Wire Bait Size Chart

To get the right movement from a wire bait, all of the components need to
be carefully balanced. Selecting a blade that is too big for the lure, or
a split ring that is too small, will cause erratic motion that will seriously
degrade the effectiveness of your tackle. Use the chart below for some general
guidelines on selecting the right size tackle component for the job.
