KcDano, What are the other 2?

All 4 of these baits are the same brand.

All were made in the 70's and early 80's

The same brand of baits are still being made today in the same way.

Guess the lure. I will post another photo for a hint if it is not guessed soon.

The first bait pictured is a Smith & Yelton Craw Pappy and is a fine lure. The bass like it, the initial offering was hand carved and worked extremely well. After some time they were manufactured on a lathe and didn't work as good as the hand carved examples. I was fortunate enough to come in contact with one of creator's fishing buddies which had many different examples and did swap for a couple of the baits. I have owned 1 of the hand caved models and had great luck with it, unfortunately, I lost it to the depths of a southern Missouri stream. I own 2 models that were made on the lathe but the are not as productive as the originals. I dare not fish with them anymore.

The second bait pictured is a Glitter Gitter a unique offering insomuch that it is liquid filled with glitter. Manufactured by Metro Specialty in KCMO.

Ahh, I missed that Palmetto had already gotten the Palsa Minnow. I'll post a lure as soon as I get home from work...

PB those are Gulp cranks made by Jim Harter in South Carolina. Those particular baits have accounted for numerous Tourney wins for me over the past 10 years

LaPala, that's an Evergreen Seadrive, but that wasn't exactly fair because I could just make out the name of the lure on the top. If you've got another one that would be cool, or I can look around for one.

Okay, here we go. This is a Japanese lure, so manufacturer and model (no need for color). Also, to give a hint, but hopefully not too big of one, this manufacturer is not well known in the US.

If no one gets it quickly, I will add pics of different colors that may help someone identify the manufacturer.
