Hi Guys,
Here's a video I made making my first ever crankbait for bass. I was given some good tips and tricks from my friend in Japan so I figured I'd share it with you guys. I'm very happy with the result!

I love the hand made lures and have about 5 in my collection from Old Timers. I have none from today's world. I would love to have one and talk to you about putting one in the collection. Thanks for sharing your skills. I am impressed with all that spend that kind of time to build a custom bait.

Thanks mate, the wood is Pauwlonia. As I stated in the video you could use a wide variety of wood for making crankbaits and other diving lures.

Enjoyed the video, I love the fine detail you put on this bait. Ive heard balsa wood works good too. Ive painted lots of crankbaits but never hand carver one, maybe will sometime in the near future.

Most woods work well. Balsa is commonly used however the downside to using this wood is the fact that it is heavily dependent on the epoxy/urethane coating for its durability. Balsa is a very brittle wood.
