i've never used a plastic frog but i bet they'd work wonders on some of the weedy ponds i fish, maybe even on the noli when sm are feeding on top. do any of you guys use em on the area lakes?

I use 3/0 EWG Owner Cutting Point Hooks on mine and fish them weightless near boat docks and grassy banks or near weed lines that extend away from the bank and on or near the surface.

well just about every body know that I like to fish cranks. But my new years thing was to learn how to fish other baits. I have been playing around with the baits that I bought from softy. The only hooks that I have right now are off set worm hooks ( owners 2/0 3/0 4/0 ) So I put the frog on a 2/0 and gave it a throw as soon as it hit the water a bass blow up on it but I pull back to fast and lost it tryed some more but my
is that the frog would swim upside down every time. I know its something to do with the hook. Some body help me with this.

The offset worm hooks do not protrude down far enough below the bellie to create a rudder effect. Needs to be a Extra wide gap at least 3/0 or 4/0. Owner makes a hook that I use that works well in it. I will send the hook style and number to you. I began buying it because they work wonderful on Tube baits also.
And I tell everyone that gets these frogs that they need to be ready for a strike almost as fast as the frog hits the water in most cases cause it will get hit that fast many times.

thanks softy I got to play some with your bait yesterday and I loved the action from your frogs and even had a bass blow up on it the first cast. I just got a lot to learn about soft plastics. And what hook to us with each different one.

And give the fish a few seconds before crossing his eyeballs. If the bass misses the frog throw a worm and you will more than likely get a hit. The fish is already worked up from striking at the frog and is obviously feeding. The worm will get 'em if the frog doesn't.

That is the same technique I use when fishing a buzz bait. If I get a bass to blow on a buzz bait and not get it I will continue the retireve but once I get the bait in I will pick up the almighty Fluke and put it as close as possible to where the fish blew on the buzz bait. Normally I am ready for the strike almost as soon as the Fluke hits the water so I am primed and ready for a hook set when I make the cast.
