Gambler's Cane Toad is the ultimate swimming toad and is as close to a sure thing as you'll find! These deadly, soft plastic Cane Toads are designed with a larger body to hold a bigger hook while their thinner profile allows for better hook penetration. Cane Toads produce maximum splash at slower retrieve speeds.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet 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. March 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bait 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. December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing 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. November 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Snakehead Killa 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! August 21, 2013

I haven't really taken much time to look for hooks for my soft plastics and usually just use a worm hook for most of my soft plastics, and the body on this toad is too thick usually for my worm hook.

I rig it with a #5 wide gape worm hook. No sinker. Lightly bury the hook tip in the top of the bait between the legs.

A: 
worm hooks just won't do for this type of bait. you really need an Owner 5/0-6/0 rigin hook. make sure you thread it straight and have fun!!! peirce the tip of the hook into the back of the frog just a little to drag it thru the slop!

A: 
Yes and the fact that they make a lot of noise coming across the water is why they are so effective both night and day.

I use an Owner 6/0 EWG Superline Wide Gap Hook. That way I can use the same rod for fishing a BigEZ or a Skinny Dipper.

A: 
I have not tired at night but their should be no reason for this lure not to work and yes you will be able to use the Stanley double hook (works great together). When night fishing and shady areas use black or dark patterns that produce maximum contrast against the bottom or against a starlight surface.

A: 
If you have no vegetation, do not texas rig them. I prefer a 5/0 on these, but a 4/0 works too. Sink the top of the hook deep, but leave the point out, stiff, working near the legs. Also, I'd make sure the hook is a black nickel instead of red. For some reason I get less strikes on these in red.

when it hits the water let it sit for a couple seconds and the weight of the hook will flip it the right way.

A: 
With the soft plastics the trick is to make sure you run it straight thru the middle of that frog on both sides. use a 5/0-6/0 riggin hook thru the nose and up thru the belly.

A: 
Just make sure you've rigged the hook straight down the body of the bait, any bit off center will cause the bait to roll. Also it just tends to roll if you're casting reeling it in as apposed to flipping with it.

A: 
try a weighted worm hook, it acts like a keel and keeps it right side up, or just crimp on a split shot to the worm hook you are using, the weight will help it stay upright, it will sink faster this way but not that much fast,er just retrieve a little faster to start to get it to the top then you can slow down to normal speed. or just engage your reel before it hits the water, which is what i do

A: 
Nothing wrong with you.It's the bait sometimes when a weightless approach is need a quick little pop will usually rite the bait.But if your still turning over use swim bait style hook but you want to use a hook with the weight attached near the bottom of the bend. If you don't the bait will want to nose dive. When going weight keep baits nose up by a raised rod tip.
