Ribbit Frogs

Recommended Posts

Instead of using the double take hooks, can I improvise with one single 5/0 EWG hook?

Would it be dumb to throw these to docks??

I use 4/0 EWG, never had a problem. 

 

Throw them to every dock post you can find.

I NEVER use the double hooks on the ribbits. I use a 4/0 Twist lock EWG hook. Owner makes a REALLY good one (the angle of the barb is PERFECT and sits right on the frog). The twist lock is essential to keeping the bait useable. I land multiple fish on one frog.

I use these almost every outing.. make sure you use a twist lock it will help make the bait last longer imo

I use a 4/0 EWG without a problem. The twistlocks will make them last longer though. Fish them along and under any dock you can get at.

If they are around the floating ribbits are money with a 4/0.

I bought to packs yesterday of the Ribbits and looked at the 4/0 and 5/0 Owner EWG plus hooks. To me the 5/0 seemed just a hair to long and could almost go all the way between the legs without having to run through the lure.  The 4/0 got into the lure with plenty of meat and seems perfect IMHO.

I've always used 4/0 ewg on Ribbits and they area large enough. I personally have no confidence in double hooks and wouldn't consider them for this lure. Like others, I use keeper hooks to make each bait last longer.

Black when in brighter conditions and white when in darker (overcast) conditions.

Not to HJ.. But since we're on topic, if throwing around docks and sparce cover, would 14 mono be alright
