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!
