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: Good reports of success, casting the lure on top of Sargassum and allowing the lure to drop off the edge and slowly descending below the cover for aggressive saltwater strikes!
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 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.
The Hybrid Bombshell Turtle Lure has an elongated shell that enables bullet-like casting and a slender body profile to allow better swimming through vegetation. This design also makes it easier for anglers to set the hook more efficiently. The elongated shell and claw-like legs can also imitate a crab profile. The legs are designed for maximum action during a weighted retrieve. Or let it descend horizontally with a slow “do-nothing” finesse action using little or no weight so that it mimics a turtle’s natural fall.
