I'm not sure it will hold with monofilament, fluorocarbon or braid. I'd be interested to hear how it works.  :)

I was gonna use it to tie on jerk baits and stuff that needs movement, I know a knot tied directly to that bait wont let it move like it should and that's an easy knot for me to tie :)
 with these  old fingers.

Is this the same as a loop knot and is it as strong ?


I'm not sure I know what you mean by a loop knot, but the bowline can be used to create a loop that will not slip. In fact, that's what it is designed to do. The cleat lines for my boat have nonslip loops created by bowline knots. I can quickly and easily slip one end of my lines through the boat cleats and the other end through the dock cleats to tie up on the courtesy dock. Since the dock cleats are larger, my loops for that end are larger than the ones for the boat cleats. I find this quite handy when tying up to the dock by myself.   ;)

I really don't look at them very often as when I get a chance to go fishing I go regardless of what the charts might say concerning either the day or the time of day. With that said, I do think there is something to them. I also think they might affect other forms of wildlife besides fish. There are a lot of rabbits (despite a healthy population of coyotes) around they development where my Lake Powell property is located. When heading to the lake very early in the morning if I see a lot of rabbits out and about that is generally, but not always, a good sign that at least the early morning bite will be good. Conversely, when I don't see any rabbits that is often (again not always) a sign that the early morning bite will be tough. That sometimes translates into the whole day and sometimes it doesn't.

I have had many days on Powell where the fishing started slow and then suddenly exploded. I think that could be related to barometric or solar/lunar changes or even the amount of water being pulled through the dam. I guess the bottom line is I believe there might be something to all this as well as a number of other things when it comes to fish activity.  ;)

Do any of you place much faith in the "solunar" charts that appear in most fishing magazines?  If so, in which magazines?   ???   ???   ???

Cheers!  Rich

Check the BDO FAQ section, it explains how to load pictures here. It takes a third party hosting site which you can use both on a phone or computer.

With that said this forum will be archived and no longer available here soon. Most of us have moved over to the facebook group for that reason. If you don't have a facebook account it easily set up and you can use the link above to request membership into the group. Beyond that there will no longer be a Fish talk/gone fishin forum. We have not been given a specific date but I was told it would be a few weeks which was a few weeks ago so I expect it to happen soon.

If you have any issues or questions p[lease let me know I will be more than willing to help in any way possible,
Steve
