About Winn Lures

For as long as I can remember, I've loved to fish. It didn't matter if it was a creek, pond, river, or ocean. If it held fish, I'd have a line in the water. The thrill of landing a fish, no matter how big, has always been the same. As I got older, I progressed from bait fishing to lure fishing and also developed a passion for woodworking. One day it occurred to me that I could combine my two passions so I began to tinker around with making wooden lures on my lathe. After many years of trial and error, I finally developed a system for making natural wooden lures that are not only attractive but that catch fish as well. Since that first batch of lures, I've spent countless hours refining my craft, as well as developing and testing new lure designs. I'm pleased to offer a line of beautiful natural wooden lures that have proven to catch fish.

All Winn lures are topwater baits (floating baits) but there are a variety of styles to choose from including poppers, prop baits, stick baits and jitterbugs. Each lure is hand turned on a lathe from carefully selected wood stock. A basic pattern is used for each lure, but since they are hand turned, no two lures are exactly the same. No artificial stain or paint is used on the lures so wood blanks are chosen that have unique color and grain patterns. Once turned, each lure is signed for authenticity, recessed 3D eyes are added, and they are coated with a layer of durable epoxy. Each lure design has been field tested to ensure it produces the desired action in the water.

Hope you have as much fun fishing with Winn lures as I have making them! Tight lines!
