Spent Saturday evening floating leeches under bobbers. Time and time again, I found that the leech had tangled the end of my line into a knot!
Here was the exact scenario:
0-5 mph wind
8 lbs floro leader
1/16 oz Fireball short shank jig (tied direct to the leader)
Each leech was hooked one time through the “sucker”
Medium size ribbon leeches kept in water at the same temp as the lake
Soft “lob” cast 15’ from the boat
What am I doing wrong? Anyone else have leeches twist the line into a knot?
