Rebel® Bumble Bug®
This is a must have
My kids got this lure for me for Christmas. One afternoon I took my oldest daughter out bank fishing a pond full of largemouth bass and bluegill. She tied up one of these in the Bumble Bug color and caught two nice bass almost back to back. She ended the day with 20 bluegill and 7 bass. She caught so many fish I had to replace the hooks after that. The next night I took my next oldest daughter and my niece, her first fishing trip, to the same ponds. My niece used this lure all night and her first fish was the biggest bass I have seen come out of that little pond. A few days latter my wife and I were out fishing at a river where fly fishermen frequent when she hooked into a beautiful 14” rainbow trout. She just let it drift down in the current and then started retrieving it and this fish just slammed it. If you want something that can catch a lot of fish, both variety and quantity, this is a must have. If you have kids this is a must have, they will just love throwing it out. If you like to night fish this is a must have the wide wobble of this lure just calls to them. You can fish it slow on top or just straight retrieve. The fish love it both ways. This is my family’s favorite lure.

Fun little lure
The bug works great in clearwater conditions. Caught smallmouth and panfish at my favorite spots. Also fantastic catching trout on the river, albeit clear water conditions. Haven't gotten a large mouth with it yet...good lure, exciting topwater fishing. Ultralight was difficult to cast but worked fine with my nanofil lined reel. Solid buy. Great wobble action but not enough rattle.

My favorite color is the bumble bug! It looks just like a bumble bee! When I first got this lure, and got it of the box,I thought it was big! But when the bumble bees started buzzing around, I saw one that was about the size my thumb. So I decided to try out the bumble bug, and it worked like a charm on the brookies! I also have all the other colors, including the lady bug pattern. They work well on perch!

Way too easy to miss fish
The hook to lure ratio, just isn't right. Fish seem to never get their mouth around this bait. I usually try to use it on an ultralight to try and catch a few small bass for a good fight with 2 lb. line. But never works for me.
