Bass Pro Shops Humpin' Toads
I have always been a fan of heavy cover fishing. whether it be frogs or punching baits. I love it but this is my best producer ever. I have the pearl color and I have never had so much luck and fun using a bait. whether it be over the thickest stuff you can find or letting it sink over a stump and twitching it and getting a 7 lb hog!!!! I use a 5/0 screw in hook and it works like a charm. another great product by bass pro shops!!!!!!!!

I have been bass fishing every weekend since July 12 and have landed over 100 fish using these lures. Fish have ranged from one to six pounds. The lake I have been fishing is very weedy so I guess my only down point with this lure is that after a fish or two it is tore up and the hook is no longer able to be effectively rigged weedless. The reality is that if my drawback is directly related to catching fish is it really a drawback.

Not normally a frog user...but this jelly (w/out) a weight stay about 6" under water's surface. Many a largemouth have looked up and seen a tasty meal swimmin' by. Have landed 3 LM bass over 4.5-lbs each last week in Everglades.

Not bad for its intended purpose
As stated in the title, this frog is not bad for its intended purpose. And that purpose is more like a weedless buzz-bait. Many reviewers are mentioning that this frog doesn't float. Its not designed to. Ive found that this frog and any of the paddle-footed frogs like (Stanley Jigs ribbit, zoom toads etc.) are best used with a slow buzz bait type retrieve. True, it doesnt float but it doesnt sink nearly as quickly as a buzz-bait. Because of this you can get a much slower retrieve while still keeping the bait on the surface. I like to use a lighter wire hook to also aid in slowing the sink rate. But if you are going to do the same, dont make a huge hookset like you would with a hollow bodied frog, because with a heavy rod and heavy line, you will bend out your hook. When the fish hits, wait a second or two, reel up all slack so that the rod begins to load and lean back with a firm but steady pull. This will ensure that your hook is set well without bending it out. With that said, the only concern i have with this frog is that it is not as durable as other similar frogs. But if a fish really explodes on it, and that is the strike youll get most of the time, not many soft plastics of any type will survive it.
