Looks like the old rebel lures.
Ahh, looks CAN be deceiving....
The Hellcat is a VERY thin, light swimmer that is DEADLY on bass feeding on sandeels. They float much higher than a Rebel.
I recall one late June night at Caumsett S.P. with fish popping all over (this was in the late 90's folks!), and all they wanted was those friggin' Hellcats!! I tried 4" Rebels, nuthin' except a few bumps. Forget even trying a 5" Bomber in situations like these, too fat! Problem with the Hellcats was the VERY fragile plastic lip and weak construction overall, but MAN did they work...I wish they came back...
BTW, that silver with blue back color is hot!
