Crimping is a method to connect lures, hooks and other terminal tackle to monofilament fishing line or cable when the line is too thick to tie good knots. Well-executed fishing crimps are a failsafe and slip-free way to secure your gear for even the biggest fish. TackleDirect has saltwater fishing crimps and kits for rigging from brands such as American Fishing Wire, Jinkai and Hi-Seas, along with expert advice on creating a good crimp that can make the difference between celebrating a great catch and bemoaning a lost opportunity.
Saltwater crimps are commonly made from aluminum, brass or copper, as these metals donít react with salt water and thus are less likely to damage fishing leader. Aluminum crimps and sleeves typically shape better to monofilament line and fluorocarbon leader, while brass and copper react better with cable. Single barrel crimps are adequate for monofilament line and for smaller fish species, and double barrel crimps give you insurance when using cable. Double-sleeving also allows you to put more space between hook eyes and lures.
