    How much did you pay for those Lucky Craft lures?

    Here is a easy way I use to save your LC lure from
    those barracuda teeth and bat ray tail and enhance the swimming action.
    I use a leader made of single strand wire i like to use the old high E string from my guitar.
    And you can rig it two ways, 1. as a clip on change many lures 20151124_183507.jpg


    or 2.20151126_225857.jpg
    as a permanent leader for that one lure. I make them 6in long or the same size of the lure with a haywire twist No swivel ,use a round nose pliers or nail to form the head of the loops, the high "E" string, has a diameter of 0.0100 inch (or 0.254mm) and its free.

    Is that swivel from the high E string from the guitar ? if so, how do you make it ? OR, where do you or how do you make that "clip/swivel/guitar string" ? I'm sorry, I am on the very slow side right now because I haven't gone fishing for over a month now ! and my brain is starting to become "mushie"

    Great idea! I'm new to using Lucky Craft and I've been hesitant to string them up on light line. In your experience, the visibility of the guitar string doesn't create issues for you?
