Hey guys, I am new to hollow body frog fishing. I have been researching different hollow body frogs and have narrowed it down to two options.

I would get livetarget frogs, I just don't like their all natural color selection. I am not crazy about getting spros because of hearing of bad hookups and water coming into the frog. Deps are too expensive for me, and the jackall iobee frogs don't seem to be all that good. Maybe snag proof Bobby's perfect frogs would work well.

I already use Stanley ribbit frogs as my soft bodied frogs and rebel frog-r's as my hard bodied frogs. I love both of them.

I need some advice on whether to get some Snag Proof Ish's Phat Frogs, or to get some Booyah Pad Crashers. What have you guys used, what are your opinions?

I really like the pad crashers myself, they aren't expensive and they are the softest yet toughest I've used.

I have started to use booyah pond crashers recently. I have used Koppers frog for years and I recommend those as well. Going back to the booyahs, I was using one a couple of days ago and a decent bass blew up on it. After I set the hook and fought and released the fish, I looked at my frog and it was ripped in half. I have another booyah frog  that I have caught few fish on one being 6lbs +  and its still going strong. I cannot say that the booyah frogs will not hold up well because of one incident. However, saying that, if another one rips in the near future after less than 5 fish caught on it, then I will strictly fish Koppers only. Hope that helps.

It's very hard to beat Booyah. Soft, good hooks, and $6.

I've found the Ish frogs easier to walk, and they don't fill up with water like the pad crashers do.

I completely agree with the above. Ish's phat frogs are VERY easy to walk, at least for me, and they do not take on water.

Have you guys fished the Snag Proof Ish's Phat Frogs, or just the Booyah Pad Crashers?

I've used both. Denser cover I use the crasher, if there are big open stretches between pads I use the ish.

Haven't used ish,but have used spro for many years. The Booyah pad crasher appears to be a much better frog than the spro. Last MUCH longer and is Much less expensive than spro. Now I'll have to try an ish.

Anyone ever used the Snag Proof Bleedin' Frog? I am about to win one on eBay. Thanks

I have a frog tied on a rod and on my deck about 8 months out of the year, it's one of my absolute favorite baits and have caught countless big fish on them. Although not as flashy as some of the newer ones, I always keep going back to the Snag Proof Bobby's Perfect Frog. It has hands down the best hook up ratio of any frog, soft and supple to decompress and yet still very weedless. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
