An all NEW category for soft-plastics, driven by fish' DNA to trigger strikes. Throughout the history of evolution bass and even saltwater species have aggressively attacked JUVENILE TURTLES in the wild.
The truly "fishable" crab that can be easily texas-rigged like a traditional soft plastic lure, allowing you to fish it more naturally through vegetation, sand holes and around structure with a lively presentation.
Is it intentional targeting; some ill-willed adversarial relationship manifested through lethal force? Or is it classic opportunism – a momentary decision to get while the gettin’s good? Definitive answers as to when and why bass and other predators eat young turtles have long remained elusive, yet throughout the years the tackle industry has seen several attempts to mimic the baby amphibians. From the moldings of yesteryear, to the modern Bombshell Turtle, amphibian imposters are no accident; no random pondering.
In visiting with some of my saltwater angling friends it appears that marine critters like baby turtles too. There are plenty of antidotes and scientific information that suggest marine turtles are just another food source. In this case it appears to be more of a predator/prey situation. When the baby sea turtles hatch and return to the ocean the predator fish, being opportunistic feeders, don’t mind slurping them up.
