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.

Been using the Bumble Bee for 2 years now.
Bass, Crappie, Pickerel
One of my go to lures on a summer day here in NJ. One thing I noticed first time I used it, that bigger Bass weren't landing on rear treble hook.
I replaced the rear treble hook with a larger one (from an old F5 Rapala) and now Bass are hooking more constantly! Also allows a bit longer of cast due to the slight weight gain.
Will try the other Bumble Bug's soon.

i was fishing on vacation and i looked at something thats been in my tackle box but i never used. it was a ladybug colored bumblebug from rebel. and to my surprise on my first cast with the thing i catch a 27 inch pike. so my cousin tries the bumblebee colored one. he catches a small pike. then we both catch about two descent sized bluegill. then we go out later that day. we both catch 22-24 inch pikes and some more panfish. so if you want something that will stir up just about anything try this lure
