For much of the winter, I've been experimenting with splices, knots and wind-on leaders. After a lot of trial and error, I settled on a knotless system (except from leader to tackle) that I have tested on land and on four fishing trips. During the most recent trip I was able to put the system to a serious test, landing a 130ish lb. (+/-) fish with high pressure, in under 10 minutes. The attached photo tells the story. I have implemented this system in JB Hollow line. I pre-make two types of leaders and a pre-leader. The leaders are either 80# or 125#. The on-water change out time for the leaders is about a minute. For the terminal tackle knot (which I also pre-tie on land) I have switched from Uni to a long time favorite of mine, the twice through Jansik/Ryo-shi for its simplicity and stability. Sometimes I use rings and sometimes I use swivels, but each of them connects to my poppers/jigs with a split ring. I leave the dock with 10 of each type of leader (and a few pre-leaders) in my bag and change them as needed. Because my leaders have only a 12 inch splice section, they cast as well as P.R. or Mid knots. Line twisting (a feared issue with hollow Spectra) has not been a problem at all. Lastly, I want to give credit where credit is due. Many of you at 360tuna have provided insights that have been key for me, especially Basil Pappas of BHP Tackle who has provided line, tools, technical support and encouragement. Thank you all.
