    How to tie a balloon rig ?

    So like a long time ago I went fishing with guy at Proctor Lake and we used balloons to fish live bait for stripers.

    Didn't catch any stripers but finished out the limits of whites we had going from earlier that morning.

    Anyway, he tied the balloon directly to the main line with some kind of knot that would pull out and release the balloon when a fish hit or even if you jerked the rod hard. The knot would come undone. He showed me how he did it, but he tied the thing left handed and with one hand so I never got it.

    I see y'all talking about balloon fishing and wonder if anyone knows that knot.

    Dez loves whip-its, so he should have plenty.

    I don't know how to tie a balloon rig but I do know one thing.. A butt hole looks just like a balloon knot. Hope this helps.
