dual tow eyes

3 posts in this topic

How many install two eyes? I'm asking those who use a thru wire system. What do you tie in the wire to, if the system uses separate wires? www.wishmasterbigbait.com displays his as such. I can't determine if he uses one wire and has fun steering it thru the dive lip holes. Thanks. the Finn

On balsa thru wire baits (the only ones I thru wire) I split the bait with a razor blade and lay in a wire frame for the hangers and the line tie. Trace around the wires with a fine pen and then use a nail set to recess the wires so the halves fit back together neatly. Glue the halves back together with 5 min epoxy and it will be stronger than ever, with an epoxy backbone. I like a brass wire line tie but prefer stainless hook hangers, so usually just run the line tie about 1 1/2 inch into the crank. Although not connected to the hangers, it is very secure when epoxied.

What I am asking is who uses 2 tow eyes when building their larger lures, like a Believer lure or a Wishmaster, large lures for pike and muskie. I have never seen them on a small bass lure.
