Vintage Bomber Crankbait

Vintage Bomber Rainbow Trout Crankbait

Guess what fellow fishermen, I spotted my favorite lure up on Ebay today. The vintage Bomber Model A 1 3/4 in. Rainbow Trout Lure.


I’ve been waiting and waiting to see if I can grab one up on Ebay. It’s pretty cool that I’ve found this one, but I have noticed that the crankbait’s finish is pretty hacked up.

You can see paint chipped off probably from fish’s teeth and banging it off structure in the water.

I would really like to buy this one, but I have a feeling that it won’t swim right. The lip on on old fishing lures tends to get bend over time, resulting in the crankbait to swim sideways or uneven.

You can always try bending it back to swim right, but you can also crack the lip when doing that.
So I think I’m going to pass on this Bomber rainbow trout crankbait and hopefully find a newer one up on Ebay eventually.
