Twenty years, give or take. That’s how long I’ve been in the bassin’ biz (I’m not that old!). And I always think I’ve seen it all…until I see something else. The latest installment in this what-will-they-think-of-next bassin’ odyssey is
the Bombshell Turtle.
Yep, turtle. As in, reptile in a box.
Oh â€“ it makes sense. So much sense that you just might buy some.
But it’s still sorta…unbelievable, ain’t it?
You may ask, Why a turtle bait? Lucky for you, the makers of the Bombshell Turtle, Castalia Outdoors, have an answer:
Throughout the history of evolution bass and even saltwater species have aggressively attacked turtles in the wild. Game fish despise egg-raiding turtles in both fresh and salt water and attack juvenile turtles aggressively year-round.
Aggressiveness by largemouth bass toward juvenile turtles has been well documented for more than 35 years in films featuring largemouth bass behavior â€“ bringing many to ask, what took so long to make the lure? [Where are these “many”?!]
Simply put â€“ this patented new lure shape fills a missing link in the standard soft-plastic lure offering.
Okay. Question is, does that make you want to try one?
Yes! I’m that friggin’ insane that I do want to try one. Because part of me believes that there’s always a bass dumb enough to bite what I have on. Could be a dang coconut shell with a treble on it, and some pea-brained mossyback’ll eat it.
That’s another difference between me and KVD. He’s hunting for any bass, but I’m looking only for the dumbest ones.
