ICAST COUNTDOWN VIDEO: Castalia Bombshell Turtle Hybrid

Article Media Click images to enlarge +

New from Castalia Outdoors: The Bombshell Turtle Hybrid will make its bow at ICAST.

The all-new Bombshell® Turtle Hybrid from Castalia Outdoors features high-action legs and a slender body profile for casting and swimming.

It also 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. Anglers can also 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.

For more than 35 years, underwater documentaries have proved that largemouth bass instinctively attack egg-robbing turtles during the bedding season. Now both fresh and saltwater catches worldwide on the Bombshell Turtle prove gamefish of all kinds naturally strike juvenile turtles throughout the year.

Castalia says: “Simply put, this new bass lure shape fills a missing link in the standard soft-plastic lure offering. Most of the hits on this Bombshell Turtle Hybrid fishing lure are on the drop, so a tantalizing slow descent with its automatic leg action will draw more strikes. 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 very slowly.”

The Bombshell Turtle Hybrid Lure measures three-inches and comes in 12 colour selections.
