Laz,
Hawkeye Lures were made by Dennis Hawkins, who lives in the sunshine coast hinterland. He at one time had a tackle shop in Beerburrum, but used to sell his lures at various flea markets as well. He had to change his name when Gus Veness took him to legal action over the similarity in name to their 'HAWK' branded product. He changed his name to Lizard Lures and some are still kicking around in bargain bins as are some of the older 'Hawkeye' branded ones. He had several models including Fighting Whiting, Maniac (in a few sizes), Noddy and Raw Prawn.

The Raw Prawn sort of looked like a Rio's but made of urethane foam and painted.

Cheers Brad

They were distribution agents Laurie. They gave em the heave ho about 8-10 years ago (I think) when they went big time with Surecatch.
I used to sell some stuff to Dennis in his shop 3 years ago, & he was still making them. DOn't see em in the shops too much, prob cos he sells at a number of fleamarkets...you know how precious some of those shop owners can get lol

These are my examples at the present time.
Never fished with them, grabbed 'em because they were a discontinued line.
