Rebel CrickHopper Popper
This popper really works well
I have caught several fish using this popper. I did perform one upgrade. I replaced the rear treble hook with a feathered treble and I think this helps. I usually do a pop, pop-pop-pause, pop, pop, pop, pause when using it. Today I caught my biggest bass this year on this lure.I was using this over a flooded grassy area at the far end of W Kerr Scott Reservoir and this bass just exploded on it. It put up a great fight but I finally got it in the net (what a relief), took some pictures of it and sent it on its way. What a rush!

Try it on a hot sunny day!
I was having a slow day when I noticed dragonflies and other insects provoking some topwater strikes. Since I had tried everything else that day I figured why not throw an insect at them if thats what they want. I caught a bass on 3 straight casts including a 2.5 pounder through dense weeds and the small trebles still held him. Strongly recommend trying if you see an abundance of insects next to the bank. Throw it and let it sit for 15-30sec then make erratic twitches and you could salvage a slow day! I even posted a pic with the grasshopper still in mouth.

...fun llittle hopper popper...
...like...i have about four of these...and i have caught with them all...
along with ALL the Rebel insects these are how to catch...!!!
...i dont get the issues with this hopper...tis' a surface bait...and i take it SLOW as with the other rebel buggs...it looks like a hopper preparing to drown...i have caught in Kentucky...Wyoming...and Michignan...these hoppers have been loved in all three states...trout...bass..sunfish...striper...
*....young ones will love this hopper so easy to use and the feesh will watch it until its "ripe"
...ANY of the Rebel insects are worthy baits and get the love...i would score these again..

i absolutely love this lure . it looks like a real cricket in the water struggling to the surface. ive caught many many fish with this lure. the only thing i dont like about it is that it is so darn light that its hard to cast it to more than 15 feet
