I'm pretty sure the lure on bottom left was made by Smithwick....it had blinking eyes but I can't find any info on it...I remember buying it back in the 70's...had to buy a watch battery to make the eyes blink on and off....lived in Greenville,Ms. at the time and typically the mosquitos on those oxbow lakes would get so bad at night you cvouldn't fish for swatting mosquitos...when I bought this lure,I didn't consider that because I was sure it was gonna be a fish every cast.....long story short,two hours of constant mosquito bites and zero fish bites were enough to earn this bait a permanent resting place in my tackle box....actually I tried it a few more times over the years before I gave up on it...I think it's kinda rare because there weren't many people besides me dumb enough to buy one...

Top left, I've got a couple and they were called a Pico Perch, if they're the same.

just found out the two on top left are aquasonics….got a tunnel or sound chamber that allows water to flow through the bait when retrieving it...
