Pike / Predator Swivels

Swivels are an essential piece of tackle to help prevent lure twist, especially when lure fishing. A swivel can be added to the line a few feet above the lure to reduce and prevent line twist when casting and retrieving lures. When predator fishing a wire trace is commonly used, these normally feature a swivel at one end, where the line is tied to, and a snap swivel at the other end. The snap swivel has the same anti-twist properties but also features a snap or clip, which allows lures to easily and quickly be clipped on and unclipped allowing the angler to easily swap lure.
Wire traces and rigs for bait fishing can also benefit from a swivel. Large baits aren’t very aerodynamic and can spin during casting and retrieving, a swivel will help prevent this twist from reaching the line. Multiple traces can also be prepared at home with a swivel on the end which allows them to be easily tied on when out on the bank.
