For mono - Improved clinch

For my heavy braided dacron catfish/pike setup I'll occasionally use an anchor bend.

I do like the palomar because it's so easy to tie but the strongest knot I know is the double uni knot. One cool trick you can do with the palomar on light line is to do a spider hitch(I think that's what it's called) and make a shock leader. The doubled up line helps protect from sharp teeth and rocks and is relatively easy to tie.

double uni with 3 wraps (just make sure to check for overlay before cinching down as you would with an albright). palomar if its dark (it's just easier). i also use a rapala knot occasionally for some cranks and topwaters if i think they need a little more action, but then again i never throw cranks or topwaters with less than 12#.
