Was working down in S.E. Ohio(Belpre) and found this little mom and pop bait store, had to stop and take a look see.

Abu's, 5000,6000 and 7000 plus Rockets.

Musky baits from some of the West Virginia lure makers.
Well, I'm not going in a mom & pop shop without parting with a few Hamilton's.

Picked up another Swim Whizz and a lure from West Virginia craftsman Gene Richardson he calls it Bubba. Never heard anything about Bubba or Gene Richardson. Just went on looks and took a chance on ol' Bubba.

Back at home in N.W Ohio, time for a test run for Bubba.

Bubba is a cedar Crankbait
On the cast and crank it has a sweet rolling wobble action. on the pull- stop and crank - stop it has the rolling wobble and a rocking action from front to back at the stop, pretty neat.
Bubba can be twitched on top for the dive and rise and it runs 2-4 f.t. deep on the crank.

Think I'll be pitching Bub over the emerging weed beds on Clear Fork in the very near future.

Took a chance on a unknown (to me) bait maker and got lucky, I think. I'll see what the Muskies think of Bub. Me, I like him.
