Hello All,

Off to Swanage at the weekend for a weeks holiday. I recently bought a selection of assorted lures and in which was a mackeral design Bass Bomber. Think this would be ideal to use around a mackeral shoal for Bass. My only question is, how do you use it for spinning?? Rather than having a swivel at the end like most of my lures it has a funny pin head typre link, what's this for, surely I don't tie the braid straight to this??

Thanks for the advice!

Mike.

Hi Mike

Judging by the lack of replies, perhaps everyone else is a bit confused about the lure in question.

The only bass bomber I can find with a google search is a twin-tailed plastic lure with lead jig head.

Any chance of a photo or link to the lure on another website?

Cheers
Steve

the bass bomber and bass bandit are very good lures for bass and have accounted for many specimen fish since they first came out just treat them like any other lure on the retreive.

Hi All,
Many thanks for the replies. What I really need to know is how to attach them, like I say, there isn't a split link or anything, just this funny metal pin head?
Thanks again!!

Mike.

Hi Mike

It could be that the loop at the front of the lure isn't formed correctly during the manufacturing process.

I've never seen any lure with a pin head as you describe.

Sorry I can't be more help.

Hi Steve,
I hope not but looking at these pics it looks as thought there are 2 types. I know it's not very visible but if you compare the bass bombers on this site, some have eye's but some have these brass "pin heads" as I call them (although they are a bit larger than a pin head). I hope that you can see what I mean, I can see it as I have these at home!

Thanks again,

i use bombers and bandits the only thing i can think of with reference to pin heads is the brass pin thats put through the eye of the lure as a protector,just take it out its only a pin,then tie on as normal.

you can use a small snap for easy to change lures or just tie it on as normal
