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.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
