  3. With loop end and other end, tie a simple overhand knot, but be sure to keep it very loose and large (you’ll need that loop in the next step!)

  5. Grab the hook in one hand and the line strands in the other and pull slowly. The knot will begin to cinch. (Be sure that the loop cinches above the eyelet of the hook!)

When I was a kid and learning how to fish… one of the first knots my Dad showed me was the clinch knot. I used that for years. And then I came across the palomar knot. It’s the go-to knot for me. It’s very strong and it’s very easy to tie.

Trout fishing tip

When it comes to fishing, you don’t want to just fish… you want to Put A Hook N1. We’ve got a tip to help you do just that. Stick with us for the N1 Outdoors N1 Minute.

Today we go to Fries, Virginia, to hear from Jessup Lambert, who’s got a tip to help you catch more trout.

Hey guys, on this week’s N1 Minute, we’ve got a few tips for you when it comes to trout fishing.



The trout lure

I’m going to focus on using the two-and-a-half inch Gulp Minnow… the Watermelon Pearl. Any kind works, but I prefer this one. My advice would be to hook it up with a drop shot, probably 8-10 inches.

Use a size 6 hook, bait hook, it doesn’t matter which way.





How to fish it

Your best success can come from either throwing the Gulp Minnow upstream and retrieving it back toward you and letting it swim in the current.

Usually, the drop shot will hold the minnow in place. It will almost turn around and look upstream, giving it a life-like feature.

If you cast downstream, I’d suggest a slow retrieval, that way it can do the same thing, and flutter in the current, giving it a life-like feature. And the trout tend to strike it when it stops moving.




Generally, in 2-3 feet of water you’ll have your best success. I have fished it in lakes, bringing it across the bottom. You’ll have the same results. It doesn’t matter if it’s dingy or clear. I’ve had the same success with the Gulp Minnow.

Thanks for tuning in to this weeks N1 Minute. I hope you get to Put A Hook N1.
