Scum Frog® Trophy Series
A definite big fish bait! This meal-sized frog is equipped with long, supple filament legs, for kicking action no other bait can duplicate. Fish with short twitches in the heavy stuff; in open water, you can easily impart a natural bobbing, swimming motion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by unclefishbass Great Frogs These frogs are one of the best I have ever used. The hooks do not rip the body apart unless a pike hits them. They are the only ones that work letting them just sit by the heavy cover. August 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimdhopeme top water fun This weedless frog produced lots of hits in lilly pads and thick grass. Bass and pickerel really go for it. July 24, 2012

Details:I have the original kind but wondering if I should go for these from now on.
A:Yes, The weight of them will help in the presentation
A:I have had more success with the trophy model. The longer skirt style legs really seem to help attract the fish. They could actually be longer. Also, you can get them In a little heavier weight and this is great for getting way back in the thick stuff and punching a fish catching hole. I have not tried the popping model but plan on getting one soon.
A:yea get one that looks more realistic
A:Definitely worth the money. It presents a larger "meal" and target. It casts farther and sits in the water like a real frog.
A:Oh, yes, it is worth it; I used the trophy scum in MN and caught a haul of bass & pike, it's probably the best frog i've used, and I've used Spro & Koppers
Details:I ve had this lure for a year now and i have only caught one fish with it.
A:Best advice is to not try to set the hook to quick. Let the fish take it down before setting the hook. Fish it SLOW. Repeat SLOW. There are times when you can fish it fast but, I have always caught more when fishing it slow. Land it on a lily pad and drag it off. Let it sit 30-60 seconds. Hop him across the surface a foot or so. Let it sit again. I have caught a lot of fish with this routine. Also, don't give up on your spot too soon. Doesn't get much more fun in freshwater fishing than using a frog.
A:when they strike wait a couple seconds before setting the hooks then hang on
A:walk the dog
throw it in the lilly pads or weeds

A:I usually cast the frog right on the bank where there are weed beds,then hop it into the water using short hops. Most fish nail it after two or three hops. If in large weed beds I continue hopping to the edge of the weeds and deeper water. When a fish explodes on it,don't panic,reel up the slack pointing the rod towards fish and set the hook hard.
A:when around weed beds and grasses let it sit and twitch it every few seconds and jerk it every 10 second.in the open water lightly jerk it simutaneousley and stop every few jerks. just hold becuase the hits will be treamendous. just wait 2 seconds before u set the hook.hold on tight
A:yes since you don't see frogs during the winter i wouldn't recommend using it during the winter but for spring summer and early fall by all means use the frog
A:I only get strikes in Spring on it. (Vermont)
A:lilly pads are good for me if there are large bass. too big for small ones. So sometimes I throw for northern near docks and sand bars here in Illinois suburbs. There are not too many big bass.
A:honestly just throw it it mostly works over grass, lilly pads, and any other veg on the surface but i caught 2 today in open water and presentation look up walking the dog
A:walk the dog in the weeds or lilly pads
A:I use it near shore and around weed beds during most of the year early in the morning is the best time when they are feeding on shad

A:The best way to fish this lure is to pop it along the surface among some lily pads, letting the lure sit still for a moment when it gets to a gap in the weeds.

A:Throw it out into the snaggiest brush or really heavy weeds and hop hop pause. Try this over and over with variations in speed and the bass will let you know what they like. I will even twitch it in the same spot sometimes and get nailed.
