How to Best Fish aND RIG A Turtle Lure

RIGGING TEXAS-STYLE - (1.) Insert the hook's point into the tip of the head. (2.) Push the tip of the hook through the bottom of the lure at about 1/8- to 1/4-inch back from the tip of the head, then slide hook through the plastic until the hook's eye is located at the tip of the head, twist hook point upwards toward the belly of the lure. (3) Locate the proper distance to insert the hook point into the belly, allowing the lure to be taught between the hook's eye and hook point - this will provide the proper swim action. Embed the hook's point into the soft body, nearly exposed at the top of the lure, providing weedless retrieve and easy hook-sets.

Sure, you can power "buzz" the turtle top-water or just below the surface to draw reactionary strikes much like you can with many other lures. But the awkward, side-to-side slow sinking action of the Bombshell Turtle lure makes it mimic a real juvenile turtle.

The Bombshell Turtle lure is best used in a finesse bait presentation, an ultra-slow, wiggle-wiggle body-shifting drop in and around vegetation that is irresistible to big bass. It is an evolutionary-driven desire for bass to strike turtles both as species protection (turtles eat bass eggs during the bedding process) and as an easy meal throughout the year. Live turtles are not nature's best swimmers - the Bombshell Turtle has the perfect juvenile size, backward facing legs (like a real turtle) and natural awkward drop on a finesse-weighted or hook-only rig to fool bass every time!
