fishing tips and tricks
 Aug 5, 2003; 10:29PM - Bimini Twist
 Category:  Knots to use
 Author Name:  Steve vonBrandt/S&K Guide Service

Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Bimini Twist
Used primarily for offshore trolling and double-line leaders. A Bimini twist creates a long loop of line which is stronger than the the line itself. A Bimini twist is a simple method of doubling your fishing line in order to prevent chafing or to create the necessary loop in order to attach a wind-on leader. A short Bimini twist (up to five feet) can easily be accomplished by one person. To tie a Bimini twist longer than five feet takes two people, although it could be done alone with a lot of practice. This knot is a 100% knot, meaning, it retains 100% or the original strength of the line being used.


1. Measure a little more than twice the length you will want for the double-line. Bring end back to standing line and hold together. Rotate end of loop 18 - 23 times, by twisting it.
2. Slowly spread the loop to slide twists together about 10' below tag end. You want to spread the lines evenly, keeping the same angle on each side, so they do not wrap on top on one another. Step both feet through loop and bring it up around knees so pressure can be placed on column of twists by spreading knees your apart. It is easiest to learn the knot with two people so one person can hold and spread the lines while the other person ties the knot. Bimini twists over 5 feet long really need two people to tie properly, unless you have 8' legs!
3. With twists now snug together, hold standing line in one hand with tension just slightly off the vertical position. With other hand, move tag end to position at right angle to twists. Keeping tension on loop with knees, gradually ease tension of tag end so it will roll over the column of twists, beginning just below the upper twist. (as the line continues to spread apart the tag end will wrap back down over top of the twists.)
4. Spread legs apart slowly to maintain pressure on loop. Steer tag end into a tight spiral coil as it continues to roll over the twisted line. It take a practice, but avoid the twists jumping back over top. The twists should lay side by side and coil down nicely as shown to the right.
5. When spiral of tag end has rolled over column of twists, continue keeping knee pressure on loop and pinch the end of knot to keep it from unraveling. Put a finger in crotch of line where loop joins knot to prevent slippage of last turn. Now make a simple half-hitch with tag end around nearest leg of loop and pull up tight.
6. With half-hitch holding knot, release knee pressure but keep loop stretched. Using remaining tag end, take half-hitch around both legs of loop, but do not pll tight.
7. Make 2-3 more turns with the tag end around both legs of the loop, winding inside the bend of line formed by the loose half-hitch and toward the knot. Pull tag end slowly, forcing the loops to form in a spiral.
8. Moisten spirals and pull loops tight against main knot. Leave about 1/4' of a tag end when trimming. Keep practicing, it takes some time.

CABO SAN LUCAS FISH REPORT NOVEMBER 22-28, 2004

WEATHER: I am not sure if I should call the skies this week partly cloudy or partly sunny, guess it depends on how you look at it. Anyway, there were clouds every day but also plenty of sun. Our temperatures were almost perfect with nights getting down as low as 60 degrees with our day time highs in the high 80ís. No rain came with the clouds and the wind varied between 5 and 12 knots from the northwest early in the week and the northeast later in the week.

WATER: The water on the Sea of Cortez remained in the 77 degree range with blue water but as you approached the area of the Gorda Banks the northeast wind became noticeable and the water became pretty rough. Darn those winter winds! On the Pacific side of the Cape at the end of the week there was a finger of warm water about 80 degrees on the San Jaime Bank. Everywhere else the water was in the 77-78 degree range. Choppy water was the norm on the Pacific side early in the week but as the wind changed later on the water became smooth.

BAIT: Almost all Mackerel this week with a few Sardinas as well. Big baits were $2 each while the Sardinas were $20-25 a scoop.

FISHING:

BILLFISH: I only heard of two Blue Marlin and one Black Marlin being caught this week, but the bite on the Striped Marlin has begun to take off. The fish have been fairly close as well which really helps. The Striped Marlin had been stacking up on the rocky points on the Pacific side early in the week and as the week progressed some of the fish started moving off shore a bit. At the end of the week the Striped Marlin fishing was best about 7 miles off shore of the light house toward the west. Slow trolled live bait worked pretty good as did rigged dead baits. Lures were a distant third choice but still brought fish up.

YELLOWFIN TUNA: A few boats got into the footballs early in the week among the offshore Porpoise pods but there were not many of these fish showing later on as they had pretty much moved way off shore. One boat did get into a good showing of fish off the Outer Gorda Banks on Friday. Being the only boat there helped as he was able to get around two dozen quality fish in the 30-40 pound class and one fish around #80.

DORADO: The Dorado were scarce in numbers this week unless you were able to find something floating and then you needed to be the fist boat there to do well. Two Dorado a day was a good catch this week and many of the fish that were found were small ones in the #8-10 class. A few good fish in the 30 pound range were landed but all in all things were a bit slow. Best bets for fish not associated with floating debris was the points on the Sea of Cortez side, close to shore, using small live baits or chumming for them.

WAHOO: Here in Cabo it was a fairly slow week for Wahoo, but I had an invitation from a friend to fish with him up at Inman banks on the Cortez side on Friday, and I was shown what a good Wahoo bite is! We had 10 strikes on live bait and landed two fish in the 40 pound class. It was difficult to set the hook well on these fish while using #30 and #25 line, but we had a blast. That was the only consistent action for Wahoo this week as far as I know.

INSHORE: Calm water on the Pacific side allowed the Panga fleet to work the shore line hard, and the fishing is starting to pick up. A few dinky Sierras are showing up and there are still a few nice Roosterfish scattered around. Bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper is still a fair bet and just off the beach smaller game such as Skipjack and Bonito as well as small Dorado can keep the light tackle angler happy.

NOTES: The Marlin action heated up and every thing else has remained about the same as we came on to the full moon. I expected the Tuna bite to improve with the full moon and maybe it has, but the fish are too far out for us to find out! It will be a busy week for us and I am out of here this morning as I have a four hour trip to go on, sure hope we get into the Marlin! Until next week, Tight Lines!
