    Hummmm, it may be time for a deep analysis on bombs when we have nothing else to do.

    They could with design. If not already out there

    Is there a tar baby bomb? Or a flashless bomb? All black or? To try and hide from dorado mixed with hoo on kelps and trying to prevent attracting little tuna. A flat color when non shiny is getting bit or trying to sink out below schoolie fish

    Color white is flash to me btw

    A all black bomb would work. Good at times

    Judging by your history this is a common reply contribution busting balls haha

    Anyone who has fished wahoo before with a open mind. Gets what I'm saying

    White is flashy. Not chrome flashy. But its flash. Watch it sink

    The spinner spins but not the bomb

    Fish how ever your mentality is. Options for everyone. Tight lines :)

    Catchy tackle bombs spin, but they were designed to spin. I don't think most do, but depends on how they are made. I've made bombs with 6 oz torpedos and caught fish...those definitely didn't spin.

    C’mon Brad, any seasoned angler knows that a Wahoo will chow down on a fast black piece of metal, but they will turn their pretentious noses at a black piece of metal with some stuff hanging off of it. They are the fashion sluts of the sea. They used to eat wire, now they only eat fluoro. One year bright colors are in, next year they are steampunks?

    I can’t wait to see what the 2019 long-range runways have in store, maybe they will only eat lightly wired ballyhoo with fur like their east coast cousins?

    That's my point. When fishing wahoo in a area corroded with juvenile yft and skip jack. I want to sink the jig down to the wahoo zone. Without getting peanut bit on the sink. Once passed the juvenile yft, skippys, dorado, chopas, ect.

    Then I would use the color (fast) to attract a wahoo bite.

    I have caught more junk fish fishing wahoo then wahoo

    Do wahoo bombs spin? Maybe, but not as much as we do waiting to get on the water again.

    That's because the boat has drifted off the "zone" and into the shallows. I just stop fishing and wait for the boat to move again.

    A good wahoo troll will follow the 35 to 40 fathom curve.

    My son-in-law became interested in fishing. I advised him to buy the Shimano Torium and I sent him a Capt Jimmy bomb in green. He fishes off the Florida coast. He was the only one catching wahoo (east coasters call them Kingfish, but they look just like wahoo). He had a blast catching many fish and sent me a picture of the bomb with maybe only 2 skirt strands left, so I sent him extra skirts. So the east coast loves our west coast green for bombs.

    Kingfish is a king mackerel, not a Wahoo.

    Nominally, most bombs won’t swim. But is there’s an asymmetry anywhere in the knot, head, hook, skirt, or whatever they may “corkscrew” back on a rapid return. A swivel somewhere in the path can help if this becomes a problem...

    Trolling around bouys and getting a troll stop. The bouys were packing the chopas. My favorite junk fish. HB

    They never picked up thier gear the entire trip. And never saw them

    I catch poor men wahoo here easily. Sierra Mackerel will rooster tail the line

    Do wahoo bombs spin :D not durring fishing. Catchy bombs have a spinner that spins that is part of the head. But the bomb does not spin.
