Not that I should be your go-by on this, but I have used several different point of connection to these lures. I have used two different types of speed clips, a loop knot and Palomar knot. I used the Palomar that once, because I was fishing over heavy shell and I needed as strong a knot as I could get in case I needed to pull some shell up off the bottom (which I did). The Palomar knot would have limited the action of the lure if I had been walking the dog, but I was jigging it straight up and a slow, shaking descent so it was not a problem

As important as anything is the right hook and/or hook tuning. Be sure to check the Troutsupport website for Tobin's videos on the bait, but especially on hook selection and, in some cases, tuning. VMCs EWG Swimbait hooks need no tuning, but I have only found them at FTU or on-line.
I would also suggest you get some belly weights. I have only had need for added weight in a few cases and I have, up to now, used the weighted version of the hooks I use, but I have belly weights too and they can be added to any brand of EWG Swimbait hook.

I was also using Chickenboy's Bubba Clucker in the clear with gold or silver glitter and those were doing well too but they are a smaller bait and I was catching some undersized fish with that. Everything that I caught on the TSL was a keeper and in the 18 to 22 inch range. I was using the bone diamond color TSL.
