Hollow Body Frogs, Skirted Legs.

Recommended Posts

This past summer I experimented with different colored frogs. I found one that works for a specific lake. Do you guys have any tips for choosing frog colors with different light and water clarity conditions? For some reason i got this idea in my head that maybe bass will avoid a certain color of frog as if it were poisonous, is this possible? The frog pictured below is called a CorroBoree frog and its a poisonous frog also it looks similar to one of KVD's sexy frog's. Any Ideas?

In thick slop I don't think it makes a difference, but in open water it may.

I don't think it will matter, especially since that frog in the pic lives nowhere near where LMBass live.  Its from Australia. Same thing with similarly colored poison dart frogs.  If a bass cannot ever encounter one, there is no chance it will ever learn it is poisonous, and therefore would not avoid it.

The kvd frogs are my favorite frogs on the market, and the black and yellow is one of my best producers year in and year out. I typically use black or very dark colors in stained water and more of the natural/greens and browns for cleaner water.

I would be looking to use the closest color to the frog that lives on that body of water......when in the thick stuff I am always looking for an opening that the frog can be worked up to....that has been a very productive strike zone for me and one that they can hammer the whole frog....you will be surprised how patient they can be in stalking the frog to that point.

I personally don't worry much about frog colors except at night when I throw black ones. In daytime, as long as the belly is light colored I think it's good. I throw mostly white ones in daylight.

That's total opposite for me and my buddies here in FL. The frogs that we use we have all the luck throwing black frogs during the day and white ones at night.

I think frog color like any other bait can actually matter, especially in open water. It's not as important when on top of a mat because the fish can't see it all too well, but if your fishing the holes, scattered grass, or open water I've seen it make a big difference.

the waters that you are fishing will determine the type/color of frogs that you use. What I tend to do I that I try to match the color of my baits whether it be a crankbait or in this case a frog to the type of bait (frogs) in my area that I fish. IMO bass will attack something that they are familiar seeing so that's what I try to key in on when fishing and buying certain lures.

But there are exceptions like I have this certain type of paddle tail/hollow body frog that I use and for whatever reason during the day/sunlight black is the key and at night it is white... And I have never seen an all black or all white frog in my life outside of the zoo lol.

I have various belly colors, most are dark, light or mottles.  What I like is to be able to see the frog, so I like a colorful back.

I'll use any color frog, as long as it's black. If that doesn't work I'll also use black.

I love to frog fish, it's my absolute favorite way to catch'em. I use a wide variety of colors, the one in this pic is a Bronzeye Jr in Outback. That has been an absolute fantastic color for my local lakes.
