The Rebel Crickhopper is one of the most realistic grasshopper imitators on the market, and it's extremely versatile for topwater or crankbait use. It features a great side-to-side wiggle when cranked, but it can also be fished with all the topwater techniques. Awesome profile and super-realistic paint jobs accurately mimic a real grasshopper. The Crickhopper is a tremendous lure when twitched on top, but for trout anglers, a straight medium retrieve proves effective in tailraces or lakes, and it's great for going after summer and fall bass. Equipped with two super-sharp treble hooks.

1) Bass - Cast as far as you can. Let it sit there a few moments. Take out most (but not all) of the slack. Whip your rod to the side one time. This causes the crickhopper to do a quick jerk. Wait a few more moments. Whip it again. If you don't have the sucker yet, it's time to up the ante. Keeping your rod almost straight up, slowly reel in until your line that's landed on the water is now out of the water. At this point, your crickhopper will be doing an irresistible waddle on the surface. It takes a little bit of practice, but you want to reel it as fast as you can without making it dive, but not too slow, or you won't get that enticing ripple behind it. The black color of this particular model is great for clear days with clear water. It becomes a black-on-blue sky target for those bass.
2) Perch / Crappie / etc - Cast it far. Reel it so that it dives, but stop every now and then and let it surface. You'll get one of those suckers real quick.
3) Bullfrogs - Hey, I said ANYTHING, didn't I? Find you a bull frog on the bank. Cast this crickhopper onto the bank a little ways away. Reel in the slack and make the crickhopper jitter. With the fish, you can catch and release. Those frogs go after this, and the only way you'd be able to let them go is if you cut their tongues. The treble hooks mess them up good. I did it a few time by accident casting near the bank and getting caught on a root. Felt terrible everytime.
I've added a photo in response to the question about actual size.
