If you’re looking to buy one of the best crankbaits for bass fishing, look no further than the Bomber Model A crankbait. The company has been making crankbaits for decades, there colors are highly attractive to both largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. And no matter what depth you’re fishing in, Bomber makes a crankbait for both shallow and deep areas of the lake. I’m a fan of their deep diving Bomber Model 8A crankbait, this fishing where always puts bass in my boat. Come summer in Lake St. Clair when bass go deeper in the lake, it can be hard locating them. That’s when you get a try deep diving crankbaits with a longer lip, the Bomber Model 8A crankbait is perfect for this occasion.
And talk about longevity, these plastic lures are very resilient to a fish’s teeth and bouncing off structure. I still have Bomber crankbaits from 20 years ago. I’ve always been a fan of the perch color, paint scheme such as the fire tiger and brown chartreuse have always worked well for me. And if the bass aren’t biting on those colors, I will switch to colors such as the tennessee had or foxy shad which has more of a minnow silvery color to them. If I was stranded on a desert island with only one brand of crankbait to fish with, it would definitely be the bomber brand crankbait. It never let you down and always catches fish.
Bomber crankbaits also work great on walleye, northern pike and muskie. As you see in the fishing video up above, my friend and I not only catch a bunch of smallmouth bass, but also a beautiful walleye as well. So if you’re walleye fisherman, give the Bomber Model 8A crankbait a try, perfect for deeper water where walleye tend to lurk out in.
And here’s a big tip for you!!! Bomber has discontinued some of their best color schemes from back in the day. I’m not happy about it, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still buy them. On eBay, fishermen are always selling old Bomber crankbaits, both vintage and few years old. So if you liked a color back in the day, try searching for it on there.
