Who Uses Yum Money Hound?

Recommended Posts

I appreciate the concept. I was wondering if it delivers, i.e.hook up ratio. Anybody used them?

Never tried em, but they had a sale at wally-world couple weeks ago where the money hounds were like a dollar for a whole pack...

This guy does. Essentially a walk the dog or zara spook type of bait without the rattles. They cast incredibly far. I have only used the smaller size. The hook up ratio is going to be similar to hollow body frogs. The biggest plus is that you can throw them in areas where weeds grow to the top and cast them incredibly far as I stated before. Aside from that it gives fish a slightly different look than say a spro frog. A few years back I had some great days using them especially for size of fish.

I've gotten some blow ups with them, but have had trouble with hook-ups. If you're fishing super thick lily pads or other grass, they are definitely worth a try. Completely weedless.

I have used them and will echo the hook up percentage isn't great but 40% is better than 0% because you can't really throw to many things where these will go.

 

They do cast a mile and are completely weedless and surprisingly easy to walk the dog with.

I've only used them on a couple of occasions but I really like them.  They are as weedless as any bait out there, they walk the dog really well and I didn't find the hook ups to be any worse than a toad style bait or a regular frog.  I will definitely use them again.

A really wide gap hook is a must for them. I like them and fish them on the same gear I fish my frogs on.

That's a good point. I use a big 6/0 heavy duty wide gap hook with them. Anything smaller there is too much plastic for the hook to get through, which was part of my hookset problem to begin with!

I also found the hook-up rate comparable to a hollow body frog. Up here in the northern parts the pike eat um like candy, especially when your bass fishing. They will cast a mile, however casting farther than a reasonable hook-set and retrieval is seldom good.
