    Musky Smorgasborg

    Can't decide what color DBL 10 to throw? Just throw them a smorgasborg and let them decide. Do you think you could throw this all day? I will be trying it on LOTW next week. The only problem may be if I actually hook a fish, where will the other lure end up.

    If you can't see the pic that well, it's a looped wire that holds two lures in balance. I'll try anything once.

    Have you tested it? Im guessing the wire is going to bend and the lures are going to pull together.

    you may also want to check the regulations to be sure that is legal. In Minnesota i believe that would qualify as two baits on one line making it illegal

    do you have an electric winch to retreive that with?

    That's what will happen. I tried the same thing last season.
    You'd need some seriously heavy wire (well, to be honest, a rod) to keep them apart.
    In hindsight, the free one would also be giving a wicked amount of leverage to any fish that hit one, could result in the other one ending up in a eye, gills, etc.

    I think you would need a piece of angle iron between the spreader to keep them from pulling together and becoming one tangled mess..

    Smart man, though the idea is certainly not forearm-friendly. :o

    Actually, regarding the "smart" part, I'm referring to the bait on the right. Metal blade with a painted blade in tandem ... not only does it create lots of contrast, which is important anytime regarding colors, but the thump is completely different from baits having two metal blades or two painted blades. I find it very effective.

    It has been tested and it works great. They come in side by side, but every once in a while they will come in one over the other. I used .062 wire and it doesn't bend at all. I hope there aren't any regs against it? I'm just worried the fish would get foul hooked by the other lure during a fight. Oh well, I will porbably throw it a couple times and put it away. I'm just having fun.

    Steve, I'm not so sure about being smart, but that is one of my favorite lures in that picture.

    You're gonna get arrested.

    This is not one line, one bait per fisherman.

    With the snaps, and detachability, you are throwing two baits.

    Depends where you are fishing, WI. allows 3 rods per angler, but I still don't think you are allowed more than 3 treble hooks on one bait.
