fish eat bugs, this is a bug with hooks!!! The bumblebee is made to replicate a wounded bee that has landed on the water. It has floating wings and regular soft plastic body with a size 6 hook as the stinger! Fish it by tying it directly only your line and casting it near panfish. be ready for bluegill and crappie to go crazy over getting it, but hold on because we have bass slamming these things from time to time!
