    I can't tell if these are the same type but I've used trotline clips for a while now and they work well.

    I have been wanting to try them myself. My son bought a bunch from Walmart but we haven't had a chance to try them.

    They definitely have their advantages, but I don't like to attach my hooks with them on a trotline because the dropper will wrap around the mainline a lot more with a clip than if you attach it with a swivel. They're great for attaching mid-line weights or floats, and I sometimes use them to attach hooks to an anchored jugline.

    I use the clips on all my trot lines..It's the only way to go for me. Yes they will wrap around the mainline once in awhile, but that's a small price to pay for the advantages they have.

    It makes setting out, and retrieving trot lines a snap. Plus you can take the clips off, when you get a big fish on, so you can get it in the boat without losing it...
