Leader and Swivel or no?

Discussion in 'Tackle Talk' started by DblHeader, Aug 17, 2005.

  1. When using spinner baits, buzz baits, topwaters, rapalas, etc do you use a steel leader and swivel? or just tie the line to the bait? I've heard people use both ways.
    thanks, Joe

    Always tie directly to lure, unless your trolling.

    I would agree with Capt. Muskey, and include the exception of blade baits and spoons (vibee's/cicadas/hopkins). For those however, a snap (not swivel) is best.
  4. The only people I know that use steel leaders on everything, just don't want to keep retying. Only time I would use a length of leader and swivel is when I use roostertails because they put a nasty twist in the line.
