Tupelo is an excellent wood for baits. It has been used forever as one of the top choices for carving duck decoys and other carvings. It has very little, if any grain, if it came from the butt of the tree. Tupelo holds detail very good and is very easy to work with. After carving your lures, seal and paint as with balsa. Good luck, Joe
