Heddon's Torpedo propeller baits are legendary topwater lures that create a tremendous splashing disturbance that;s great for schooling fish feeding on or near the water's surface. Whichever size you're casting, this lure's versatile enough to be fished fast or slow, with a steady or sporadic retrieve. However, the key is to vary your retrieve until you've found just the right cadence to trigger strikes.

I am a firm believer that the HEDDON TORPEDO will catch FISH. Who said, "If you build it, they will come,"? How about this? If you create it, They will come! I am talking about all species of FISH! If the lure is appealing, durable, inexpensive, performs and reliable, then you can believe that you will be set up for success. The HEDDON TORPEDO is ALL THAT! It will create the fish INTEREST, FOCUS and then that important STRIKE. What All fishermen SEEK. Case in point, I was fishing in the afternoon, at my favorite lake, in the state of Georgia. I tied my HEDDON TORPEDO onto my line and made my first cast. It landed on the top of open water. I waited for the ripples to reside for approximately 12 seconds and afterwards, twitch my lure once. I waited for 3 seconds and twitch my lure 3 times retrieving it continuously. I waited 3 seconds and on the third second, MOBY hit it. I landed a 15 pound Largemouth. I also caught approximately 10 to 15 largemouth ranging from 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and so on. Do you get the picture? They Came. You can use this method or create your own. I recommend the baby bass, bullfrog and leopard patterns in all sizes. The rod should be 7 ft. medium graphite made of good quality. The fishing line should be 12 pound test made of good quality. The reel gear ratio should be high as well. HAVE FUN! PEACE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jig4Bass Another topwater standby
Heddon torpedos are nearly as reliable for targeting and "blowing" up bass as some of the newer more expensive topwater baits. Mine is the 1/4oz G-shad (silver) color which looks much like a shad trying to escape when used with a persistant chugging twitch. The smaller sizes are a little light and perhaps best used on spinning gear, but a good med-med baitcaster crankbait rod will work it effectively as well.
It's fun to fish and has bass appeal; not a bad combination for targeting bass crusing for their next meal.

I have used the Torpedo hardbaits in the past, but they they were the tiny ultra light ones with some secess. I was pleased with the larger baits castability and action. I caught a couple bass the first time using it and have good luck even on tough days. I will be buying more. Great lures.

by Djpk Great Topwater Lure
I just started using the heddon teeny torpedo's in the 1/8 ounce size this summer. I have to say that this is a great topwater lure. The props on the torpedo make a nice buzzing sound when you twitch it that seems to just call the fish up to it. I usually just throw one out, let it sit on the surface and then give it 2 twitches followed by a pause. If you repeat this action (occassionally giving it 1 twitch instead of 2) you will catch fish. My 2 favorite colors so far are the Black Shiner and the Baby Bass. Here is a pic of a 5 pd carp I caught last weekend on a light action set up with 6 pd line using the 1/8 ounce Black Shiner color.
