Rebel Pop-R Topwater Popper - $4.99

Often imitated but never duplicated, the Rebel Pop-R is the standard by which all other top water poppers have been judged for over three decades. Slowly chug it along the water's surface or retrieve it quickly like a skittering shad, during certain times of year bass can't resist blowing up on the Rebel Pop-R. Available in a variety of sizes and colors to match your fishing situation, only the original Rebel Pop-R has the faith of America's top water master, Zell Rowland.

Rebel Lures  Length Weight
Small Pop-R 2" 1/8oz
Pop-R 2.5" 1/4oz
Magnum Pop-R 3" 1/2oz

Upgrade Your Treble Hooks!

Comments: The pop r is a classic! Great popping action and walks with ease. Change out the hooks though. Bought a new one the other day and have only caught about 7 one pounders on it and the back hook has already opened up.

Comments: When I bought this lure in the foxy momma color and also another color that I did not see on here was the white belly with the lime green top. I went to my local ponds and tested them out and was very pleased with the action on these lures. My second cast out and bam got one and the bass just keep on coming towards the lure and taking it down with em. Very good quality and very good clear coat. Ive used a lot over the last summer and man am i sold on the these top water lures. You wanna catch bass you must have this lure in your tackle box.

From: Sonny: NY

Comments: These lures are great for post spawn, summer, and fall fish! cast it parallel to exposed weeds or cover and pop,pop, pause for 2 seconds theyll crush it. I had one from the 90's that had well over 500 fish caught on it but a toad took me into the weeds and it snapped off these are durable and quality!!

From: Anthony: Battle Creek, MI

Comments: Had a giant bass on with one of these. Took out drag and fought for a minute and came right off. My front treble double ring lock came undone and my treble popped right out in the fish's mouth. Piece of junk hooks. Bait works great though.

From: Tyler: Parkersburg, WV

Comments: This is a very effective popper that catches a variety of species, including largemouth bass. I replace the rear hook with a VMC X-Rap Tail Treble Hook and the middle hook, too, with a Gamakatsu Magic Eye Short Shank Round Bend Treble Hook. When replacing hooks, be careful not to upsize to the point where the lure rides too low in the water and impairs its action. Also, if you tie directly to the lure, add a split ring so the popper can swing around more readily on the pause. 

From: Vince: Tucson, AZ

Comments: I've been fishing Rebel Pop-Rs for years and they are great lures, especially for the money.  Spits and pops great.  The hooks aren't the greatest, I usually replace them. I can't see spending $25 on a similar lure, this $5 model works just fine.

From: E: GA

Comments: The Ladyfish or Herrings love them

From: Carmela

Comments: i use the small version of this in foxy shad for river smallies, and they absolutely kill it.

Comments: Catches fish? Yup. Junk hooks? Yup. WIll it get out fished by cheaper costing baits? Yup.  See, the same applies for your more expensive japanese baits, Mr. Meatwad ;)  I buy my fair share of lucky crafts and Megabasses, but you have to give credit where credit is due. 

From: David: Murrieta, CA

Comments: For us fisherman who cannot afford to buy a $20 popper, this is our bait. Its been a round so long, pops great, walks well too, and just plain works. I mean, c'mon, its a Rebel.

From: Scotty: VA

Comments: Who ever says junk hooks, well mine are sharp and last a few weeks. Also, they catch fish well. It comes down to the action you give it.

From: Joe: OH

Comments: Catches fish? Yup. Junk hooks? Yup. WIll it get out fished by more costly baits? Yup. If you are dealing with pressured, weary fish, go ahead and throw this while I whoop your buttocks on something made in Japan. Sorry, truth hurts.

From: Meatwad: pop lock n drop it

Comments: Fantastic popper. Catches bass with the best of 'em, and only five bucks. Great deal.

From: Jeremy: Tampa, FL

Comments: Why Anyone would look any further and pay 10$ for one of these, I don't know. These are Great poppers! Extremely durable, and have awesome action. Dont ignore them because of the price. These are the real deal!

From: Cobi: MI

Comments: Love this popper! And so do the bass! I don't do a ton of topwarer but when I do I've got this tied on. A good pop pop and dying retrieve works really good. Get one they are only $5 and worth every cent.

From: Mat: Ohio

Comments: I love this topwater always catches me fish in summer and fall. Silver black gets the job done for me. Caught countless numbers of fish on all the sizes and a few other colors

From: MN

Comments: I just bought one of these the first day i used it i caught 10 fish. I love these poppers they are the best simply because they are very affordable. also if you take care of them they keep going and going.

From: Garrett: USA

Comments: I've always loved these topwaters, especially with all the new ones on the market, you can still afford these.  I usually change the hooks on them but the other day I had a factory split-ring break when swinging a fish.  I will definitely still use the Pop-R but I am letting everyone know to take care of them, they'll pay you back!

From: Luke: Lake Charles, LA

Comments: The ole bass popper works like magic in missourri on small farm ponds super durable i have caught probably 25 fish on one lure and it still works like new all i did was put new hooks on it i have 16 of these poppers 6 in the ole bass color

From: Austen: Cottonwood, AZ

Comments: Timeless. For a wonderful price of $5, you get a fish catching machine. The hooks on these are super sharp, get yourself one, or 2, or 3... A+ Color:  Ole' Bass and Silver black, Magnum size for magnum sized bass!!!! I like to work this lure with a pop, count to three, pop pop retrieve.

From: David: Murrieta

Comments:By far the best topwater popper for the money that you can buy. You can pay more but you won't get a better bait. The Pop R in the blue and chrome will catch bass when nothing else will. Don't break the bank get you a couple of these and go fishing.

From:William: Hohenwald, TN

Comments:These topwaters are really nice. They are very durable and they catch a lot of fish.
