When To NOT Use The BOMBER
These Slam Series BOMBER lures are at their best when fishing expansive shallow areas with 5 inch+ baitfish because it casts a mile so you can to cover a lot of water with minimal effort.
Their big paddletail design puts off a lot of vibration in the water which enables these lures to attract fish by both sight and feel from a good distance.
The situation where this lure design is at its worse is when fishing smaller zones of structure in calm shallow water when you don’t need to cover an expansive area…
In that situation, the Alabama Leprechaun jerk rigged on a weighted hook is the way to go.
Also, this BOMBER lure can be too big to use during periods where only small baitfish are in the area (winter and early spring)…
When fishing areas with smaller baitfish, you’ll need to use a smaller paddletail like the Slam Shady 2.0.
Just like all soft plastics, it’s important to not mix them with other brands when you’re storing them.
Most importantly, do NOT store these SS Bombers with any lures made by ZMan (even the original Slam Shady lures due to them being made from Zman’s Elaztech material).
This is because some materials have a chemical reaction when exposed to different materials from other soft plastics.
I personally recommend storing them in their packages they come in to make sure that aren’t any accidental touches against other soft plastics.
If you want to store them in a tackle tray, you of course can do that as long as they are isolated into their own section.
This material does not require that you keep it wet, so you can store it for long periods of time while rigged on your rod and you can even store them pre-rigged in your tackle tray as well.
This new lure is an excellent choice if you’re fishing for redfish, seatrout, snook, and flounder in shallow water.
It can help you cover a lot of water with very little effort which will enable you to more consistently find the top feeding zones because of how much water you can fish.
Best of all, it’s easy to retrieve so your wrist won’t be tired from having to retrieve this lure even if you fish it all day long.

Great mini course on the slam shady! I would like to see the same course on the jerk shad.
Good stuff Luke
I’m sure that the rod selection would be updated since 2021 when this video posted but the skipping and mangrove retrieval were enlightening.
The essential equipment video did not touch on leader length. Any recommendations for leader length?
Here’s a lesson on that: https://www.saltstrong.com/articles/leader-line-length/

Great videos, thanks! BOMBER is a great soft bait. I catch many snappers and smaller groupers in 10ft of water. SLAM SHADY and ALABAMA LEPRECHAUN my favorite colors with 1/2oz jig head!
Awesome pointers Luke! Fall is right around the corner here in SC so I can’t wait for these bad boys to come in the mail!! You guys need to come up this way and show these boys in Charleston how it’s done!
Luke great coarse!
How do you find the size of the baitfish for an area?
I was hesitant to joining SS being that I am in NY a for most of the year but it is definitely worth the investment. I have been learning from day one and implement what I have learned in to my NY fishing and it is working out. I had a school of Albies that were finicky on the tins I broke out the slam shady and they loved it. Great info from the boys at Salt Strong
Thanks so much for making time to post the nice comment Ronald!
