Musky bait pics

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I have been away from this site for awhile but I am glad to be back. This site is the best and better than ever. Here is a link for some Musky baits Ive been making. Most of these dive to 30 feet without a problem. Enjoy. BP

The musky baits have large adjustable metal lips much bigger than bass baits. The lips are about 3-4 inches long by 2-3 inches wide. The dig deep quick.

Great looking lures and the pics too.

I really like that horizontal pivoting tail idea. Never seen it before, is it yours or is it out there already.

Musky baits are much bigger, they can go faster without blowouts, and the big lips match the body size, most musky guys troll 3-7mph at least 3mph usually, so combine the size and speed = depth, and obviously the angle of lip, I made a few that were bumping bottom in 50fow going 4mph. Line diameter plays a role to, I was using 60lb braid. You would rarely ever catch a musky below 25' anyway but I just don't let out as much line to get it at 25'.
