I am retired now, but unfortunately I spent my money on wine, women and squandered the rest.

I once approached a large lure business with my ideas but did not even receive a reply, their loss not mine.

I have worked hours as a contractor that would make your toes curl, but was paid well. Unfortunately my investment in my local beer establishment did not pay off.

I have designs, but no money to develop. Investors welcome :)

The 'walk' of that lure shouldn't be so erratic that the fish will miss left/right of the lure. It's more like a jitterbug so, yes, it has some left/right movement but it's mainly in line. I agree with Dave though, a video of the action may make things more clear. You may need to make modifications to fit your specific lake/river scenarios. 

I personally would try the feathered treble hook to 1) give the fish a target and 2) reduce the motion of the lure by increasing the drag, which may be enough to get them to hook up.

I have the same issue with smaller pike on gliders where the lure will dart left and the fish will swipe right and completely miss. Luckily the pike are usually aggressive enough to swipe at it several times before giving up.
