The story of the "Suick Muskie Thriller"

Post by diemai » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:21 am

G'day , people ,

This distinctive muskie lure might be rather unknown in Australia , but in the USA it is legend , and during past years in Europe it has also won some fans amongst the local pike fishermen's fraternity .

Anyway , just came across this site being into a Google search for a "Hawg Wobbler" , that I had seen in an older English video and wanted to find out more about .

I just find this to be a very interesting story and nice read about the evolution of a famous lure , so I've thought to share it in here as well , ........also some more reviews of American muskie lures to be found on that site , .....if interested , just have a look around .

@ Charged

I have one or two medium sized ones as well , .........also thinking , that they required some tuning , .......gotta put some weight in the belly to have them run a bit deeper , as their timber material is pretty buoyant , ....but that little tail spin is a very good idea as well , ......thanks for sharing !

Cheers , Dieter howdy
