Frog Fishing Essentials

Sat, October 2, 2021

As the summer turns into fall, topwater frogs are some of the best lures you can have in your tackle box. They shine for working over matted vegetation or walked in open water, and of course through lily pads. Combine your frog with a heavy power, fast action rod so you can quickly set the hook and have the power necessary to haul big bass out of heavy cover. The best part about frogging is that you can tie on heavy braid straight to your frog and not worry about breaking your line. Frogging is one of the most fun techniques out there and every angler should give it a try!
