    The most common knot used by catfish persons is the snell and the palomar. Other resources can be found at http://www.netknots.com/html/fishing_knots.html. You should retie your hook knots before each fishing trip. The knot gets damaged by the fish that you catch, transporting your gear and storing your gear. It is always better to be prepared than to experience failure.
