Product Specifications

During the summer there is one type of bug that all gamefish feed on: crickets.  It doesn’t matter what type of waters you’re fishing in, if there are crickets around, the ultralight Rebel Crickhopper crankbait is the best way to target them.  The 1-1/2” sized ultralight crankbait dives to down 3 feet making it perfect for getting down in front of the fish’s face.  The streamlined design of the lure makes it easy to cast on 2lb or 4lb test line while still maintaining perfect action during your retrieve.

Colors Available

There are 5 main colors available for Rebel’s Crickhopper Crankbaits.  You can get them in the standard Black or Brown Cricket colors, as well as Yellow or Green Grasshopper colors.  When you are fishing in dirtier waters, or face a time when you need the lure to attract more attention you can go with the Chartreuse/Black/Gold Firetiger color.

How To Work Rebel Crickhopper Crankbaits

Fishing the Rebel Crickhopper Crankbait is relatively simple.  Depending on what the fish are looking for each day you are going to want to very your retrieve and how long you let it sit on the water after your cast.  On calm, no wind days you will want to allow it to sit for up to 20 or 30 seconds after the cast, and then start twitching it ever-so-lightly.  On windier days or when there is a chop on the water you can give it slightly harder twitches, or begin reeling it back at various speeds, allowing the crankbait to dive underneath the water’s surface until the fish tell you how fast they want it moving.
