Swivel To Keep Your Plastic Baits On The Hook

I like shortcuts to make things easier. I like having a backup plan if things don't go the way they should. I'm a kayak fisherman, and I have to make things simple and accessible. I created the following video to show you how I tie a clinch knot more quickly than most (I did it more slowly than usual in the video so you could follow it easily). The improved clinch knot will work the same way.

I do use hooks with bait keepers on them, if I am out on the water and run out of them I have a backup plan with the swivel method that I'm going to show you in this video. Use this method as a backup, or use it to stop buying those more expensive keeper-style hooks.

 

Happy Fishing! And, Keep Your Bait In The Water!

Just bought an Ocean Kayak Scrambler XT Angler Edition in 2010 and have been out fishing like a mad man the last three years. I'm absolutely loving it!  Actually....  Addicted!

I have tried this and it works pretty well.

That's a great trick. I have to wonder about the screw heads though, how quickly do they dissolve in the water? Is it the same as hooks do?

Ironic that there's a poster for a Trokar bait holder hook on the wall behind him LOL. Great tip & I plan to try it my next time out in the boat. Don't forget to put any stoppers, pegs, weights, etc on the line first before you put the swivel on.

    • I think if it works for you, then it's a great deal. The fish don't seem to care how much one has paid for their Kayak.
