The Baja knot can make live-lining more effective when targeting big fish and using heavy mono. This form of the perfection loop is tied using three loops as opposed to two. The knot allows the hook to slide easily and live baits to move naturally-that means more fish.

1. Form a four-inch loop in the end of the line and pinch it between your thumb and forefinger, leaving a foot-long tag end. Slide the hook to the loop base.

2. Draw the tag across the front of the first loop, forming a second, smaller loop. Pass the tag behind the main line.

3. Repeat Step 2. This time form a third medium-size loop. Move the hook to the top of the smallest loop and pass it between the medium and large loop. Use pliers to pull the hook and snug the knot.
