I agree and the respect is mutual my good friend!Those crazy ass wahoo will make you pull your hair out at times. Its all about risk vs reward with them imho. Do you want bites or do you not want to keep your "Stuff"..?? On last years trip I had it all, wire, heavy fluoro and doubled mono, the whole kit. I went something like 4 for 40. Had bites on it all but got bitten off, dog boned, spit the hook at the boat, you name it. Even went 10 bites on the wire with bait only to be bitten off every time..!! Talk about frustrating. Lost about $250 in one day BUT I got the bites. Just very little luck. This year was vastly different as my ratio was like 42% with straight 50# mono. Sometimes its better to be lucky than good..!!
I have come to the conclusion that for me, I will forgo the wire and take my chances. I would much rather get bites and risk losing my stuff than to drown a wired bomb and watch everyone else have the fun. The $250 in gear or whatever I may lose is pretty small in comparison to the $3 or $4k it costs to go on one of those trips to begin with.
As someone that I respect once told me "Gotta use all your tools in your tool chest..!" In the case of wahoo fishing that phrase means that I want every advantage I can get to get bit and that means no wire and high risk..!!
Isn't that what wahoo fishing is all about anyway..??!!!
Your mileage and opinions may vary..
I could be wrong but I believe they, or people affiliated with them, popularized using the uni instead of the overhand knot (ala Tony Pena Knot) as the stopper so they changed the name with the slight variation. Atleast that is my understanding of it. Could be totally off the mark but that is all I have ever known it by so that is what I call it. Still cannot tie it well. Cant get it to cinch well atleast to my liking. Have started trying to learn he FG knot but still don't like the way mine cinch down. Practice, practice, practice...Why is it called a Bob Sand's????
