Wood/ Crank Baits

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever tried treated wood posts ... cleaning out my garage I found several different types of wood, one was regular pine , the other was treated pine and two were redwood....I also found a thick slab of yellow popular or yellow pine[12in by 24]

Are any of these woods really a good wood to build with

Thanks

I've built several baits out of redwood and yellow pine. There is a fellow in town that uses poplar for his baits.

All the untreated lumber should be ok. I have used pine. It works well but the grain is a pain to hide. Also used popular and it's grain is not so hard to hide but found the wood harder to carve. But both made usable lures.

Until a few years ago, wood was treated with arsenic to deter insects. You don't wanna use it to make lures.
