I have a crickhopper that I have caught smallmouth on. Maybe fish find grasshoppers tastier than bumble bees. LOL

A buddy of mine caught 2 nice rainbows on a McGinty which is a bumble bee pattern. I have never heard of the pattern you speak of. Hope this helps.

Never tried the bumble bug. But I have the tiny crayfish crank and the crickhopper. I have caught lots of tiny smallmouth on both but I find the hopper more productive. It's a nice little ultralight bait. I have also caught perch and other pan fish on the hopper. as well as a few nice 2lb+ smallies. I'm sure it would work for trout also.

k I have one of those crickhopper too, but never tried it seriously yet, I am also expecting some crawfish lures but from a different brand called "AILE MAGNET", what size is your crawfish lure? I saw the one they have in canadian tire at bayers lake but I find it big! is it a good size for normal fishing?

I have the rebel wee craw in a natural craw color. it's about a 2'' 1/4 oz. bait, and you can get shallow or deep diving. Mine is the shallow. It dives to around 3ft or so. There is also the teeny wee craw, which is the ultralight version. I think it's around 1.5''.
