kermit..... :mrgreen:

I like the Spro's, but they are expensive. Scum frogs are my absolute favorite. Green popper. The furbit's are absolutely incredible, but they are also expensive.

I have had average success with the scum frogs from Bass Pro Shops... Used to catch more of them back when I fished a lot more tournies, now I hardly frog fish at all... They did catch fish but then again frog fishing can be tough bite... - BPM

Rick,
Spro are my favorite frog. Love the hook and you can fling that thing a mile. Like the leopard pattern myself.

Scum Frog are good too but I always get the ones with the upgraded hooks, The old Horny Toad is a good way to go too.

By the way, you fish Mazonia very much? Good fishing.

I totally agree with the popper scum frogs. I just picked up 8 of them on ebay for the price of one spro frog. I like the new spro popping frog. I use the horny toad a lot when I start an area. Look for a pattern on a lilly pads and mats. Then I'll throw the frog around the area that got the most blow ups. Then I flip a carolina rig if I want to clean up.

I like the Spro Jr.'s

I learned a lil tip with those from watching TOO much MyOutdoorTV.Com:

Take a utility knife and cut a slit in the body of the frog directly underneath where the hook points stick out. This will help the frog body flex and allow a cleaner hookset. Careful not to cut too much and you will sink your bait every cast....

:wink:

I like the Bigfoot frog for open pockets. Lots of my bites seem to be on top of weed mats though, and that is not the ideal frog for that IMO. The hooks tend to get snagged up everytime I transition from open water to a weed mat. For that type of fishing its either the Spro or Scum Frog. I also have another model that is straight rubber, heavy as heck, and completely weedless. I don't know the brand as I bought it at a bait shop in Fremont several years ago.

Yes. I like the WWII version. Culprit had one at a tourney last year. Had to try them out, and was not disapointed. I credit it as the lure that got me into topwater fishing.

Another vote for the original spro.... That is, once I learned to pause before setting the hook.

Just picked up two of these and man are they nicely made! The body of the frog has a lot of flex but also seems to be very durable, awesome Owner hooks, and legs made of real rabbit fur. Going to give 'em a try tomorrow morning. Hopefully I'll have a nice report...
I've actually done the best on the popper model. Those work well too though. Nice thing about em is the fish is always hooked well. Good luck with them!
