LunkerHunt Blocked me On Social Media After Video Release

Postby GEO » May Fri 17, 2019 2:12 pm

So I realized yesterday lunkerhunt went ahead and just blocked me on social media after criticizing their one time use paint jobs on their new Kraken Series Frogs. I didn’t have an epic day.... Had nothing special happen. Decided to go to dicks and buy new frogs outside of booyah, Theee were in the price range and I was excited. On the new video on YouTube you can see at the end the amount of paint that had peeled off. I’ll attach a picture aswell. I originally started out with Booyah frogs and have had them last seasons after several 15plus bass days ea week.......

So am I wrong for criticizing what I believe to be a defective lure, Another lure conpany in the trend of catching Anglers and no longer fish. It’s a hot time for tackle junkies and monthly subscription holders... But what about the real Anglers who actually use the lures?

Either way I think it says more about lunkerhunt then anything. And no the new paint isn’t biodegradable lmao just cheap. just thought I’d share ::))

If you do purchase lunkerhunt Kraken series frogs, Just assume your getting a white frog. It will be there in no time


Thank you for your time
Get out there and fish :::))))

What do you mean they blocked you? They don’t own YouTube. You mean like they unfriended you or won’t let you follow them on instaface? Bush league move...

I thought your video was fair, not even really that negative, you liked how the frog performed but the paint job sucked.

They Blocked me as in they cannot see anything I post anymore or message me, and it goes the same for me I wouldn’t be able to see their page or post. (Not that I ever have or wanted too) Was just an unbiased vid of something I love to do ::))

From the feedback I’m getting through Instagram apparently they don’t really take kindly to any negative comments. Even claiming user error to some Anglers lol when something not swimming right. I wasn’t looking for any hand outs or anything like that I was hoping they would simply acknowledge the issue and be responsible enough to try and fix it. I spend more time frogging in a year then anything else. The paint is WRONG.

There’s a lot of competition right now. And the important thing is catching Anglers or getting into those monthly boxes. Let’s just hope it’s not cheapening our industry.


Happy Fishing

I'm a Booyah frog guy like you, but much like you when Dick's was running em 3 for $9 I had to scoop up a few. Haven't used em yet, I'll be curious if the results are the same.

I fish I booyah frogs til I lose em. Some of my best ones are beat beyond recognition. I like to switch to white bellied frogs when the belly starts to match the muck to set em apart, so that might be a selling point to me :lol:

But Lunkerhunt is trash. I have quite a few lures from them and their quality is junk and I feel like they bank on gimmicky crap. See the stupid prop turtle. I have one and it's just awful. I've wanted to try the dragonfly though but hate that it isnt pre rigged.

So I don't know if you peruse other posts, but my last post I mention how I found my previously lost "lucky frog". It's a Booyah Pad Crasher Jr. It caught my PB, has my best hookup ratio, and has caught plenty of nice fish. I haven't taken pics showing how worse for wear it is, but that isn't really why I'm here.

I was told one of my favorite local ponds is getting to the point of being a good frogging pond. With todays overcast to mostly cloudy skies, I forced myself out. I tied on the same frog you have pictured except in a yellow leopard pattern. I felt better with a popper because after the rain the water was up a bit and didn't offer a ton of crap to slide on top of so I thought the sound and action of a popper would do well today. Well it did, but there's a big but to go along with the story.

Not one, not two, but TEN grabs by fish where hooksets came up empty. Well, 2 got hooked but popped off during the retrieve. I can't accept fault in my technique, I was using a 7'3" frogging rod, drag was tight, reeled down and set the hook when I felt weight and nada. Also annoying, every second or third cast I had to squeeze out an immense amount of water from it.

But, hey, the paint held up :roll:
