My favorite crank
Every time I got to my local bass pro, I buy something new. Somehow I always end up using my Bomber Firetiger each outing at least once.
I have been using this crank since the late 80's and was turned on to it by my dad. No telling how long he used them. It was his favorite. After he passed we put 3 in with him when we laid him to rest. That's how much dad liked them.
Time and time again the firetiger has produced. If I were a tourney fisherman there would be several in my boat. The action is bar none my favorite.
Hooks are extremely sharp and durable. I have 2 ER visits to prove this.
No doubt you will get miles of use out of these cranks.

Bomber a good choice
I just went fishing with the bomber and filled my cooler with the largest white bass I have ever caught. It performed flawlessly.

Very good lure
The color patterns offered on these baits are great, and they're precisely done. The hooks are very sharp and the bait has nice action. But for an odd reason around here, I haven't caught much on them.

I used this, and only this during my club's classic tournament on Douglas Lake in October. I was throwing the 2" model in Foxy shad and boated a lot of fish. After a 3.6 pound largemouth (see pic) slammed it, it started a frenzy and I caught 5 more from the very same spot which gave me a limit on day 1. Smallmouth and even walleye were crushing this thing! Bombers have always been a mainstay in my tacklebox and the Fat Free Shads are no exception! The slim design allows me to throw them cast after cast with minimal fatigue.

Both are good baits and both will catch fish. All crankbaits have different action,and for the most part no two are alike.You just have to figure out what the fish want and go from there. Both baits have their own colors some colors will work better then others depending on the situation. I personally prefer the fat free shad over Bomber baits.
Your color is going to more depend on the time of year and water color. Foxy shad is a great color and is very natural in the water. I would use this color for semi clear water. When I hit lakes that have really clear water, I go with a more ghost transparent color scheme. When I fish lakes that are muddy and/or stained, I go with one with more chart. and/or some with more black or dark colors.
That depends on what type of forage the fish are feeding on. It is a good color but wont be very productive if there are not shad for forage. That does not mean that it wont catch fish because it will.
Depends on the depth you are trying to reach...generally bigger run deeper. I like for my crankbaits to stay in contact with the bottom as much as possible since it makes their action more irratic and as they kick up sand or silt, they look like a fleeing crawfish.
The fat free shad will catch fish but again it depends on where you are fishing and the conditions. Both baits will produce for you but both baits perform differently and have different sizes. You have to let the fish tell you what they want. The fat free shad is a very good bait but the wart does well.
