The Barrel Bomb is similar in profile to a bullet but with flatter sides and a slightly flat surface under the chin which makes the Barrel Bomb skitter along the surface when it breaths, before diving with a slim bubble trail and rippling under the surface like a traditional bullet. The slim profile and keel weighting allows the Barrel Bomb to run in all sea conditions and can handle speeds up to 15 knots on calm days. This easy running lure is a great all-rounder and runs well on the long corner, long rigger or out back in the shotgun (stinger) position. The hole at the back of the lure head has been enlarged and acts as a hook lock. Just wrap some tape around the crimp and pull it into the hole locking the hook in position. Barrel Bombs run best when rigged with a single hook.
And fish certainly like eating them. Species caught to date include Marlin, Sailfish, Spearfish, Bluefin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Mackerel and Yellowtail Kingfish.
