Hi Perro,

I have made some banana-shaped lures and would be glad to give you some advice. You can see a picture of some of them in the club gallery. I have not had very good luck getting banana plugs to run correctly but to be honest have not invested the time to experiment with them. Since you have not built any baits before I would suggest you first built a "minnow-type" lure as they are probably the easiest. Please refer to the following tutorials and feel free to write back for any questions you may have. Hope this helps.
