I would like to know why so many crankbait eyes are

painted on the top front of the head?? When all the baitfish

I see have eyes on the side of the head.

I've wondered about that before, too. Here's what I decided: So the fisherman can see the lure better.

Old wooden Len Hartman musky plugs float when resting, with the butt of the plug out of the water. The lips are galvanized steel and are heavy. Anyway, there's a "target" painted on the top of the lure, just in front of the butt. This makes it easier to see where the lure was cast in low light situations.

Think a lot of it has to do with the bagley baits. Makes sense to have them on the sides. Don't think it really matters as long as they are on there.
