Default Holes for Witchcraft eyes?

I just mail ordered 1/2" and 5/8" witchcraft eyes, but I'm ready to seal some plugs now. Correctly if I am wrong, but I believe the diameter hole is the same as the stated eye size. However, I don't know how deep to make each eye socket. What are the typical depths? I'd like to make the holes before sealing.

IT depends on what look you want. If you want the eyes to buldge a little just make them 1/16" if you want the eyes to be even with the outside edge of the lure than 3/16" deep or so depending on the eye.

Thanks for the info Armand. I'm drilling and sealing tomorrow.
