Scum Frog® Popper
The best elements of the original, super-successful ScumFrog combined with a head-turning noisemaker that's sure to coax monster hawgs from all directions. Completely weedless design allows you to throw the ScumFrog Popper in thick cover without hanging or picking up moss. The ScumFrog Popper is the ticket for finicky bass or when conditions are less than optimal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GvilleFrogman awesome frogs These are by far the best frog for the money out there. I fish Lake Guntersville where we have lots of grass, milfoil, lily pads they can be fished slow, fast, popped. Theres nothing like having a bass explode on one. To extend the life off these frogs i put surgical tubing over the hook it keeps them from tearing so bad. Patience when they hit is the key gotta give them a second before you set the hook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NHLgolfer Best Topwater I got this frog a wile ago and just started using it this year. The frog works great in lily pads. The bass just love the frog and they hit the lure all the time, but the bass do not hang on; I've tried different ways of setting the hook and i've let them swallow the frog as well, and the hook barely sets. Only about 2/7 times the bass stays on, but the good thing is, is that they are nice sized bass. June 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by melvinthefisherman Great easy to use slaop lure I bought it just for why not bcus it was a cool looking lure. Been killing them on it this year and its fun fishing watching a bass miss it twice on top water only to have it strike it again. Can work in te thickest slop i ahve ever seen. Totally weedless and i threw it right into a tree and came out fine. easy to use to i was with a friend who never fished before and he landed a nice 3lb bass on it using a steady retrieve. I finally did lose it after it got caught on someone snapped 30 pound braid in a bush. and while the frog was floating there on the surface motionless i bass ate it. great lure June 10, 2012

A:you can use any skirt they have them like the skirts that come on them at bass pro shops
A:the one that comes with the frog and the hook is no as appealing nor does the hook work as good as the Bass Pro Frog Hook #4, Haven't lost a bass since I replaced.
The skirts I have used are multi colored Terminator brand skirts that have green that matches the frog, bright yellow and orange that is very effective for me.

A:These frog do come with a very good skirt and you can not put any normal skirt on these. They are great lures and they catch big fish. My buddy caught a four pound largie on this lure. The only issue is it is not too durable.
Details:I took this out the other day and on half my casts it landed upside down.
A:i put a loop of thin soldering wire around the hook and a piece of surgical tubing over the hook inside the frog. Should help with upside down landings.

A:i can usually get it to flip back over on retrieve almost instantly I dont think you can control it especially if throwing onto lilly pads or thick scum it lands how it lands but on the retrieve you can possibly straighten it out.
A:i never had this problem it usually stays upright because of the shape of the front, maybe yours is defective???
Details:I went fishing today at a local pond. On about the third or second cast, bam a bass. I caught about four fish but missed about 10. I read one may add some hooks to this lure to avoid misses. Which are these hooks? Thanks.

A:Extra hooks mean extra tangles and more frustration than missing, in my opinion.
A:i add no hooks and hook 95% of bites. If you yank to early thats when you lose the fish the back of the package says to wait 2 seconds i like to wait around 3 to 4 until it has pulled it under and i have never had a fish swallow it
A:To hook a fish it is all in the timing. If you count to 1 mississippi and set you won't miss too many

A:Get a Scum frog jr. It has a trailer hook included. See if it will hook onto the popper.

A:I've a few on my frogs too. The key to landing more bass is to wait just a second more than the strike. This is when the bass is taking the lure under water.
Count one second after the strike, set the hook. You'll have better luck getting the hang of that than adding a hook to these. You'll get caught up more because these aren't designed to have trailer hooks. They designed to be as weedless as possible & the spilt dual hook design works fairly decently.

A:The fact is if you add any kind of hook to it you will compromise the weedlessness. but if you want, you can add a trailer hook for a spinnerbait. you CAN always change the hook out completely with a next size up double hook, or even replace the hook with a treble hook. but the one thing that I do personally that seems to work well without messing with the weedlessness is just slide the hook back and offset it to one side off of the body a little. any one of them should work for you. Another thing that works for me is to squirt a little bass gravy inside the body. It makes em want to hold on longer. In fact that might be it too, when using a topwater always hesitate on setting the hook. give em a chance to hold it in the sweet spot then nail em. FISH ON!!!
