Could these be counterfeit?

Recommended Posts

I was in wallmart and saw these for $ 2.50 a piece. I had heard of the Bomber name and thought why not. When I got home I looked them up on the Bomber web site and can't find them. Typed in the number code on each one and they all came up no match. Maybe made just for wall mart?

probably made just for walmart would be my guess.  I have seen "great" prices on plastics there only to look and see they have less items per bag than normal.

Those are genuine bomber brand lures produced by Pradco for Walmart, but they are not from their main Bomber product lines.

 

Pradco makes those for Walmart in the "Bait Bonanza" packaging to be sold as a discount alternative to regular branded baits. 

 

They are provided in stores in saltwater fishing markets.

 

If I am not mistaken these are provided with saltwater, or at least rust-resistant hooks.

 

I have a few and they seem to have actions that would generate strikes.  

 

My sense is they are not especially high-quality baits, but my guess is they will probably work.

Bomber Bait Bonanza isn't the Bomber Lure co, it's a knock off.

Thanks, the hooks are none to sharp, I'll have to touch them up. For cheap money they're worth a shot.
