Introduction: Is there anything more retro in bass fishing than the hand crafted wooden bait? Ok, maybe the grape colored plastic worm, but a plastic worm doesn't speak to ingenuity and craftsmanship. PH Custom lures, distributed under the Optimum Baits umbrella, is based out of Indiana and they are
the makers of good old fashioned wooden lures.
Have you heard of the Ploppin-P?
Ploppin-P: Word on the dock is a certain, yet to be aired tournament was won on a certain new bait that's already grown difficult to acquire. That bait? It's the Ploppin-P - a topwater plopping bait featuring a hand carved, wood body.
It's a topwater bait with a metal bladed ploppin tail.
Because it's metal, you can bend it to suit your needs.
The Ploppin-P looks just like a hand made crankbait only it has no bill and comes with a metal tail that's designed to plop in the water. Because the tail is metal, it gives angler the opportunity to custom tune that plop for more or less splash depending on the mood of the fish.
Hardware is VMC.
Each bait is hand made in Indiana.
