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.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
