Hi Italo, I’ve noticed that when you fish crank baits that you seem to use a loop knot, like the rapala knot to allow the lure more action. Do you use the same knot when you’re fishing jerkbaits and poppers as well? What about lipless cranks like the Rappin Rap?Posted on July 16th, 2015
If a crankbait comes equipped with a split-ring I normally use a the Berkley Knot. If a crankbait does not come equipped with a split ring I either use a lightweight “snap”, or I tie the Rapala Knot to the eye of the lure so that the eye of the lure has enables the crankbait to move freely from side to side. I apply this rule for all lures that need the “free-action” (not using a tight knot); lipless crankbaits, jerkbaits, poppers, even jigs, etc.
