I have shifted gears from my walleye baits (except the 2 drying now) and jumped into a wire through construction for a Pike/Musky bait. Below are a few pictures of what I have got done so far. Before I glue up the halves, I was hoping for some criticism or suggestions on potential errors/problems based on what your experienced eyes see. The wire was hard as hell to bend into neatly shaped hook eyes and my finger tips are still sore from that process...I can't remember the gauge (I think .051), but it is stiff!! I have made a few boo-boos but nothing that would prevent me from continuing...but I won't make the same mistakes next time (and there will be more of these in spite of the challenge thus far). Can you guys offer up any advice for the coming steps that might improve what I already have done? FYI--I thought about using hot lead to pour in the weight holes so it somewhat encapsulates the through wire---good or bad idea? I thought I could always drill out some if it is too heavy.
