3 Fishing Knots Everyone Should Know

Today we're tying 3 knots every fisherman needs to know. The Palomar and San Diego Jam are both great knots for attaching hooks and lures to your line. The Blood Knot is an excellent knot for attaching your main line to your leader material. We have a few tricks we do to adapt each knot to our fishing style and we're sharing those with you too!

No matter what species of fish you pursue, these are extremely helpful knots. If you're a bass fisherman, they're the only knots you'll ever need to know! Are there other knots that work well? Of course! The downside of many other knots is they're either too difficult to tie for the average angler and/or you can't tell when they're tied incorrectly.

Below is a breakdown of the different lines that we use for all of our fishing needs, as well as a link to the video explaining what each line is for.

4 Essential Knots for Bass Fishing

Lately I’ve been receiving a lot of feedback with questions about the knot selections that I use for various situations while out on the water. This video shows how to tie my four favorite knots in detail. They include the palomar, double palomar, blood knot, and the San Diego Jam Knot. I hope you find it helpful!

While these aren’t the only knots that I use they do cover about 98% of my techniques. About the only exception I can think of is when I occasionally tie a snell knot for punching.
Have you found an incredible knot that I didn’t cover? I’d love to hear about it as I’m always looking for ways to improve!
