There are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom® baits. The difference is undeniable. Want proof? Just take a peek into your favorite tournament angler's tackle box and start counting the Zoom bags. For those who lay it on the line every time out, there can be no other choice. Every Zoom soft plastic bait is wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch (for the extra action needed to pull that reluctant money fish), and salt-impregnated to hold even the most tentative bite.

  • Realistic appearance
  • Super-soft to the touch
  • Extra action
  • Salt-impregnated
Zoom® Soft Plastic Baits - Horny Toad 4.7 5 146 146
Horney Toads are KILLER!! If you don't catch fish on anything else, you will with a Horny Toad. They are KILLER!! I do best with Green Pumpkin shades and Watermellon shades, White and Black. Great topwater action. Stick/insert type weights work well in heavy cover and deeper fishing. You can drag these bad boys through just about anything. and rattles make them especially tempting. #4 or #5 wide gap hooks work best giving a nearly automatic hook set. Hold on tight, fish whack it hard. May 7, 2006
Fantastic Fished Top Or Bottom I started using Zoom's H Toads this year, in 2012 and, man, have they ever surpassed my every expectation. I've caught loads of bass on them this spring and summer, fishing them weightless up top and also by adding a slip sinker and fishing them deep like a worm. Best colors for me have been bullfrog and red watermelon, but white has also produced on those odd days when no other color seems to work. Love these things... September 23, 2012
Nice Lure This is a pretty nice lure. Catches bass when they aren't hitting anything else. Most people use it as a surface lure but try letting it sink to the bottom, pulling up a ways, then letting it sink again. I find to have much more luck doing this. Especially when the bass are not rising. An advantage is that it casts very far. I prefer white or bull frog. I love the weedless design on it. It zips right through weeds. It will also glide or skip across weeds on the surface, acting like a frog which usually draws a strike. September 14, 2012
Spinnerbait trailer!! That heat spell in the midwest really turned local pond water green/yellow. Maybe 6 inches of visibility right now. I rigged a black Toad as a trailer on a spinnerbait and it worked! It added profile in the murky water and the flapping legs caused added water disturbance along with the churning blades.

A: 
The Zoom H Toad doesn't float; it will sink slowly using a weightless hook, but it doesn't take much speed to keep it on top and churning. Great bait; try it. Can also be fished deep like a worm, with good results. Works great for me.

They sink slowly when you stop reeling. I find they work best if you buzz them over pads and then pause just as you come off & let the toad sink. Have caught some seriously nice LMB this way.

It floats. However I have seen that if you leave it in place to long it starts to take on water. If this happens, once you start twitching it, it works it's way back to the surface. I squeeze the water out of it every 8-10 casts.

A: 
Yes, it is the best. I love this bait in the bullfrog color, I catch a TON of big bass on it. I rig it with a 3/0 Gamakatsu EWG Worm Hook, and I fish it on 30-lb braid. Fish it in an around lily pads, grass, wood, anything you think fish will be near. This also works in open water, so throw it everywhere. If you're going to be fishing in clear water, you can also try the white frog, and if you're going to be fishing at night, try the black.

Hope that helped.

A: 
I use both. If the fish want a smaller profile, or pressure is high, short strikes etc, the h*rny toad is better. if you want to make a bit more noise, the ribbit is best. I find the ribbit a bit tougher, so they last longer, but the hook up ratio is actually lower. The toad has a slot for the hook so there is less plastic to set through. the legs are flimsier so they don't interfere with the hook getting twisted in the bait during a crushing bite. They both work great, both get bit the same ammount, but I find more hook ups with the toad, though.

Weightless and flourocarbon line will get it down pretty smoothly. I fish it on the bottom and hop it along the weeds it sinks slowly with some 15lb line, and you will get some good fish this way when they stop hitting on top during the day.

A: 
Yes, they work great as a subsurface lure. The legs flap around under water and give it a nice action. It would probably work better on a weighted texas rig style hook rather than a jig head. Also, in shallow water you could fish it under water without the weight and simply let it sink. It is probably best like this when fish are less active.

Just put on a texas rig, without the weight. Reel it across the top and watch the legs splash on top of the water. Completely weedless and fun if the bass are really active on top.

A: 
There's no wrong way to fish it, but I like to hop it over pads and pause in any holes and on the edges. Let it sink as bass will hit it on the fall bit wait a second before you set the hook. If you set the hook too fast, they may only have the bait by the legs but a split second or two will allow them to re-position the frog. Also heavy line is a necessity so you can winch the big ones out of the weeds. Good luck!

A: 
1. In deeper water or steep bank, use a weighted swim bait hook to keep it deeper. Fish it slow, fast, retrieve/stop, jig, etc. Watermelon is good.

2. In weeds, moss, lilly pads, etc. (my favorite), use a non-weighted screw in type single or double frog hook no. 4 or 5. Skip, flip or cast light color toad in that money spot. Let it sink briefly and retrieve. The faster you retrieve the quicker it get and stays on top. They seem to be relatively weedless so let that hook come out the top of his back. When you find a hole in the moss or lilly pads stop and let him sink. I have caught quite a few on the fall. Use braided line and rip him out. White is pretty good!

Thread the hook through the nose then set the point just under the skin in the back with curved side of hook under the belly. I use it as a topwater bait.

A: 
You should texas rig it, then when you cast it out, you can retrieve it fast with the rod tip high so it's like a surface bait. The other way to fish it is to let it sink and you it below the surface. Either way it is effective and if rigged right is mostly weedless.

Texas rig it and retrieve it fast enough to get it on top. This is when the leg action stirs up the strikes. it's weedless so you can pull it over matted grass and lily pads. you can texas rig it with a weighted hook and fish it like a worm or a jig or slow rolled spinnerbait.

A: 
When in doubt, green pumpkin is an excellent go-to. Otherwise water clarity dictates what color to use. Low visibility - dark blue, black, grape, or junebug. Clear water - watermelon, watermelon candy (and also with red fleck). Murky/muddy water should utilize some chartreuse to help the fish zero in on the bait.

The bait won't last very long if you texas rig it. The bait will tear in 2 pieces. Buy the screw in type hooks. Screw into his nose and push the hook up through his back and let it stick out. You can texas rig with the screw in hooks if it is getting hung up.

Yes, gamikatsu size 5 ewg superlines will work, but if you use them, you may want to add a drop or two of superglue to the noes where it meets your braided line. The screw-type locking hooks designed for it are best, though. They keep it from sliding down the hook in heavy stuff.

A: 
Short answer: yes. Some people consider texas-rigging as how you make the bait weedless with a single hook, other consider it as that plus a free bullet wait on the line. I have never fished it with a weight, but I'm sure you could. Texas-rigging the hook is the recommended way to rig this bait.

A: 
Yes. use at least a 4/0 or 6/0 hook. Your best bet is to use something through the nose and then rigged weedless. Like the Zoom toad hook. I actually made some with screw ins and wide gap jig mold hooks. Helps with the hook set i think.

A: 
Screw the spring in through the "nose" of the frog, that's what holds the front of the frog on, no need to 'rig it'. I know this is an old post but it might help someone else.

I hate the toad hooks. I found these work best with a 5/0 EWG worm hook, texposed. The bait stays upright in the water.

A: 
twist the frog onto the screw until it is buried completely. now hook the frog on like you would a texas rig. run the hook through a few times to loosen up the hook hole for better hook up ratio. Not too much to make it flop out in the weeds, but enough to slide through pretty easily with a push of your finger.

A: 
screw it in all the way to the hook eye then you can rig the hook point. the spring holds the toad and helps prevent it from getting torn up as quickly by the bass, hopefully

A: 
Cork screw the spring lock into the bait right between where the eyes would be and then bring the hook up and through the bait just below the surface to make it weedless. When you go to change baits all you have to do is unscrew the toad and it does not tear it up. You can use the same rig for worms, lizards etc.

A: 
You don't need a spring lock hook, but you can definitely use them with frogs. The basic concept is to twist the spring into the front of the frog and bury the hook like you normally would. This should help keep the nose of the frog from getting too torn up to use.

A: 
I too twist the spring lock keeper into the nose of the bait, but when I bury the hook back into the bait the hook point is out of the back of the frog. Then I simply skin hook it so that it remains weedless. My frog rides with the belly split side down (which is the keeled side anyway) but the weight of the hook adds to the tracking ability of the frog.

A: 
I've fished these strictly on the surface, so I don't rig them Texas style. But the intended rigging with the zoom toad hooks is to twist the nose of the frog into the spring, then hook through so the point rests in the groove on the underside of the frog. When pulled over the surface, the frog rides groove side down, and as long as the point is in that groove, its weedless.
