Wooden Muskie lures are widely used by the people around the world to catch big fish. It is not very difficult to build your own Muskie lure with wood. All you need is a little time and few tools plus equipment.
There are few things, mentioned in the given steps, which you must keep in your mind while building the wooden Muskie lure.
- Stainless spring wire
- Pliers with cutters
- Preformed rubber skirt
- Various colour and material beads
- Weighted body
- Willow blade assembly
- Treble hook
First of all, you have to take all the necessary measurements. You can take the help of a steel tape to take the essential measures. It is extremely important for you to take the accurate measurement so as to avoid any kind of inconvenience afterwards.
Then, take the spring wire and bend its one end in U shape. After that, put the end back to the main wire through the hook and wrap it firmly 2 to 3 times.
Now, you have to slide the rubber down the wire so as to hang the skirt over the hook. It will act as an attractor for the fish and will disguise the hooks.
Take the beads and put them on the skirt. You can use any kind of bead (metal, plastic or glass). It will be better for you to select a bead colour which is similar to the baseline area of your location.
In order to dive the lure deep down, you will have to put some weight on it. You can easily put on some weight by adding more beads.
Now, you have to fasten the U pivot to the wire through the blade hole. In order to attach the pivot firmly, you will have to rotate the wire few times. Then, you have to place one more bead to the wire just above the U.
You will have to make a loop with the help of the wire right above the bead. After that, wrap the wire on the main wire around 2 to 3 times. You must know that this loop will act as a point in which you can tie the fishing line.
