I don't fish for musky, or pike, or any really toothy fish, so I can only speak about the bass lures I make.

I use pine for some gliders, but I use either 1 1/2" screw eyes, or twisted stainless steel wire, again 1 1/2". I use 5 minute epoxy to seat both.

If I'm using poplar, a harder wood, I don't mind going to shorter screw eyes or twist wires.

I like pine because it is light, but strong, and I can really have a low center of gravity which is important for gliders and walk the dog lures.
