Help with Treble Hooks

Recommended Posts

What size hooks are typically on a bomber model A or a lucky craft? I have an old bomber model A in a color they don't make anymore but it was my favorite back in the day. Hooks are rusted out.

I love the Bomber A series and I believe they all use a size 6 treble hook.

Thanks! Just ordered.

When I started getting back into fishing when I was around 30 or so one of the first lures I got was a Bill Dance Bomber Model A. It seemed to catch more fish than anything. This was before I started using worms and was really a novice fisherman.

So I found an affection for this lure, and now that I've gotten back into fishing for the third time I found this lure with rusty hooks. Would love to clean it up and use it again.

The A's and some of the others I use must ad triple grip short shanks and up size the belly hook to size 4. I do this with the 6a and sometimes the 5a. I don't notice any more hangups and it seems to get bites a little better when grinding rocks or gravel to imitate craws because it doesn't float up as fast when paused
