Lesson Plan and Activity
Putting the Lure Together
Once the print is finished, bend a stainless steel or similar wire to the shape of the coutout on the insides of the bait with a loop at each opening. Also add some lead or steel BBs to the cutout spheres at the bottom of the bait, then super glue the two halves together with the parts inside. Once you test the bait, if the bait seems to veer off to one side or another, adjust the front eye on the bait by bending in the direction of the way the bait was going and adjust until it swims straight.
