The top one might be a Pflueger Jointed Pal-o-mine, 2nd down may be a Paw Paw or knockoff, 3rd down looks like a Pflueger Pal-o-mine

Bottom spook looks like a Baracuda ...flaptail value is 20$-25$

Just did some digging and this might be an interesting plug to collectors

Carved and painted eye Some Barracuda lures have been found with a pressed eye or carved eye but it is believed they were only made for a short time

No front propeller - can't find one like this anywhere

That red bead between the rear prop and the hook - can't find one with that anywhere either

I recently bought a lure book and i think this is a paw paw or a shakesphere after seeing similar lures in the book

Closest Paw Paw I could find is the Shiner, which has a front prop, no red bead on the tail and no carved eyes

Same goes for everything under the name Barracuda

 

This has no front prop, carved eyes and that red bead in front of the tail prop

So according to a big collector it's a Barracuda brand Florida Shad

However i still can;t find any that are rear prop only and with that red bead spacer. 

All the ones I've found are front and back prop and not one with the bead
