What Knots Should You Use For Different Lures & Presentations
Does your knot style change with different lure types?
It’s not really about the lure but more about the presentation!
Snug knots versus loop knots will help create a different movement in the water.
So in this new video, you’ll learn which knot to use with different lures for the perfect presentation (so you can catch more fish)!

Snug Knot Vs Loop Knot For Lures [VIDEO]
The two knots that I tie the most for my artificial lures are the Trilene knot (snug) and the non-slip loop knot (loop).
Here’s the breakdown of which knot to use with different types of lures:
- Topwater = Loop Knot
- Stick Baits/Jerk Shads = Loop Knot
- Shrimp Lure = Loop Knot
- Paddletail = Snug Knot
When you need an erratic retrieve for ambush predators, go with a loop knot because it allows the lure have more freedom of motion in the water.
This works well with topwater lures to walk the dog, jerk baits, and shrimp lures.
If you need a more streamlined presentation, then go with a snug knot.
A snug knot is great for a steady retrieve or for jigging lures off of the bottom.
Here are the lures used in this video:
- Slam Shady Paddletail
- Alabama Leprechaun Jerk Shad
- Moonwalker Topwater (Insider Only)
- Power Prawn Shrimp Lure
