The "true" snooded trot line, with bungee and all, was a bit too much for me. I decided to use a bit of my creativity and develop a modified snood line. Instead of bungee chord (which I couldn't find enough of), I used the 1/4" black "crab line" I bought from Bass Pro Shops. I also used the same line for the main trotline. I attached the snood line using a "bowline" knot, then made the loop (to hold the bait) by making a "two half hitchs" knot. I then had to go back and, with a lighter, fuse the ends of all the frayed snoods. IT TOOK FOREVER!!!!!!!!!
As I constructed the line, I put it (neatly) into a five gallon bucket. After a few epochs had passed, it was complete!
As I got up, I knocked the bucket over, and half the line came out in a jumbled mess.....AAAAAEEEEEEE!!!!!
(edited for readers sake...) Anyway, because the line was of a large enough diameter, it easily came undone...thank GOD!
I'm going out July 5th, not sure where...maybe the Wye? Let's hope. If it is a success, I'll put some pictures up.
