Help identifying these vintage crankbaits ?

Recommended Posts

So it’s cold in Michigan and I had some time to go through some of my flea market and garage sale finds. I’m trying to identify the brand and model of the 4 Crankbaits at the top of the picture ? They look like keepers but hopefully someone with a broader knowledge may know ?

Top 4 I believe are Rebel Baitfish Series line of baits in bass and perch @whitwolf

Next is a Rebel Deep R of some sort...looks bigger than the Wee R

Last 3 are Natural Ikes by Lazy Ike (Tom Seward design)

The 3 on the bottom of the first picture are Lazy Ike . (don't remember the model name, but I have a 1/2 dozen of them) These were some kind of hard foam- not plastic. The one directly above those 3 looks like Rebel "R", and the bass look like Bagley's fingerling series, except for the eyes.    Maybe....

I type too slow, there were no responses when I started..😟

The Rainbow trout bait( fourth bait down )is a deep maxi r or deep mini r. It might say deep r.

Team9nine and Scaleface are right. Rebels, the fifth one down is a Rebel Deep Wee-R. The three below it are Natural Ikes. I have caught fish on the Rebel Wee-R's but I have never caught a fish on one of the Natural Ikes (because I have hardly ever used them probably). I have never used or owned those other baitfish Rebels. They look cool, like plastic versions of the Bagley fingerling series.
