I think a smallmouth would hit it but I highly doubt you will fish that type of a frog where smallmouth are going to be. I did get one on a Yum buzzfrog but that is an entirely different bait. Smallies will hit the same baits largemouths hit but I have yet to see a smallmouth in thick weedbeds underneath mats, but if you want to see try throwing the frog around boulder strewn flats in the early morning on a lake that has a population of smallies.

I once caught a 3# smallie on a Bronzeye 65 Tropical White. Skipped it under an overhang and he was there. Wasn't a reaction strike either, as I walked it about four times before he hit it.

Smallie WILL demolish a frog, but like Smalljaw said, you will doubtfully fish it where smallie live.

Te smallie I got last night was in thick weeds but came on a jig flipping it into "holes" in te weed bed.

Now I have caught a lot of smallmouth on horny toads but they were Texas rigged with a 3/8 bullet weight around beaver dams and other log jams in the river by me that's loaded with smallmouth.

Last week a buddy got a 3.5 on a little Spro Popper in 1 fow up in the weeds on Champlain. Our hypothesis was that it was adopted by the Largemouths and never told that it was adopted or shown a mirror.

I have caught one on a full size Spro frog, a decent one too. 4.5lbs, but just that one. I have also caught a couple on zoom horny toads. Where I like to frog fish most of the time is not prime smallmouth habitat. The one good one I did get on it, hit it in 7-8 feet of clear water, with a rocky bottom and scatterd grass. I just wanted to see if I could........and I did. I would rather fish spooks and poppers though, all those extra hooks help with smallmouth.

Never caught one on a frog and I'd have to agree that rarely are there many smallmouth in the places I'd fish a frog.

Smallies will hit just about anything at times. I'm sure they will hit frogs, but again I don't fish frogs in smallie type areas.

I have caught a lot of smallmouth while largemouth fishing in places you would think they never be.

i don't see why they would not hit a frog but it is defintely not my first choice.
