Step No. 1

making braided split rings for bass fishing

To perform this modification, Scroggins simply removes the back treble hook and split ring on a crankbait, topwater or spoon with a pair of pliers. He then cuts a 10- to 15-inch piece of 40- or 50-pound braided line that he’ll tie the treble hook to. 90 percent of the time, he uses a simple Palomar knot to attach the hook to the braid, but Big Show says any knot you have confidence in will work.
