For Musky baits what type lead is used. Do you pour your own or is there a pre made type of weight. I am not a big fan of melting lead especially since the temp here is around - 10 to -20 for the next couple of months!

I melt mine from old wheel weights,but alot of people epoxy egg sinkers in for weighting baits

I was using egg sinkers now I use water gremlin pencil lead wire. It is 1/4 inch diameter and I get it at fleet farm.

I use the egg sinkers and run the hook hanger through the sinker and epoxy to the bait. Cap off with two part epoxy paste and sand to finish.

I like Jerry's suggestion. Kinda solves a second problem of how to make a good attachment for the belly hook and then i can just make the tail hook the wire threw which is easy.
