Has anyone used these yet?  I love them, they slide right out of the way when you go to set the hook but stay intact after many fish. The only time I have to rebait is when I get snagged and have to break off. Does anyone know of a similar bait that feels the same in your hand( the ribs )? I have felt other baits and most do not feel as smooth as this does. I know reaction innovations make a beaver bait that a lot of my friends swear by. Does anyone have a similar bait they enjoy to throw?

I have thrown the Bomb a few times behind a Biffle head.  Caught a few fish and I agree it does seem to be more durable than other similar baits.  It hasn't been my experience that it catches any more fish than other baits, but I haven't thrown it enough at this point to say.  They do have some colors that you can't find on other baits. 


I'd rather be fishing

I normally throw it texas rigged or punch with it, i havent used it as a jig trailer yet.

My number 1 beaver style is a pit boss. They are ribbed on the bottom similar to the d bomb. A grew others that I feel should be mentioned are the kvd rodent and rage tail menace. The menace is not a traditional beaver style but it is compact and great for flipping/pitching/punching/jig trailer. if you want just a little more action, I would give it a look.

I'm also a big fan of the Pit Boss. I am also really interested in the D Bomb, but it is too cold for me to try them. I have used the Reaction Innovations Sweet Beavers and I really like their color selection. Other than that I do not really think of them as anything special. That's just my opinion on them though.

I pick up one pack right after Ish won the BASS tournament on them last year. There's nothing bad I can say about the bait but I don't think it stands above some of the other beaver style baits that are on the market. I don't think it's any worse either, just a subtle variation on the lure. The two beaver baits I use most are the original R.I. sweet beaver and the NetBait B-Bug. I like the R.I. smallie beaver better than the smaller version from NetBait but I prefer the B-Bug in the "regular" size.

The biggest difference I have seen is that they stay weedless and have a better hook up ratio because you only burry the hook in thin ribs and not thick plastic.  Give em a shot once this weather warms up, try candy grass or love bug they have them in almost every dicks. The one out in orland has them, little bit of a drive though.

haha that's funny you would mention that because I was there a few weeks back and I picked up a few packs of them. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

Texas rigged on a 3/0 hook with any weight you want is an awesome setup.
