Which Nylon Bait Thread Is The Best To Use? For years i've used Atlas Mike's Miracle Thread for securing soft baits like fish & shrimp for chunking baits from the shoreline. It prevents the bait from being dislodged from the cast & limits the "little critters" from chewing the bait off before something big comes along. Just tightly wrap the stretchable nylon thread around the bait several times & pull the last wrap to dig the line in before snapping it off. Easy peasy. Recently i found another similar brand dubbed Anglerdream Bait Thread. It also does the exact same thing that Miracle Thread can do at a fraction of the cost. Both nylon threads stretch & is invisible underwater. They both also come in supplied plastic tubes. So what are the differences? Miracle Thread comes in a 100ft spool while Anglerdream length is 100m (328ft). Also the price of 8 vials of Anglerdream Thread is roughly that of 2 vials of Miracle Thread. The only difference in the actual product is the thread diameter of Miracle Thread seems to be slightly thicker. I used both products in the field and found nothing wrong. Both nylon bait threads held up extremely well during casting. I still have a few vials of Atlas Mikes Miracle Thread that i got from Walmart so i will use them up. I'm sold on the newer brand Anglerdream Bait Thread simply due to the price difference & that the box i bought will last a lifetime (providing my fishing buddies don't watch this video & start asking for vials). It's just a matter of personal preference which bait thread you prefer. No right or wrong answers here. For me handling & using these 2 products my mind is made up. Good luck to all out there! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WlupBWrnY8
OK thanks for the info Chris. That's a good price for sure, kind of the same reason why Wal Mart does so well, it is hard to compete with their prices.
Good Question, I don't think it's a major concern. Either 2 things happen that i notice using Atlas Mike's Miracle Thread over the years- 1) The tiny bait-stealers will eventually pick that hook clean. I know they're tiny because they don't ring the bell. 2) When a big fish hits the bait the bait is still on the hook when i bring it in. I only use offset circle hooks which means the hook is sunk into the edge of the mouth & not in the gut. If i used a different type of hook that ends up in the gut, it'll be different. I thought i was a hard core Miracle Thread user. But when i ordered a bunch of these from China and got the box in 5 days, i was blown away by how cheap it was and how well it works. Chris:)
Question Chris, is the nylon used in the thread biodegradable? The reason I ask is that if a fish swallows something that is nylon and it isn't biodegradable, isn't there a chance that it could kill the fish? I know you usually release a lot of your fish but if they break off or you released them, I cannot imagine it would be good for them. If you were keeping them, I guess it would not matter. Not trying to attack you but since you did not mention it, I thought I would ask.
