   Good morning.

  This is my first attempt to post on this site,hope it works.All of these are my take on crankbait type lures.I wanted to come up with something different ,that would be easier to shape.All are made of balsa wood.

  The smallest one here is a # 10 Mustad 33903 hook.I've got some # 12s in the works.Hope you like these.

I was just showing off my Bitsy Minnow stowage box by Plano....Just trial and error and this one is perfect for these baits since I have so many colors and you never carry just one of a particular color.....At least I don't....you're sure to lose it some how if you only take one..........
