Earlier this year Bassmaster.com gave a glimpse at what was brewing here at Optimum Baits with Fred Roumbanis and his new custom swimbait. After its stellar debut at icast 2016, the long awaited release of the BoomBoom swimbait is finally here!

 

 

Like all of our products, a lot of R&D went into the design of this swimbait. To read more about how this bait was born from the minds of Fred Roumbanis and the Optimum team, click here.

Weedless Swimbait

The Fred Roumbanis Weedless Boom Boom Swimbait features a quivering head action, tight body roll and thumping tail kick. It is designed to be fished slowly around cover with a weighted screw lock swimbait hook, where its “panic action” entices lurking fish into committing to strike the bait.

Rigged Swimbait

The Fred Roumbanis Boom Boom Swimbait  features a quivering head action, tight body roll and thumping tail kick that produce maximum action at a slow retrieve speed.  The lure’s “panic action” entices lurking fish into committing to strike the bait.  

Hold the rod up to keep it shallow, or extend it down to reach deeper depths.

“As a touring Pro angler, I know the importance of a ’one big bite.’  Why not use a bait that can produce several big bites a day?  Our goal here at Optimum baits is to create the ultimate tournament-approved swimbait that works from coast to coast.”  – Elite Series Angler Fred Roumbanis
