Unidentified lures

Hello. I joined on December 26, 2020. I have been collecting vintage lures for about 3 years and have approximately 100 lures; however, despite my best research, I cannot identify these eight lures. Can anyone shed some light on who manufactured these lures?

The metal spoon indicates that a patent is pending, but has no other markings. I took this lure to the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in Hayward, Wisconsin, but they had never seen one and had no idea what it was.

The plastic lure with the paddle tail and holographic eyes has  no markings.

The mouse lure also has no markings.

The flocked lure resembles a Heddon Crazy Crawler, but has enough variation to have convinced me that it is not a Crazy Crawler.

The lure with the metal diving bill was first thought to be a Woods Deep-R-Doodle, but it too has too many variations from that lure.

The red and white wood lure has no markings. The hooks are hung from eyes connected to a through wire.

The rubber frog has no identifying markings.

The wood lure has a very large concave mouth painted red and glass eyes.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
