Homemade lures that have worked.

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to post a few lures I made that have produced fish for me in the last few weeks. The tail on the green crankbait gives it very unique action I have found.

There is nothing more rewarding than creating a lure out of a piece of wood and catching fish with them. I'm having trouble posting pictures, so I'm unable to show my crankbaits. Don't stop.....keep creating!!

I wish I still had the first lure I made. It was nothing more than an old spoon that I hammered on and drilled 2 holes in, added some split rings and a treble hook and I had a casting spoon. Caught trout, catfish, pickerel, pike, bass and even snagged a sunfish or two.

Can't agree more. I will never forget the feeling of catching my first quality fish on a bait that I made from scratch materials. All these years later, the novelty still hasn't wore off.

Poplar. Not sure if that is the best choice but it has worked for me.
