Stanley Jigs® Top Toad Hollow Body Frog
Stanley Top Toad
These Stanley Top Toads produce violent strikes! I often tie one on for my clients while guiding for them; they are effective and very easy to fish. Nothing gets a client more excited about their fishing trip than seeing big fish blow up on one of these Toads! The real advantage to this Toad over a Ribbit is that you can let it sit still instead of having to constantly move it as required with the Ribbit....
Hope this helps some.

Great twitch bait
The Top Toad is one of my favorite new baits. I love that it floats so that i can twitch it to entice strikes. I also like the Ribbit, but sometimes think I have to reel it a little too fast to keep it on top. I also like that top toad is hollow so that it floats when I stop it, rather than sink like the Ribbit or many other soft frog baits. I also think my hook up ratio is better because the body is hollow. One tip- in my experience the Double Take hooks are too heavy or maybe the screw near the eye lets water in and cause the top toad to sink slowly. I like a 5/0 extra wide gap hook. I also think this bait is a little tougher than many soft frog baits and think I catch a few more fish before it goes to pieces

Great Stop & Go Frog
I have always fished the Ribbit Frog, fast across the thick mats, and stopped on the edge, and let it fall, for great strikes, but the Top Toad, makes the same noise, but when I stop it ....Wham....I tore up bassl up to 7 lbs. the first time I used it....The hook up is great, and the 5/0 double hooks, fit this lure perfect. I only bought 2 pkgs. to give them a try, but have reordered several pkgs. to make sure I don't run out....which I did on the 2nd. day
