Frogs .....

Recommended Posts

  Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year :) by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!

Booyah's, both types. I have had some of the poppin ones crack around the line tie though. Comes from catching lunkers on them I guess. :lol:

 

There is a bit of a rush to frog fishing!

Last year I caught the most fish on a Zoom Horny Toad.  Tru Tungsten Mad Maxx was my top hollow body; That company went belly up at least five years ago.  I also caught some on Spro, Snagproof, Booyah, Lunkerhunt and I got my biggest bass last year on a LiveTarget.  I had problems with the fish staying stuck on the Booyah's.  

 

I got some Terminator Poppers to try this year.

This Bass fishing is highly addictive!!   I have some Snag Proof Bobby's perfect frog coming this week and also ordered some SPRO's and a Terminator.  All hollow body soft shell.  I just fooled around with frogs last year and did a lot of reading u such.  Hope to really expand my frog fishing this year.  I fish a small clear lake with lots of weeds and lily pads with good depth of the weed lines.  should be fun!  Thanks all for sharing!!

I use 4/0 unweighted Stanley Ribbit Double Take Frog Hooks.  They have become rather expensive so I fish them with 30lb Umpqua Tyger Wire Leader to help prevent bite off's from pike.  For a single hook I like it to have a screw in head like a 4/0 Owner Beast or the Zoom Horny Toad Hook.  The Horny Toads really excel in the early and mid fall once the shallow slop starts dying back.  Horny toads and buzzbaits are a solid fall pattern.  Calm water is better for Horny Toads.  If there is ripple on the water Stanley Ribbit's and Strike King Rage Toads create more commotion.

If you want to keep it simple, buy a bunch of black Booyah Pad Crashers. They're relatively inexpensive (compared to some frogs, anyway), pretty durable, and draw tons of strikes. You can mess with different colors for fun, but you can't really go wrong with black.

Terminator's new(ish) frogs are also amazingly good, and cast and walk better than Booyahs IMO.

I use those double hooks with the Horny toads also, but they always seem to land upside down. Any trick to get em to land up right. If you let them sink alittle, then they will turn over, but sometimes the cover is to thick for that .Maybe that is why you said you like them when the cover isn't so think.

we need some 50+ degree water!!    ok, were just starting to get 50 degree weather, that felt good yesterday.   So i fish a small clear lake and on a Saturday morning early and its June .... I am thinking frog for that early light lily pads?  What else you guys using in that scenereo?  or is that your weapon of choice to begin with?  I used the Yama Swim worm last year .... WOW!!  that worked but i think this Frog could be fun also!

Yes, 50's felt nice yesterday. :) 

 

If the pads have some holes and gaps or when fishing other shallow weeds that are submerged a bit, then I usually throw a Zara spook for early morning top water action. For me I feel hook ups are better than a frog. Always fun to see one disappear in a big boil of water!

 

Oh almost forgot, also have a senko on another rod ready in case they miss. Sometimes that will get them to bite again.

Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!  :)

Terminator Walking and Popping Frogs are the only frogs you need.

Widest hook gap of any frog on the market.

They walk easier than any frog since the weight is so far to the rear of the frog.

Soft and collapse easy.

It will be the only hollow body frog I throw now.

Terminators are just Live Target knockoffs IMHO. Also one of the few 3/4 oz frogs out there, great for long casts.

Huh?  They look totally different to me.  The Terminators copied no one to come up with that goofy looking profile.  Apparently they catch fish pretty good though.  I got some poppers and an original to try this year.  I am really interested in the Jr. version that will be coming out this year.

    • I did ask about dish soap and he said because there are  no toxicity studies that have been done with soap mixed with their product he can't legally comment on it. He did make it clear in his own way it wasn't needed. Haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet.
    • Interesting.  I was searching for instructions and got conflicting advice.   The no oil thing is good to know...I've got this creeping charlie issue in my lawn.   2,4-D and triminic doesn't seem to do much.    Gonna give this stuff a try.  What did they say about a little soap in the tank?
    • If it is garter snakes, pick them up with your hand and put in a bag.   Release them a mile or so away.  
    • One of my absolute fears, I'd sell the house!
    • Ask and ye shall receive. Now I have so many orioles, lots of young ones, I'm going thru almost a jar of jelly every 2 days! I wouldn't think they would be migrating thru going south yet would they? The catbirds like it too and I have about 1/2 dozen of those. They are pretty neat birds. I also have about a dozen of some kind of sparrow hang around that I can't identify. I can't take good enough pictures to post or I would. They are big birds and the closest I can come is a white crowned but they are not white on top of their heads, that's brown but have black and white stripes over the eyes like white crowned. Also their chests are mottled yellowish brown and darker brown. No yellow patch or white throat like a white throated. Broken white stripes on the wings and lower back. Bill is dark gray on top and light translucent whitish (not really pink?) and they actually look a lot like a female Grossbeak but I know they aren't. Seems one of the sexes are a little browner than white on the head stripes.   They are brown around the eyes but do have a thin white area below that to neck but the white does not go under the bill/throat. I'm searching websites but still can't find them.
    • Delcecchi, Just got off the phone with Brushtox customer service. For tank/spot treating lawn use 3/4 oz per gallon. No surfactants (Diesel will kill all grasses). Should not harm northern grass if directions are followed. Be sure of zero rain for 24 hours. (The mix for brush killing is 4-6 oz/gal and does require surfactant.) Weed will probably take a week to show results. BE Sure to wear long sleeves, long pants, rubber/latex gloves, shoes and socks, and eye protection, it's very irritating to eyes. Apply with coarse spray.  The guy had never heard of this Celandine Majus (Sp)?  Phone number is 800 264 5281 if needed and they are very helpful.  I haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet but plan to later today.  Southern Ag.(crossbow) phone is 941 722 3285 
    • Our annual ice fishing kickoff event is a little over a month away!  We just want to make sure everyone gets it on their calendars!   This year's date is Saturday, September 28.  Held at our building in Blaine, MN.   We'll have seminars from Ice Team and Ice Force Pros, along with vendors showcasing all of the new products for the upcoming ice fishing season!   Oh, and AWESOME deals on everything you need to have a successful season!   We'll post more details as we get closer, but for now please mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28 and we'll see you there!!   Thanks for all of the support!!
    • https://raganandmassey.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Brushtox_1gal.pdf   Looks like a couple quarts per 100 gallons, with some diesel mixed in.   That would be like maybe an ounce or a little less per gallon.   Sounds like heavy duty stuff.   
    • Warning about 80 is just for the day you spray right? It is getting cooler now so I should be ok. Del, I wonder if that Brushtox has mixing instructions for brush killing. That would be pretty strong and I have been warned about following the instructions exactly. Thank you. I will check into it today.
