teaser knot- no dropper loop

Rate this topic

27 posts in this topic

I have seen some guys run teaser rigs that are 2 peices of mono cant figure out how to tie and cant find it anywhere can someone explain the knots? These do not use a dropper loop nor do they tie the second peice to swivel. The teaser is tied to the leader almost like an alberto but its 90' to the leader.

 

Thanks

I think this may be what your asking about. Take a piece of leader material a little over 4' or so and thread it through your swivel which is already tied to your main line. Run about 10-12'' through and tie a cinch knot. You now have one line that is two leaders, one 3' long for main leader and 10" or less to tie on a teaser. I like my teaser length 6-9" depending on rod length and # test leader material, less tangling and easier to manage.

This method used 2 differnet peices of line with the teasee one tied to leader not swivel. I have tried this way and it always tangled

It seems using the long tag-end of the leader that you "clinch-knot" to the swivel, results in tangling of the teaser and short line.

The dropper loop seems to keep the teaser separated from the main leader. especially since it's a doubled-up length of leader material. If the leader is around 40-50 pound, and the teaser hook not too small, you can get the doubled-up end of the dropper loop to go thru the eye of the hook and then around it...loop-connection style. Easy to rig or change in the field without tying anything and pretty secure.

Start with a two piece leader. Join the two pieces with a blood knot. Trim one end of the blood knot real short, leave the other long for the teaser. I would try to make it so that tag end with the teaser is attached to the swivel at the other end.

Long teaser tag ends and lighter test lines do tangle but tied correctly with a short teaser tag it should function fine. Most areas shore guys up here fish require heavy test leaders (50-80), I find the heavier test lines function better. However I will say that I usually add the teaser as a separate line after I started fishing. I catch either way. To me with with these methods, the key is keeping the teaser somewhat short as mention earlier. I am not familiar with the method you are inquiring about

Using a tag end to tie on a teaser is not generally a good idea IMO - I did that as a shortcut years ago and lost some good fish because of it. When you get a double of two good fish they will put a lot of stress on a single knot and it has a good chance to fail. I always recommend using a separate teaser line attached to the same swivel - I generally drop the teaser line 10 pounds in strength. Example: Leader 60 lb - teaser leader 50 lb.

The lighter teaser line will break first if stressed by a double hookup saving your more expensive plug/offering on your main leader.
