God but not the best
I like these frogs, but there are better options out there. I like that the price is very reasonable and they are fairly tough for rubber frogs. The fish seemed to like them as well. I think that the action is a little more subtle than some other topwater frogs, but some days that could be just the ticket. I also think I had to reel a little faster than some other frogs to keep the frog on top. I also found the hook slot to be a little short, as other reviewers have mentioned. I like the Stanley Ribbit frogs a little better, but these are good too.
I would recommend getting a package of hitchhikers to secure the frog to your extra wide gap hook, they will make your frog last longer. Give em a try, I bet they will work for you!

I live in a small town in S/E Tennessee and we have a few small lakes in the area that are covered with grass during the hot seasons and very hard to penitrate. The TOAD swims across the grass weedless and in the summer of 2011 I landed 3 large mouth over 6 lbs, one 5 lb, three 4 lbs and numerouse 2 and 3 lbs bass.
I love top water fishing and after a buddy introduced me to the TOAD, I have done much better than prior fishing seasons. I caught 18 fish on my first TOAD before it was unusable.

I was not happy when YUM stopped making the Buzz Frog - I bought 200 packs on discount a few years back.
I only have 10-15 packs left and have sought a replacement.
These are inexpensive, when on sale, and have an excellent action - the bass eat them up.
My only complaint is how soft they are - after several casts or one fish, the plastic tears a bit at the hook insert and needs to be redone. This will then cause the frog to run upside down. A bit troublesome but I still recommend this frog.

This bait has excellent action but the belly is almost flat so if you are not using a weighted hook the bait rides upside down fairly often which points your hook in the wrong direction compromising good hook ups. Easy solutions are using a weighted hook and having to reel faster or if your bait flips with a weightless hook pausing your retrieve and allowing the frog to sink then jerking it almost always flips it right side up. I like the watermelon laminate color over lilly pads or even down the bank.
