What brand of Top water Frog

6 posts in this topic

  Just started throwing Frogs last summer! (love it)  What is every body using out there?  There are so many brands BOO YA, SPRO, KVD, SCUM ..ect...   I used Pad Crasher by Boo YA last year and it was very fun.  I really like the White the most.   What brand  & what kind you guys throwing out?   I am planning on getting some and curious what you all use? (already got an idea what I'm buying)

After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed.

I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns.

They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.

 

1.  Terminator frog

2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof

3.  Spro frog (ok)

4.  KVD frog  (took some work)

5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)

 

These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!

Hello and apologize but if I repeat from other post sorry but I'm a Bass Fishing Fean and use to fish Bass Professionally for years and out of all the Frogs Spro makes the best casting and durability of the body is tremendous and doesn't get holes in them like the others and take water on plus they last a lot longer and most important they catch fish. Yes there are others that are out like the spro but the spro was the inventor of the new Frog body design and the rest copied them so that is why I say Spro is the best.  We need to support our locals and the new inventors not the copiers. 

 

Goodluch fishing

Cret,

 

I always have 2 tied on the Glow in the Dark and a Black one tied on and I use them both on clear lakes by pads and or emerged vegetation. Some days they are all about the Black and others all about the Glow in the Dark and no rime or reason to sunny or cloudy.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.

      Welcome FM Chevy!  There's lots of fish to be caught in the Mighty Mississippi.  Plenty of spots to fish from shore right in or near Hastings as well as a little up river by the Wakota Bridge.  The great thing about the river is you never know what you are going catch. Carp, Suckers, Catfish, Walleye, Sauger, Bass, Gar, Big Ol' Snapper, Leather Necks etc..Cats are just starting to spawn so they might be a little challenging and inconsistent right now.  Try some live bait straight line rigs or cranks and keep moving.  I usually don't spend more then 20-30 mins in an area before I move on.  Good luck and let us know how you do!
