 Yup they all swim! ,Some of the longer ones have a great walk the dog action,On some of the crank baits I tried  lip weighting  and found it give's the bait an intense  tail wiggling  vibration that can be felt up the rod. When I started building  I simply made  largemouth bass plugs that were bigger, I never checked out what striper plugs should truly look like. After going on this site i have a far better understanding of what I need to do to make a better plug. Their are some amazing talents here that I can learn from. All the turned plugs are western red cedar,the others are made from mahogany,cherry, birch, rock maple, and a few from red cedar and weight's go from about 2ozs+ to 3.5ozs+/-

I'm curious about the nut/bolt in the lips?



I tried it as i had no lead to make weights, when i threw them it gave the bait a great wobble and  vibration so i kept them in place
