I have a crank bait I made early on that has a really nice action, a deep thumping movement. I’m duplicating it with different paint patterns. This one is a sort crayfish pattern… sort of.
Made of cedar. Everything is handmade except the hooks.

This is a video of the entire process.

Agree! the painting is superb!

What kind of lead dispenser are using?
Looks very useful!

Thanx. Yes the lead pot works great. From Amazon.

You’re getting better making these lures.

I might have missed it, but have you caught a fish yet with one of them?

The crawfish would probably work well in a river.

The first fish I caught with one of them I then lost in a tree… don’t ask. I’ve poste the remake of it here someplace. And yes, I’ve been fishing with them exclusively to see what they’ll do. Bass, pike. Some of them work good.
