These are a fantastic lure I managed to keep a pair of them. I'll snap a photo and post it shortly. As far as fishing went I prefer the Big Digs myself.

@ ropes.basstard

Nice little dudes ! I have similar homemade lures like that "Bandit" , but a tad shorter , with only one belly treble and a trailing small spinnerblade , ......nice action !

Are these also made of a certain kind of soft material ?

I once had a "Burke's" popper in my hands , that one was made of a kinda hard rubber stuff !

Dieter, I love these soft lures. I've found that when fish strike they seem to hold on a bit longer. Only thing is I'm now too scared I'll lose them. I checked out the other post as well, I have not seen one of those wide mouth surface crawlers for years. I wish someone would re-release some of these models. They work, and very well.

@ ropes.basstard

Maybe that was even the manufacturer's initial intention to make them out of this material ??? ????
