Bombshell Turtle Fishing Lure
For Fresh & Saltwater Fishing . . .
Your Missing Link to More & Bigger Fish!™
Why a turtle fishing lure? Throughout the history of evolution bass and even saltwater species have aggressively attacked JUVENILE TURTLES in the wild. Both fresh and saltwater Game fish despise egg-raiding turtles, attacking them aggressively year-around.
Aggressiveness by bass toward JUVENILE TURTLES has been well documented for more than 35 years in films featuring largemouth bass behavior – bringing many to ask, what took so long to make the lure?
IT’S IN THE BASS’ DNA TO STRIKE JUVENILE TURTLES TO DEFEND ITS YOUNG AGAINST THESE EGG-ROBBING CREATURES
Not just during the bass bedding season, bass continue to eat juvenile turtles year-around to naturally ensure survival of the bass species. Female turtles produce hundreds, if not thousands of hatchlings every year – ever wonder why our lakes are not just overwhelmed by millions of turtles? Sure, birds, snakes, racoons and other animals take their share, but bass regularly eat them to equal natures balance and as a protein source. JUVENILE TURTLES have soft shells and are easily digested whole by bass as evidenced by anglers who have found many a juvenile turtle in the gullet or stomach of their catch – saltwater gamefish target and feed on new hatchling just off the sandy shore of coastlines during turtle hatching season.
Simply put – this new lure shape fills a missing link in the standard soft-plastic lure offering. 95% of the hits on this Bombshell® Turtle is on the drop, so a tantalizing slow descent with its automatic leg action will draw more strikes. It can be rigged like many other soft plastic lures, “pop” the lure for multiple descents during the retrieve near underwater structure to lure big fish out of cover – let the lure do the work, pop and retrieve it s-l-o-w.
There is simply nothing like the Bombshell Turtle lure and it will prove to be your missing link to more and bigger fish.

Bombshell Crab for in-shore saltwater
The Truly “Fishable” Crab
Imitating an in-shore saltwater crab with live-action claws, the Bombshell® Crab can be easily texas-rigged like a traditional soft plastic lure, allowing you to fish it more naturally through vegetation, holes and around structure with a lively presentation.
Use a forward-weighted jig or Texas-rig with a worm hook with the hook point up through the hook channel for weedless fishing. The concave belly allows it to be skipped under docks or under mangroves to reach hidden fish. The hook channel allows weedless hook rigging and easier hooks-sets through the minimized body thickness. When rigged, the crab’s live-action claws will rise in a defensive position – much like a live crab, creating a natural presentation and producing maximum strike responses from game fish such as Redfish, Snook, trout and more.
The Bombshell Crab lure is available in 3-inch size, 6-count packs, in 8 color selections: 04-Juvenile Green, 18-Cooter, 19-Electric Blue, 38-Chix Flix, 51-Red Silver Flake, D1-Smoke Gold Flake, D9-Nite Glow and P2-Rootbeer Gold Flake.
