Arbogast Jitterbug. THE topwater lure for night fishing! The Jitterbug has proven its power to ignite explosive strikes throughout the day. First introduced in 1937, it's one of the few early patented lures still available today... a testament to its timeless bass-attracting power. The Jitterbug's double cupped lip, placed precisely at the correct angle produces the loud, rhythmic, surface-busting sound that is proven to be irresistible to every known surface feeding fish.
