The Pike Bomb, with 7 articulating sections and featuring a weighted swivel head, produces an incredibly life-like action under water. Whether you’re casting or trolling, this swimbait will blow your mind. Try these tips:
Run it on a downrigger, on lead core line or simply troll it with weights. With or without a flasher, just tie one on and enjoy. Tie directly to your main line and let out enough line to get to your desired depth. Make sure to give your lure some distance from your weight. Use of a bottom walker is also an option. And remember, it’s best to troll in random patterns and to avoid straight lines for extended periods of time.
Tie directly to your main line and cast it – it’s that simple! If you want to get it out a little farther, then tie a long leader directly to the split ring provided with a swivel connecting to the main line, use as much weight as necessary above swivel, and you’re all set to cast. For added action, try putting some scent on the fabric core – fish simply won’t be able to resist!
General Fishing Tips
Always keep your hooks sharp and rinse off the entire lure with fresh water after using it in saltwater.
Black, due to its contrast, is the most visible colour to fish under most conditions and is the best colour in dark waters. Use darker colors like black, blue and violet under low light or when fishing deep because fish can see them better. Use fluorescent colors like green or chartreuse in greenish waters or deep waters. In clear water, when fishing on the surface, the reds and the oranges often are best. Chartreuse & white or red & white produce the most contrast and are the best combinations under virtually any light.
