My 600' 3 years old nylon line is starting to lose chickens after a few hours.  I lose at least 15 out of 88 baits per trip.  I only bait with fresh chicken, snoods pulled tight - but not too tight.

Any thoughts???

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

  Very simple use a SS clip at the end of that snood and sew the neck thru the center hole in the bone ?

make sure the necks are FULLY thawed.  you can go tight on a semi frozen snood, but the knot will slack once the snood thaws in the water and gone it goes.

Turtles will cut the necks in half and take the rest. But it could be other issues like the other people said. Catfish or bait frozen.

And make them 3/16 snoods, would be less likely to cut through than 1/8.
