Rebel's CrickHopper Poppers are hard to beat when critters are in season. A simple rod twitch causes the ultralight, realistic CrickHopper to pop and dart on the surface, spitting water like a wounded bug. This enticing commotion draws big-time strikes from the most lethargic fish. Quality components and durable paint jobs mean you’ll fish these top water CricketHoppers for years to come. Great on light tackle.
1-3/4"; 3/16 oz.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by popper Well made. Light weight, lead weight required to cast with light line but won't sink lure. Hooks are sharp and well constructed. Bass hit it hard, topwater...requires technique, but can get hit immediately after hitting water. December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ...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.. April 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad popper! I like using these when the grass hoppers are out. I've snagged a few trout with them when it's hopper time! They last pretty well, they have great action, they seem to work for me! January 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Love It I was using this at the lake a couple of days ago on an especially hot day, I got things ranging from a bass that was a pound or two to small bream. The colors on this product are great and i also really like the action and size. September 27, 2012

A: 
This may if fished in and around grass beds, especially when the carp are in rooting for insects to feed on. I would work the bait slowly in areas where you have found carp. Don't be suprised to pick off largemouth and big bluegill by going this route though.

This can work for bass, big bluegill, and other Panfish. You use it by moving rod rod in pops. For me, I use very small pops and reeling in. it is a very good natural bait.

I find that this lure does not ride properly in the water and many times lies on it side, instead of upright. I feel that this lure is trictly a warm water fishing lure, not for trout or carp but maybe for chad...

A: 
You use it about like you would other top water lures. I cast mine towards either cover or the shore and slowly pop it back towards you and then wait a second for a strike and do that all the way back to you. You can catch a lot of different species on it including Bass, Bream, Crappie, and i have even caught a Catfish on it

Great top water bait for freshwater bass. The lure is designed to be twitched in a right to left motion (walking the dog)..I've found success in throwing it to ambush points. Let it set still for a full minute and begin the action...most hits (for me) are on the pause

A: 
I use this lure during the months when insects are active, just cast it near overhangs and along edges. When it enters the water just let it sit for a good 15 seconds many hits will occur before you even move it as fish are looking up for insects to feed on. If after 15 seconds there is no hit, then slowly work the lure back with a pop, pop, pause. Let the pause last for a good 5 seconds or longer before repeating, they will blow up on it. I've caught bass and bluegill on this lure. Using this lure on ultralight gear is a blast.

I do not know if the lure will actually fit in a small or midsized bluegills mouth but thy will strike at it and usually get hooked. The smallest bluegill that i have hooked on mine couldn't have been more then 2 or 3 inches

A: 
It's about one and a half inches long, too large for a bluegill's mouth but very effective in catching them since they get hooked as they grab for it. I suggest buying the smallest version of this lure you can get.

Yes, it is plenty small enough for that.

A: 
The lure is the same body size as a Rebel Bighopper (1 3/4" & 3/16 oz). The hooks are size 10's each. Most panfish are trying to break apart anything that hits the water before they actually eat it. That being said, most of the bites you will get from bream on topwaters and micro cranks are going to be on the middle treble. These hooks are pretty sharp for such an inexpensive bait, so they will grab a bluegill if it takes a swipe at this bait.
The lure tends to roll on it's side, so I replace the back treble with a size 6 hook. It adds a little weight, pulls the tail of the lure down at rest and helps the lure sit more evenly at rest. This bigger back treble also does a better job of holding onto the occasional bass that will no doubt take a swipe at this little hopper. Hope this helps.

A: 
With no problem. If something hits but doesnt hook up leave it still and a lot of times the bluegill will try a few more times and you will get him. The small treble hooks make it easier to catch the smaller fish plus the lure itself is only about 1 1/4" long. I posted a pic of a larger bluegill that fit the whole grasshopper in her mouth
