Skirts for Musky Spinnerbait
« on: 01/15/13 22:39 UTC »
I've ordered a mold that will allow me to make a 2.5 oz spinnerbait appropriate for musky.  I plan on dremeling out the wire slot to make room for two wires, so I can turn it into a twin spin design.  I ordered some of the paddle tail skirts to add some bulk and wobble.  Does anyone know of a good source of full length musky skirts like the ones you see on the double cowgirls?  I can heap on the flashabou and maybe some round rubber and other skirt material myself, tying it on there, but would rather go with a cleaner look that how I know that mess will turn out.

  This is the place where I buy my skirts. I always tie mine on, I think they hold better. But you can buy it either way here.   http://fishingskirts.com

Thanks guys.  I will check out those links.  I tie mine on too.  The usual bass skirt layers seem too limp to give a full profile.  I tried out my musky twin spin this weekend and was happy with it.  I did lose one of the big blades, showing a need for a more durable link to a size 8 Indiana blade.  No follows or bites, but I have faith that it will work.

Do-It has everything one needs to build his own skirts. Why not spin your own?

These are 100% Do-It. The lure body, the wires, the hooks, the beads, the tinsel.....everything. Easy to get, easier to work with.
