    For the first one, I guess it's not that bad, I will improve upon it soon...

    I'm thinking of making a full set of DYI Fishing and Shrimping videos posting them on ShrimpNFishFlorida™ FLorida™'s YouTube channel... This should help with Google search results & listings and bring some new members to our club...

    I will be making some DYI Video from;
    boat rigging,
    anchoring,
    equipment,
    Shrimping,
    dip nets,
    box nets,
    lights,
    making LED lights
    fishing,
    fishing equipment,
    fishing baits,
    cast net throwing
    boat cleaning the night you come back, then in the Moring cleaning,
    boat motor flushing,
    corrosion protecting for your boat and motor,
    Batteries used, charging your batteries, and maintaining your batteries,
    etc...

    Any ideas you may have for some videos let me know...

    Thanks

    Nice video - Sam! I had already watched it on Youtube.

    I use the loop knot AKA Canoeman knot on my jigs. That leaves a loop on the eye and gives the jig some freedom to move around as you retrieve it. A lot of the top water lure guys also use it, especially on the Zara Spook and Skitterwalk.

    Bob had to move your videos here

    Thanks Bob, the loop knot AKA Canoeman knot is a good know for lures... not sure how it holds up to larger fish? Most knots either break at the knot because the line crimps to tight, or slips and becomes untied with ;larger fish...

    Since I'm use to fishing offshore I got use to the Gator Tough knot, because it will handle the largest of fish...

    Thanks for sharing this video...

    I may make a video for it soon...and also test it under pressure...

    Get Alan to make the cast net video. It's fun watching him talk with rope in his teeth. 64726e86e17c86dd0981aa3c12528b35696a16cf_r.gif

    Looks like a big improvement on the old Clinch knot.
