The double uni knot, from braid to fluorocarbon, is a great way to attach a braided main line to a fluorocarbon leader. This knot is thought to be one of the strongest fishing knots, and is commonly used by Steve Rodger when targeting Yellow Tail snappers in the Florida Keys. It is very simple and quick to tie, but is most importantly, very strong when tied properly.
In the video below, you can see Steve tie this knot quickly, and efficiently out on the water.
Overlap the ends of the fluorocarbon and braided line by around 6 inches.
Make a loop with the fluorocarbon line, around both lines, making 5 turns around the two lines.
Feed the tag end through the loop and pull it snug around the standing line.
Repeat steps 1-3 in the same order with the braided line, but make this time make 8 turns.
Moisten the lightly tightened knots and then pull the opposing standing lines in opposite directions, sliding the two knots together.
Trim the tag ends as close to the knots as possible.

With parties during the holidays, the best appetizer you can do is a smoked fish dip. We love this Smoked Kingfish dip. We will cut it up into large chunks about the size of your hand so that they cook evenly and you smoke them skin down. Personally I like to marinate mine with lots of spice, pepper and teriyaki and brown sugar.

I like to take an average like 20 pound tuna and cut the loin into thirds. Then you have to get all the red meat off of it, which you do anyway to eat it. I like to get them about 4 inches long and about 2 stacks of that will fill a jar. I like them to be about a celery stalk.

I get asked all the time what my favorite line is to fish with. Braid line is a thing of the future, but Power Pro have used the Spectra HT technology and made Maxcuatro. This line is 25% thinner diameter - what this allows us to do is use the thinner diameter for a smaller reel.
