I have been running my thru wire into and thru my lip. After looking thru a muskie catalog, I am seeing some mfgr's opt for a tow eye on the nose. The lip may come out beyond the eye, while Grandma's lips end and the eye. Some of those Grandma's offer 20' depths while trolling. Seems with the eye in the body, I could switch out lips to see different actions. Is the reason for the tow eye in the lips to gain greater depths?? Thanks a bunch.

definately the tow eye out on the lip will put the bait further down. when doing so take into account lip angle. these baits will be very sensitive to tune also. if you need any help maybe i can help out . pm me
