The Improved Clinch knot is one of the most widely used fishing knots. It is a great way to secure a fishing line to a hook, lure, or swivel. The "improved" version shown here includes an extra tuck under the final turn. The standard Clinch knot is tied by passing the line through the hook then turning it 5-7 times before putting the tag end back through the hole created between the hook and the first twist.
This method works well on most lines, but on certain monofilaments and fluorocarbons, the knot will not stay tied. The knot was improved when someone figured out that passing the line back through the larger loop a second time, lessens the chnaces of the knot slipping.
In the video below, Saltwater Experience’s, Tom Rowland, shows us the proper way to tie this extremely useful knot.

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.
