Default Wooden Fishing Lures

My brothers and I would always give Rapala or Bagley fishing lures as gifts since we were kids so I have a large selection. Now days they are getting expensive. Bagley Smoo is a banana bait/ crankbait hybrid. It dives deep enough to catch suspended white bass although the one I have left is really to big for that job. With all the spare parts and lures past their prime that I have amassed I have decided to recycle them into new creations. Smoos and other Bagley lures have been discontinued but I figure I can make my own. They are available on ebay but they cost a bundle. This way I can customize them for particular needs. Plastic crankbaits just dont intetest me. Wood only. I have some antiques also. I have made copies of Lazy Ike banana bait lures. The original I copied was an oldie. There are also some ancient wooden topwater plugs but I dont use those now. I only admire them. Fishing is expensive today.

Some of those old wooden plugs can be worth a lot of money. I have a few Jitterbugs from the late 50ís or early 60ís that are selling for an amazing amount of money. Since I got these from my grandfather I will never sell them. I also have several Muskie plugs from the 40ís that I consider works of art more than fishing tackle.

Wooden fishing decoys for musky ice spearing are collectable too. I dont have any of those but they are cool. They dont make lures like they used to for sure. I like the old ones with glass eyes. The ones I have came from my grandfather also. The fishing decoys are folk-art.
