Good post.

I also use swivels, primarily for the convenience factor. Given the number of experienced fisherman I know that don't use them, I sometimes wonder if it affects my success rate. However, changing lures often until you find the pattern seems to be at least as important as how the lure connects to the line and so it is a tradeoff for me. It is also the way I was taught by my grandfather during long trolling sessions in the boat which I'm sure has something to do with it...

I would be interested in any studies that looked at success rates with and without.
