Default Re: Knot to swim bait and iron

Chesapeake: Maybe you’re attempting too many wraps with the SDJ? For 10 lb. Steelhead fishing, I use five. For salmon with 30 and 40 lb., three or four. The weak point in any knot is where it goes around the eye or if wraps overlap each other.

Technically, we shouldn’t be stressing knots with drag setting too tight for the lb. test. That’s why so many different knots do an adequate job and one knot doesn’t stand out above the others. Match the lb. test to the job and call it good by using a knot with a proven track record.
