You can these from several suppliers, I believe Barlow's and stamina both have them as well as Jann's netcraft. You would also be surprised what you find by searching for "lure blanks" or "lure bodies" on ebay. Hope it helps, JIM

Moore's Lures has some, rather pricy though.
What type and how many you looking for?
You can make your own. There are several tutorials on the subject
and the guys on this board will answer all your questions.

cooley been making my own wood bodies for a while. I am getting a big demand for my baits and I want to speed up the process. I have never made plastic lures and frankly don't want the trouble of starting some thing else I just want to buy the bodies and be done with it. I want Pine for the cranks and top water and oak for the jerk baits

You can try Zelazoski Wood Products. On the 'net at www.zelazoskiwoodproducts.com

I had Zelazoski make some wood blanks for me. You have to come up with the design, then they charge you a set up fee to make the pattern. My cost was $75.00 to have that done. The good thing is that I now own the design and they will never make another one that looks like it for anybody else but me. It's a little expensive up front, but I can't make them at home. It cost me $1.99 each for 100 lure bodies that I had made out of both maple and pine.
The good news is I now have my own musky lures and I am catching fish on them.

What type of lure is it ? Can we see one ? I am just wondering if its a lathe turned blank of more of a unusal shape .

It is lathe turned. I don't want to give away too much info because after testing this summer I plan on selling them next year.
