Stanley Jigs Ribbit Frog
Best topwater frog
I love these things! They are just as good as more expensive frogs at a more reasonable price. I like the hook slot that extends the length of the frog. I also think that I reel these frogs a little slower than some others. I find them to be a little more durable but don't expect to catch more than 3-5 fish per frog. I used a 5/0 extra wide gap hook. I would also recommend using some hitchhikers to screw into the nose of the frog and then attach to the hook eye. This will make your frog last longer. Don't forget to stop it at the edge of the vegetation or pop it with rod or reel every once in a while. The slow fall can be deadly! Get some you'll be glad you did!

I got this frog for christmas and it works great during spawning period. The legs are great the way they paddle even when your not reeling hard. I reconmend getting a 7:1.1 reel and 7 1/2 to 8 foot medium heavy to heavy rod when fishing the bait.65lbs test with a bass pro shop extreme baitcast reel. Also you need a good hook so stay with the new stanly wedge V hook or the zoom horn toad hook. Stay with 4/0 or 3/0 hooks. With the new stanly hook they rigged the hook with a weight so when you are fishing grass and you find a hole you can drop it in thereand 9 times out of ten the bass will eat it. another rigging you can try along with the texas rig is to add a gamagatzu EWG treble hook as a trailer hook. All you do is take a set of wire clipper and clip one of the hooks off and then skin hook the treble so every thing is weedless. That rig is just when the bass are short striking the bait.One last thing is that if they don't bait it on top you can swim it with the weighted head and swim it like a spinner bait. This bait is so versitile it is the best frog on the markket.

Best soft plastic frog
I fished a lot of soft plastic frogs this year, and this out produced the others hands down.
The pigeon-toed design of this bait puts out more splash and noise than the HornyToad and the BuzzFrog, and caught more fish.
My only complaint is that it usually gets destroyed by the first smallmouth that hits it, so be prepared to go through several baits.
This is a great weedless alternative to buzzbaits and other topwaters.
