crankbait construction

2 posts in this topic

I want to make some wooden crankbaits, stick baits, ect. can I use any kind of wood. I have all kinds of scrap wood from Pine, Poplar, Oak and walnut. And also where would your weight placement be on some of these baits.

thanks for all the help you can give me!

I started off with surface lures to get the hang of things, without having to worry to much about weighting, and lip placement (Plus smaller prop lures work great from my dock). Hand shaping (carving and sanding) is a lot easier on softer wood. Oak is tough to carve, Pine was alright, but I have been using cedar lately.

Try the search up to for some more details on preferred wood types, and weighting.
