My First Lures Made With Thru-wire Construction

7 posts in this topic

Here are my first lures utilizing thru wire construction. I used .062 304L stainless steel wire and drilled through the entire bait. Both types of baits are 4" long. What do you think?

Thanks,

Greg

Diemai,

Thanks. I have been making lures for a while, just screw eye versions. These were my first ones using thru wire. Yes, I was able to find some open water last weekend and they all ran perfectly without tuning. My best guess I will get 4-6 feet as these are designed for spring and fall/winter fishing. I am making a deeper diving version as well, but wanted to focus on the shallow baits.

Thanks,

Greg

Hi,

Thanks. I used the material that you use to line drawers. I found it at Wal-Mart I believe. If you can't find it, send me a PM and I will send you a piece if you want some.

Thanks,

Greg

great job! solid looking lures!

what kind of masking did u use for the scales on the slender one? it really makes it stand out!
