The Improved Clinch Knot

Using the proper knot is very important to ensure that the Baitanator is securely attached to the line before casting. We recommend using the “improved clinch knot. This is a very basic but extremely strong knot.

How to Tie a Kids Fishing Hook On

The idea is that as a fish tugs on the line with the clinch design the knot tightens on itself. Don’t forget to wet the line with water or saliva while tying the knot so you can be sure it does not break when you get a bit and it is under pressure. The moisture also helps the knot slip together smooth and easy.

Learning To Cast

We developed a simple diagram to show your kids when you are teaching them to cast. They want to keep their pole between the numbers while casting. This is equivalent to 10:00 and 2:00 on a clock face.

Baiting the Hook Safely

The Baitanator has a large capsule end that allows kids to hold it securely while they add bait to the stainless steel hook. The large surface area of the capsule is more than just a handle it is a spring loaded compartment that holds loads of extra bait. The combination of each loading and long lasting bait supply let kids fish for much longer with less time spent re-baiting the hook or wondering if their bait has been nibbled off the hook.
