Wire Through Muskie Baits

2 posts in this topic

I'm getting back at building also, I'm building 3 inch deep divers. I tried this last year an got close except for the wire which lies my dilema. starting at the tail enserting the wire up to the lip slot then bending the wire up through the lip and back down then a small twist under the lip. The wire I used before was to brittle an i broke the wire. I'm looking for a wire that is very pliable but strong enough for muskie hits. Any ideas?

most ace hardware stores actually sell 25 ft. coils of stainless steel wires of different diameters. I find even the higher gauge wires easy to work with, and the wire formations are remarkably strong when bent into place. Don't be afraid to use a high diameter wire on a small bait, as a musky can destroy a small through wire job. just my 2 cents
