First crankibait attempt

First crankibait attempt

My first attempt at making a crankbait. I was trying to imitate a B1. I just made this one out of scrap pine I had lying around until I get the hang of it, then I will probably buy some balsa. Paint job is pretty basic. I just hope I can get as good as some of you guys on here!

    That's a whole lot better than my first. Excellent job!

    Never get rid of it. Save it to look back on 20 years from now.

    Nice looking crank for your first try!!

    I am with Gene on saving it. I made my very first bait for my daughter. I told her to hang on to it and pass it on to her kids one day. Should make a great memory for her down the road!!

    My first wouldn't even swim.
    Yours looks great.
    Thanks for the encouragement fellas! This is an addicting hobby. I have to say, I almost enjoy making lures as much as fishing them. Fishing is my passion, but this is giving it a run for it's money. Maybe its a getting older thing...I don't know.
    Sweet little crank. The smaller baits might be easier to get to swim right, but they're harder to build (for me at least) and you've done a really good job.
