    First off, how is everybody doing? I must say this is a pretty nice site, informative, and more importantly it seems that the ppl around here are nice and glad to help out other members. Its hard to find a forum thats not full of jerks, trust me, i moderate 3. Anyway, my name is Robert and i live in Addis(West Baton Rouge) right accross the river from Baton Rouge. I love catfishing more than anything(Blues!!). At present time i do not have a boat, my uncle sunk it years ago and i gave up fishing, i've just recently gotten back into it, so i'm stuck with bank fishing for now which really isnt all that bad.

    My first question is one that i have not been successful googling, what is the BEST way to tie a knot and how? Including trotlines tightlining and general casting.

    Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

    PS. anybody here from BR know of any good bank fishing spots?(river or not)

    Robert, Welcome to the B.O.C. Enjoy your stay here, I am glad to see members join from Louisiana because I am originally from Louisiana. We have few from around Shreveport, but not many from North east or south east Louisiana.

    Welcome to the BOC Robert. I personally like the palomar knot. It seems to have the best breaking strength(at least line capacity) over the other knots.

    I like both the Palomar and snell, I just was taught the Palomar knot, this summer buy Jag Doctor a BOC member I met on this site!!!,,, I've been using Palomar to tie on my snap swivels on my bass casting rig, as I wore out the snell knot I had tied, and sent a real nice Kastmaster lure over the top of the Tall trees lining the edge of the water I was fishing........:smile2:..

    Yea, Yea, I know,,,, Re-tie more often,,,,,,,,,,,:wink:
