Jointed Baits?

4 posts in this topic

I shape and sand the bait, cut it, sand the sharp edges, then paint and clearcoat both halves and lastly put in the joint hardware. Do a search on "joint" to explore various alternatives for that.

Ok. I was thinking just putting a eye bolt and then running a rod down through it like ive seen before. Thats what im trying to figure out how to do.

Guys use all kinds of wire joints on baits, so you can go in any direction you fancy. The simplest is to link 2 screw eyes together and install them. I use hand twisted screw eyes made from .031" hard temper stainless steel wire: make one screw eye, then thread it onto the second before you twist it into a screw. I use 2 pairs on each joint and it gives the bait a very free action, which I like. You can also recess the holes in the bait segments so that the screw eye joint is very inconspicuous.
