Line Ties On Glide Baits

3 posts in this topic

I have noticed that some line ties are horizontal and some are vertical on glide baits. Does this play a role in the action of the lure?

Thanks,

CLM

Great question. I have heard it said that a horizontal line tie lends itself to a more true left/right glide, less apt to the up/down jerkbait action. And the vertical line tie lends itself to a more erratic up/down + left/right action. That being said, I have gliders that do the opposite of what's said above.
