If I was going to tie straight to my braided line (which I never do) I would probably just use a uni but go through eye of the lure twice. I always have a flouro carbon leader on though.

I've never lost a fish due to a knot with this one: Go through the eye 3 times, keep both loops formed. Go around the line 6-8 times, and then go back through the loop formed by the first twist and the two loops formed by going through the eye, wet and pull tight.

By far, the most easiest to tie a knot to a lure, jighead is this one:

Double your line, run the doubled line through the O ring or eye, then bring the doubled line over the single line, then back through the loop created, then bring your lure back back in between the doubled line in your hand, pull tight. Takes about five seconds and I have never lost a fish due to the knot coming loose and never will with that knot.

P.S. I second what Tyler0421 said, always use a flourocarbon leader.

Spider hitch to double braid, an improved albright with three turn uni lock to fasten leader and San Diego jam knot to attach everything else. I also use a San Diego jam knot to attach a swivel for bottom fishing.

This works for me.

And I use 8 to 10 wraps usually.

I just use the improved clinch knot for inshore when tying braid to a swivel. In the last 10 years of using braid I have NEVER had it come loose. It's the same knot I use for mono or fluorocarbon.

My grandson took his Trout rod and reel to the Bridge Rubble last spring and caught a legal Amberjack on 15 lb. braid tied to a swivel and 20 lb. flouro leader with a Owner Mutu light circle hook all tied with the improved clinch knot.
