Bombshell Fishing Lures

Bombshell Turtle Hybrid Fishing Lure

A natural shape that both fresh and saltwater gamefish hit aggressively

DNA Driven to attack juvenile turtles

Your mind might say NO – Bass DNA says YES. For more than 35 years, underwater documentaries have proven that largemouth bass instinctively attack egg-robbing turtles during the bedding season. Now both fresh and saltwater catches worldwide on the Bombshell Turtle PROVE gamefish of all kinds naturally strike turtles year-around!

Nature’s Perfect Creature Lure – Driven by a fish’ DNA to Strike

. . . Your Missing Link to More & Bigger Fish

Why a turtle hybrid fishing lure? Throughout the history of evolution bass and even saltwater species have aggressively attacked JUVENILE TURTLES in the wild. Both fresh and saltwater gamefish 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 bass lure shape fills a missing link in the standard soft-plastic lure offering. 95% of the hits on this Bombshell® Turtle Hybrid Fishing Lure 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 bass fishing.

The Bombshell Turtle Hybrid Lure is available in 3-inch size, 6-count packs, in 10 color selections: #01 Black/Silver, #02 Black/Red, #04 Juvenile Green, #34 Cooter, #38 Chix Flix, #48 June Bug, #190 Slider, #232 Snapper, #A7 Softshell, #D9 Nite Glow, #G7 Watermelon Fire and #J2 Green Pumpkin.

Mahi-mahi found to have eaten at least 18 small juvenile turtles
Reports from all over the world have come in on gamefish (both fresh and saltwater). They were found to have made juvenile turtles a major part of their diet. Nothing better illustrates this than this mahi-mahi with at least 18 small turtles ingested.

Castalia Outdoors Says:

We started using these baits here in Michigan as soon as we received our first pack in July. Wow!!! Great Lakes bass had never seen anything like this! Smallmouth bass in Lake St Clair were all over them. Largemouth bass on the inland lakes couldn’t resist the slow taunting twitch of four turtle legs floating past them. Why didn’t anybody think of this lure before now!!!

bombshell turtle catch
Caught several this size on the blue bombshell turtle, had one break off in the ten plus range. Could not turn the fish in the cover that I was fishing. Did get to see the fish. The bombshell works! Thanks for the advance shipment. I can’t wait until next weeks tournament.

UPDATE: 3rd place finish this weekend. I was able to get three of my five fish on the turtle (Junebug). Not bad considering I lost 2nd due to a dead fish penalty and was only .25 pounds from the 1st place spot. Bad thing is when you are on fish everyone ends up on top of you fishing.

Next month, Lake Yale in Lake County. Should be another good turtle bite in deep water brush piles.

Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so take a look at this:

Turtle in Bass Turtle in Bass

and here’s the story:
The bass Louie’s holding slammed his Pop R. After the battle, and the fish was landed, we were taking the pic & Louie noticed something moving in the Bass’s throat. This Mud turtle actually crawled out of the fish’s stomach. The fish swallowed it again and it came crawling back out again. That’s when we decided to take the needlenosed pliers and help the little guy out. We pulled him to safety. Both bass and turtle were released unharmed. There’s the proof & we can’t wait to get our hands on some of those Bombshells and head to the river.
