Missle D-Bombs Or Others Like It?

Recommended Posts

A couple guides I've read and talked to on Lake G have been ripping BIG lips on the SPRO Aruku Shad and this MIssle D-bomb... but I've never in my life fished a beaver or creature type lure like the D-bomb. 

 

Do you use this thing to hook it on a jig? Texas rig it? If so, do you just pop it off the bottom like a texas rigged worm? Finesse style? 

 

Thanks in advance!

All of the above. I prefer to texas rig a beaver style bait but have used them on jigs on colder water.

At times it can be an effective jig trailer but i prefer beavers to be t rigged and i pitch it or flip it cast it drag it shake it or dead stick it it all depends on what the fish want

After talking with John Crews this weekend he Texas rigs them on a 5/0 gammy flipping hook with a tungsten weight and flips with them

Tight lines

Love the D-bombs, t-rigged fished in heavy cover or on punch rigs.

The baby dbomb is even better!

I prefer to T-rig my creature baits and use them mostly for pitching and flipping applications. My go to presentation with them is to just hop them. If you head over to the Missle baits webpage, they have videos of all their baits where John Crews talks about them and then they show the actions of them under water. http://missilebaits.com/index.php/d-bomb.html Hopefully that will help you out.

I prefer them on a T-Rigged Flipping Setup like described above.

 

I also love them on a Jig.  Caught my first Jig bass with a 1/2 jig and a D-Bomb (Bruiser Flash I believe - their black/blue color)

x2 can't go wrong with bruiser flash and candy grass.

Any of you guys ever tossed this thing or something like it on those Owner JigRig's? Seems like an interesting technique...

Believe it or not I have had great success put these on a shakey head. When the fish hit them them just crush them.

I rig the D-bomb on a 5/0 gammy flippin hook. I never used them on a shakey head but it sounds like it would be great especially with the baby d-bomb.
