I used to use Mid Knot without burning the end mono with lighter as I firmly believed that the knot doesn't slip if made properly.
I haven't had any problem with Mid Knot for jigging. However, my Mid Knot got loosened sometime after casting poppers
I asked other fishermen who use Mid Knot or PR knot whether they have any experience of loosened knot while popping. Their answers are usually NO.
I was wondering what I did wrong. I watched others to finish PR Knot or Mid Knot with half hitch knot as I do. I don't see any difference.
When I fished in Southern Oman last week, I asked Mohammad, a fishing guide, to make a PR knot for me and I tested it for several hours. I didn't see the knott get loosened. Now I realize that the only difference is I don't burn the end of mono and others burn it.
