Offshore Swivel Knot How to tie the Offshore Swivel Knot. The Offshore Swivel Knot is an exceptionally strong knot to attach a swivel or a hook to a line. If one strand breaks, the other will probably hold. It is often used in conjunction with the Bimini Twist Knot. The Offshore Swivel Knot is one of 12 great fishing knots included on the Pro-Knot Saltwater Fishing Knot Cards (click to see).

Offshore Swivel Knot

1. Thread the loop of the double line through the eye of the swivel and make a twist in the loop.

2. Fold the end of the loop back onto the double line above the swivel.

3. Hold the loop against the double line and rotate the swivel through the opening 3 to 6 times – more wraps with light line, less with heavy line.

4. Wet the knot and hold the double lines and pull the swivel in opposite direction.

5. Work the twists down onto the eye of the swivel.
