Default Lure Modification

I was able to pick up three second hand lures for Musky and Stripers. Two of the Lures are Rapala Cd-14 Mag, countdown/deep diving plugs. I would like to modify them to run shallow. I like the weight that the lure have for longer casts. Is there a way that I can shorten and bend the metal lip to run shallow? Also, I received a 1979 Swim Wizz 8" jointed plug. Should I fish it or save it for display in the future man cave? Thanks for the advice. Cali Style, Jeremiah

The one with the big lip (Rapala) can be filed down.

Any lip on those finnish style swimmers can be filed down... makes them run shallower.
