    I wil do my best to help ya out...

    Any kind of line which bolsters a stiff fine for an attempt to tie one on has got to pay:big_smile:!

    Ok, OK, here we go...
    I generally gear up with spider wire 40lbs.
    After using my best knot I know of, ( Improved clinched knot ) this dog gone line wants to unwind like a mad mustang on steroides!:crazy:


    Start your 1st knot closest to the reel and work down.

    Try droppin' a few drops of super glue while holding each knot together firmly long enough for the chemical reaction to take place to bond with each of your knots.


    Go Get em' & Good Fishin' and hold on to em' tight!:wink:

    ok i tie my first jighead with a trilene knot then i put my 2nd jighead on and run it up close to the first then i tie my knot thinking its about 6 inches from the first jighead by the time i draw my knot down its 24 inches from the first jighead. first thing im gonna do is get the cajun red line off and get some 10 lb test big game. just to give you some idea of what im trying to rig up . it is like a sabiki rig only with jigheads . man im plum tukered out.

    Jim, go into the bass section and ask them how they tie a drop-shot rig. I have seen it in some mags but I don't recall how to tie it. But all you'll end up with is three drops on one line. Should work for what you need. Hope this helps.
