  • Paddle feet for terrific topwater action
  • Soft belly is easy to rig
  • 7up™ scent attractant
One of our most popular soft plastic baits! The Humpin' Toad stirs up frenzied topwater action with paddle feet that really whirl and twirl. Just toss it onto a pad, crawl it off, let it sink a second, and then reel it in. More times than not, you'll stir up a big bass bonanza! Soft belly makes it easy to rig with a double-prong frog hook. Flavored with 8up scent attractant.
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. July 12, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by ...good sturdy frog.. ...like...i have a box full of these frogs in all sorts of flavors...all of them have been loved by the largemouth and the gators...*pike*... they dont tear off with just one feesh...unless its busy hating you gator style...i have used one all day long and had one leg torn off.. nice frog with good action...loved by various feesh March 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Argentina fishing As a Pro-Fishing Guide in Argentina for over 18 years, I have tried many different baits. Golden Dorado and Wolf fish are our main targets. They have very different behaviors, so finding a lure that will provide action with both species is very rare. The Bass Pro Shops® Humpin' Toad was a great find, it works on both species and delivers non stop action. Fishing it on top of weed beds brings up the Wolf fish that jump clearly out of the water to catch them. In deeper water, If you let them sink and retrieve with a erratic movement they will get Golden Dorados to bite. The only mishap is that they break after a couple of hits, but this happens with any lure that gets hit by our fish. So they will remain as a first choice in my fishing bag. Great product, thanks!!! For those that don't know about Golden Dorados & Wolf Fish, check out the pics... February 20, 2013

A: 
They do not float, if you cast and wait, they will sink. But if you retrieve them in a steady pace they will work as a Top Water lure.
This versatility covers many different fishing needs. They catch fish in all conditions!!!

A: 
These lures sink if you're not doing a steady retrieve. The plus side of this is that you can fish them topwater or like a swimbait. The paddle tails have great action and if you swim them fast enough they buzz the surface.

A: 
Find a hole in the grass and let it set, it will sink slowly. Then as you reel, it skims across the water like a swimming frog and you get topwater action.

They float not too great. They sink some after you cast it, but it does come up to the surface after a few seconds. It is very effective on the topwater too

A: 
The lure does not float. It sinks, but at a slow rate. It is heavier than other soft plastic baits. Wouldn't say you need to weight it if you intend to have this near the surface at the top of the weeds where bass would be looking for it.

A: 
Lure sinks without action provided by the angler. These lures skim the surface with a steady retrieve, and they make a great swimbait if retrieved slowly.

Use no weight. It will sink slow, then reel and it swims across the water for top water weedless action.

A: 
No, this lure has an excellent sinking action. I've had a few bites letting it sink in fishy looking areas and lightly jerking the bait to the top, giving it the look of a frog escaping a predator.

A: 
It does have a small weight in the rear of the body. And the thing floats great, Every three or four cast you may have to squeeze a few squirts of water out of it but no big deal.

A: 
I used a 5/0 extra wide gap hook and it worked fine. I would also recommend some hitchhikers to screw into the nose of your frog then attache it to the hook eye. This will make your frog last longer.

I am using a Mustad 5/0 with the spring looking bait holder. Also don't forget the braided line. It keeps the bait up on top better and helps get the fish out of the thick weeds when they hit it

I like to rig it Texas style with a Gamakatsu 5/0 superline EWG hook. This seems to give me the best hook up and retrieve.
