The bottom one is an Original Rapala Handmade bait. 1960's

How about a "Kasin Tehty Palsa Uisten" Palsa Minnow Made in Finland.

Jason, it is not a Rebel. Lure was made in Finland and constructed with balsa

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.

KC Dano, Is the third a Palsa Minnow?
Palmetto, Those look like Gulp cranks to me...

You got it right, Clemmy. Although Palmetto beat you to it!

You are correct sir. You are up.
I thought I answered this 3 hrs ago but I must not have hit the post reply button.

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

My pic files are too big to add in. Someone else want to post a pic to keep it going?

I'll do it, this is quite a modern and unique design on this lure. Manufacturer and Name of lure please.

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
