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.
