Snubber on a Wire Cable?

how would you attach a snubber to a 7/16 SS wire cable being used as an anchor line and as cable to a stabilizing paravane fish so as to relieve the tension on a drum winch? All discussions I've found assume a chain rode or rope. Also, I'm planning on using a stabilizing fish on just one side. Has anyone have any experience doing that?

Best stopper or snubber on wire rope is about 4 feet of chain with a line at the end. Shackle the chain to a cleat or eye, three or four half hitches on the wire rope, with the lay, clove hitch with the line at the end. Ease the wire and the chain stopper will hold it. Used to use this to stop wire rope when I was at sea. For the size of your wire I would use a small link chain.
