The Rebel Bumble Bug is a nice, juicy-looking morsel that will provoke strikes from just about anything that swims. Fish the ultra-light Bumble Bug on top, or pop it under the water and swim it in. Either way, the Bumble Bug's wide-wobble, extra-loud rattles and enticing appearance will have your reel buzzing all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 4, 2008
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing I picked up one of these after experiencing a great deal of luck with the similar Crickhopper. It looks realistic, and seems to be a nice size to attract all types of fish, but I found some major faults with this lure, the most glaring being that the fish wouldn't look at it twice. First off, the lure doesn't seem to be weighted correctly. It doesn't adequately stay right-side-up. It seems to float that way, but when you start a retrieve after letting it sit, it can flip over at will, which ruins the "twitch" movement and basically has you dragging a bug upside down across the water surface. The only way I could remedy this flaw was to start the retrieve almost as soon as it hits the water. By doing this I could get enough water onto the bill to dive the bait. This creates a rather unnatural presentation, as not many bugs dive directly into the water and start swimming. I suppose this could be fixed with heavier or larger hooks, but I haven't experimented with that yet. I'd say overall, it works as it should about 40% of the time, which is frustrating. The second flaw is the same relative problem that I have with the Crickhopper: the front treble hook snags the line from time to time upon hitting the water, resulting in an unnatural movement. The only way to fix this is to retrieve the lure flopping like a flapjack, and manually pull the hook out of the line. It seems as if the front treble hook should be placed further back to curb this problem a little. I threw this lure on a pretty high producing pond for about 30 minutes and had only two nibbles, and none of them hit it topside floating in the water. The only positive is that I ended up catching a nice crappie on it (the only fish of the night on this lure). However, I believe due to the circumstances that I startled the crappie into biting rather than luring him in, but a catch is a catch. I'd like to try some heavier hooks to see if I can get it to retrieve a little more reliably. I would also like to try the hornet or bumblebee pattern to see if maybe the fish in my pond just didn't respond to the color. Until then, this thing will probably stay in my spare lure box on the shelf and not spend much more time on my line. July 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Killer Bee OK , for real, this thing gets hit by all species! Only problem is hook ups. You have to change the hooks depending on what your after. Larger for bass, Smaller for pan fish. But it's truly amazing how this thing really ticks off all kinds of fish. Great for kids. and regular fishermen and women. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by bumble bug I have bought and used this lure in the past . It is like a magnet to attract All fish in the area. My onlly complaint is the hook size, once you change that it is fun.I have caught sunnies,perch,lg mouth bass,trout and pickeral on it. May 11, 2013

A: 
Yes. The Rebel Bumble Bug is one of the best harbait lures for catching bluegill. I have caught many bass and bluegill on this lure, but I would recomend the Rebel Cricket because bluegill can't pass up a cricket and they will always go for it. There is also another lure I have that I have caught 40 bluegill with, its called a Johnson Beetle Spin. I have the best luck using the Beetle Spin in a green color with black stripes. Tight lines!

A: 
Yes! It is a great bream getter. It works best in overcast, low light or night conditions. A twitch and kill retrieve is very effective. A fast swim and kill retrieve is also extremely effective. This is also a great lure to use over big grass beds. If the water over the grass is at least 8" deep, this bait will call 'em up. More water over the grass beds make for an even more options to use this bait. Bass will come up and hit this little crank also, so use a longer rod and 6lb test. Hope this helps.

Yes, its a great lure for bluegills I have caught 100's of bluegill on this lure. You'll get many hits when it first hits the water and catch others on the retrieve, it runs in the top 12" of the water and the gill will just nail it.

You really can't, it will effect the performance. A longer rod and lighter line is the only thing that will remedy this problem.

try adding a swivel to the line and attach the lure. Be sure to have a light line and a sure enough good casting reel. Don't expect to catch the hawgs though.

A: 
as someone else mentioned,casting distance on these smaller mini and micro crankbaits really depends on your rod and line combination. i use a 7 1/2ft microlite rod in ultralight action, an ultralight reel and 4lb test P line, and i can cast these about 80ft+. basspro shops doesnt have the complete set of bumblebugs.i have all 5 colors, including the very hard to find ladybug pattern, which works outstanding in mountain streams in the spring and summer when ladybugs are abundant. all of the colors are hornet,junebug,bumble bee, horsefly and ladybug. also, try the rebel crawfish and the yo-zuri snap beans.

i had the same problem. What you would have to do is use a sensitive rod with light line.
Also try casting with the wind, it will help alot.
