Need help identifying crankbait

11 posts in this topic

My brother dug deep into my tackle box and pulled this one out. It turned out to be the most consistant bait I had all summer: walleyes, northerns, smallmouth, and largemouth all liked it. It is about four inches long and runs about 18 feet deep trolled 120 feet back longlining. I have only this one and thought I'd better try to get more before I lose this one. I did a little searching on the web and came up empty. Can anyone identify it?

Thanks in advance for any help I may get.

Thanks, but I don't think so. The Wally Diver's have a flat lip and the body is a little more shad-like. I guess I have been leaning towards a Bomber of some sort, but I can't verify that.

I believe what you have there is Bomber Heavy Duty Long A. I may be wrong about the heavy duty part... But pretty darn sure its a Bomber.

Bomber more than likely but could also be a Manns but it looks more like some of the deep bomber long A's I have.

Bomber A series

I have a gold/black, blue/silver, and a wonderbread one.. They're my go to walleye cranks over summer

The rainbow trout pattern hasn't caught anything yet, but still got my fingers crossed.

Thanks for the help guys. I think they may have changed the lip design. I found a web page from 2006 that shows the pattern I have, but with the oval lip. Nice to know what it is so I can get some, hopefully in that baby pike pattern.

Yep, its a bomber. I had one similar in a green color. Caught everything! including, sadly, a snag.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
