ICAST launch: Castalia announces Bombshell Turtle for largemouth bass
Castalia has quite literally announced a bombshell. The US company’s latest new product is the Bombshell Turtle, a new lure that it believes fills a missing link in the standard soft plastic offerings currently available.
Castalia took its inspiration for the lure from the fact that largemouth bass and other species have long been known to attack turtles in the wild. The makers explain that 95% of hits on the patented Bombshell Turtle come on the drop, which makes its tantalising slow descent and automatic leg action particularly effective.
The lure is best used with a weighted jig hook or 1/16oz to 1/8oz weight pegged at the turtle’s head and a 3/0 worm hook Texas-rigged. A ‘pop’ and slow retrieve action is recommended to lure fish out of cover.
The three-inch lure is available in six-piece packs and in eight colours.
