These are the largest I’ve made at 8” in length using 8 ounce weights for the head. I had to give them a CA finish. They will head across the country tomorrow.

What are they for? The grain and finish are what caught my eye. I made a 3 inch crankbait with a piece of pine, piece of single edge razor blade for the diving bill, hook eye in the head and two for the treble hooks. Colored with a red Sharpie. I actually caught fish with it. It was either good or fish weren't too smart.

They are trolling lures. Tie them on a heavy 80+ pound rig and troll it behind the boat. A 40# bluefin ate one for a lucky angler, not me and not my plug, but they work.

To date I have made and sold over 500 of these in sizes from 4”-8” and shipped from inside the USA to Europe, Australia and even Russia. Life has been good and my shop has many tools and safety equipment due to these lures.
