Gambler Cane Toad
This is an awesome bait. The thinness of it makes it so easy to buzz it on the top of the water, and if one strikes it short, just let off a bit, let it sink a few inches and when you reel again the legs have great kicking action that brings 'em right back to it! I live in Central Florida and the Florida Five-O (of course) and the peppergrass are money. Do like one guy who posted earlier says and don't buy one bag, get at least two. They do tear apart after a couple of fish or if you are throwing in heavy junk. But their fish catching prowess will let you overlook this detail.

The Gambler Cane Toad is one of those baits that really flies under the radar. It's ribbed design creates a lot of drag and displaces a lot more water than the more streamlined soft plastic frogs.
I use it primarily in the spring and have caught several 5lb+ bass with it. I rig it with a #5 wide gap worm hook (think Texas style without the weight) and just barely bury the hook tip.
It can be used on the surface or let it sink. Pump then wait a couple seconds then pump again. The ribs will stop the bait after the pump. That's when I get my hits. Great action.
Black seems to be the consistent color. I usually fish it around 1-2 ft deep. Don't open the bag in the house, Bass like the smell but you might not.

This is a great topwater lure. It gives off a lot of water disterbence which can get them to come through the thickest mats or pads. I had a bass tournament a couple days ago and the only fish we caught were on these.

love these frogs, great action and the really get the snakeheads crazy. 7ft heavy action rod, 40lb braid, baitcaster and a cane toad = big trouble for Mr. Snakehead!
