Need help identifying several lures

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a bunch of lures from a tournament fisherman. Several do not have names on them so I am curious what they are. 

 

A few have an x tm on the belly which I am unsure which company it is. My guess was Excalibur but I cant find any excalibur lures with that logo or that match the styling.

The "XTM" baits are the H2O Express store brand from Academy. Their whole lineup is solid.

 

It's hard to tell without a closer look at a couple of them, but here's my best guesses.

 

Strike King Series 1 

???                                                    Strike King Series 5 or 4                                Strike King KVD jerkbait 300 size

Strike King KVD HC Flat Side 1.5          Bomber Fat Free Shad                                   Rapala Husky Jerk size 12 or 14

Strike King Lucky Shad                  Could be a variety of baits, it's a 1.5 size though    110+1 jerkbait, maybe Megabass

Strike King KVD jerkbait 300 size          Could be another H2O bait?                           H2O deep jerbait

@Bluebasser86,

Not to get off topic, but in several forums you've stated you don't like using crankbaits.  How is it that you can identify all these lures?  Do you have a bunch but just don't like using them, do you collect them, or what?

Several are jerkbaits, I love jerkbaits. They're mostly pretty popular lures, so that helps too. I didn't always dislike crankbaits, I use to carry 4 boxes of them in my boat, but zebra mussels and fishing pressure has made them mostly useless. I'm still a study of the sport, even the parts I don't really like.

Thank you, that helps a bunch. I had a hard time getting pictures to upload, posted them straight from phone on mobile site, but it was hard to get under the max size. 

guess photo bucket would be easier.

Photobucket no longer allows post to 3rd party sites unless you're paying their fees. I stopped using them completely because of that.

It's likely that they have a very low bandwidth cap on linked photos.  I suspect that picture will be gone once the page is viewed by more people.
