Albright Knot Jig

Do you fish braided line with a monofilament or fluorocarbon leader? The Albright Knot is one of the best for this but to me was a hard knot to tie. I made a simple jig for tying this knot that I keep in my boat. You can make your own jig or modify it anyway you want to but this one works great for me and is very simple to make. Here is a video of the jig and how I tie the Albright Knot.

Side Image Scanning- Old Car or Truck Frame Found

I like to record from my Side Image and Down Image units as I’m fishing. I usually try to spend the last 15 minutes or so of my day on the water recording what my units is scanning. If you don’t know how to do this there are a few older blogs on this site that will show you what you need and how to do it. Just do a search for RECORDING from the search bar on the right side of the screen.

As it was recording yesterday I found this old auto frame in Pickwick Lake. To me it looks like the frame might be the only thing left. Since it is upside down I can’t tell if it’s a truck or car frame. I’ll try to get a better image of it the next time I’m in the area. If you would like to take a look at it here are the GPS coordinates: N 34 46.333 – W087 42.199
