here are two top waters (my first ever) and a crank bait done in my favorite booberry color. Alsoanother jerk and a crank done in my pyscho color, and finally my first attempt at a photo lure with lots of thanks to riverman for his help. This baby has wicked action. Hope you like them.

Some gorgeous baits Robert, great job!! How did you get your inset eyes to fit so good? Mine always end up a bit rough.

Those should bring in alot of muskies! Very nice. The fish won't stand a chance against that jointed one. How much do the topwaters wiegh? What type of wood did you use?

Hi guys thanks for the complements.
As yolu can tell my message was supose to say MORE baits
I really appreciate your complements, Considering that I have only been doing this for several (6) months!!
I would also like to say that I appreciate your workmanship, I hope that one day I will be as good as you guys!
As for the baits riverman using the three dimentional eyes, top water baits are made out of maple, I do not have an exact weight but they are very light. Yes, on some baits I do use the plastic eyes with the rattling eye (beggers can't be choosers). LOL
I am working on more photo lures, as well as some more jointed boo berry types. Will post pictures when they are complete!
PS> Thanks to Caralina (SP) Chip, Are Brush, Riverman, Out to Lunge, and Skeeter, for all their help and advice. Rob.
