SPRO Bronzeye Popper
The Spro Bronzeye Popper is great because, it can go where other poppers with treble hooks can't go. It can be fished in any type of cover, and it doesn't get snaged. I really like this bait in the Midnight Walker(02) and Lepord(16) colors. If you find that you are missing bass try triming down the leggs, but not too short. This really does make a difference. Also, if you hook a bass in heavy cover don't force it out. Insted, go to the fish and work it out carefully.

Another winner from Spro
What can I say about this lure. It's awesome. It's almost like being able to have a weedless Pop-R type lure. BIG bass love this lure. Pop it, twitch it or walk it and you will likely have a very good day. Frog fishing requires a lot of patience unless they are just going crazy but once you settle into a little slower more methodical pace/style then you will begin to call out those monster bass from their deep cover. Whether it's lily pads, vertical wood, horizontal lay-downs, low overhanging foliage or even some open water this Spro does it all. Want to put big bass in your bag? Then put the Spro Poppers in your cart.

Favorite popper so far!
I absolutely love this popper. I have 4 of them in my tackle box, and have had an additional 3. Why 7? well i lost 2 of them to fish and 1 my friend took after watching me land 20+ lbs of fish in, i kid you not, 5 casts. It is durable, easily repairable when you do get rips. Just a dab of super glue. I do NOT recommend that you bend the hooks out of the body at all. Weedless poppers are a wonderful thing, keep them that way. Just make sure to wait until you can feel the fish on the line. I hate to say it, but i am not sure i can ever fish any popper again that is not a spro popper. Braided line and a stout rod are a pretty good investment if you want to fish these.

A Weedless Popper!
I love frog fishing and I love to fish in the slop. I had noticed that when fishing in the really heavy, slimy, cheezelike cover, the fish dont even notice my frog unless I can get it to splash or plop. I had always seen the popper frog and finally decided to try one out. Im sure glad I did, because I love it! I am getting tons of strikes now where I wasnt getting them before.
At first I was getting a lot of missed hook sets until I realized I needed to open up the hooks a little. Once I bent the hooks out a little, my hook sets are no longer a problem. This frog has become one of my favorite baits!
