Frogs, topwater, weedless..

Recommended Posts

Bought one today and tried it out a couple of hours...never caught anything...but as an amateur thought it was great over weeds..even got it over several out of water stumps..casts pretty far too. So what do other anglers think about these, should the colour match the local frog populations?

I love frog fishing, hook ups can be an issue at times, as for colour i use greens, yellows and white I don't think colour is a huge issue for frog fishing to some it matters, the biggest thing with frogs is most people fish em to fast , twitch twitch pause hold on.

good luck

I tried to simulate a kick and glide motion that you see a swimming frog do, with a little pause in between the end of the glide and the start of a new kick. The wind was a little up today so I tried going against the wave action to be more visible. I probably just need a solid day of trying to see if it works.

They're so much fun to fish with. For color , I usually go with black or white . I find a good technique is to wait a little while after your initial cast before moving the bait (like until the ripples fade) , and then start a slow retrieve. A lot of times bass will hit it just as you start moving the bait.

What is it that makes "white" bait so effective?

 

absolutely nothing especially on top waters

 

all baits look black looking up from the bottom due to the light

 

 

hold your spro frog up to the sun and look at it , oh the frog is black now same as all other topwaters, but if it gets your confidence up go ahead

 

ask a diver about this!!! objects on surface look black on the bottom looking up

 

same as red hooks **ever seen blood underwater** it is black

A wise man once told me, "All ****y looks grey in the dark." I guess it was meant for more than one aspect in life.

I've got to agree. White topwater has worked best for me scince I started fishing. Moss boss, jitterbug, popper, spook, frog, you name itt and I got a white one.

Part of what makes them effective is Largemouth can pick up the movement across lilly pads even if they cant see it. I have dragged frogs across thick lily pads and wathced the lilly pads pop up as the bass try to hone in on it, its pretty exciting.
