How about a giant version of the Heddon Torpedo. That was my favorite lure for smallmouth until the Whopper Plopper came out. It should be pretty easy to make out of wood as long as you can find a big prop for the back.

Whopper plopper 110 and 130 are great for stripers.  Berkley Choppos too.  I have a 190 size but haven't caught anything yet.

There was a plug maker years ago named Rockfish that made these in 5, 6 and 7"s:howdy:

These were Poe's . I'd have to measure them I think the smaller one's 31/2 inch . The other one 41/2 maybe 5 . I've had my best luck on the small one on a heart attack retrieve .

That's intriguing.  Been looking for something like this for a while.  Ideally something in 1oz range and another in 2-3oz range.  Surprised that more lure makers haven't made something like this for SW.

 

I have a  couple.  I believe he just stopped building.  Probably could get one on WTB here.  I use it for freshwater.

Poe also made huge spooks years ago. Bigger than Tattoo's spooks. I called them torpedo's.:howdy:

I don't have much for FW wood.  Pretty much all plastic.  But if you're building @bassmaster I'm still on the jitterbug wagon.

The Lemires is called a Sea-Fly, work well...

So what wood lures you guys use on freshwater that's wood

M.S. Slammers in 9” flat out catch and they’re all wood. First 2 pics are my buddy. 
 

Japanese wood lure maker - Banderuola - absolutely killed for this spring - easily got 75 bass on this 7” wood trout bait.
