If you want a thrill throw a frog bait along the edge a weed bed or in and around some stumps. Bass will come up and just destroy the bait, provided you are working it correctly. There are lots of different kinds of frogs but I am just going to show you my favourite 3.
As you can see it is pretty much build around this keel system.
It comes prerigged with a frog hook and also has a very soft top so that when the fish bites the hooks are easily exposed. As an added bonus it also has tungsten rattles and even a drain to keep the water out of it. While I didn't catch anything on it in December I have high hopes for this bait. As I said, I can't wait till June. (for those that wonder, why June? Bass season in my area doesn't open until the 4th Saturday in June. Yes I know it sucks)
Try any of these frogs and I promise you won't be disappointed. Just remember to think like a frog and how a frog acts.
