Capt Ken Daubert's Bass Frog

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine just got back from a fishing expo in NC and stumbled across this frog (and bought 2 of course). I'm just curious if anyone has had any experience with it? Ken Daubert's custom made frogs go for $50. Evidently, he got a company to mass produce these for him for $10 each. Either way, I'm curious if BR memebers have tried these since I have a few months of ice left in Kansas City. http://www.bass-frog.com/

The clones are kind of well known secret in kayak fishing circles, if you catch my drift. I don't care for his hooks, you can find similar hooks from gam. or Owner. Interesting sidebar....Ken invented the Banjo Minnow. Don't let that stop you from trying out the frogs though.

I thougt you'd chime in but didn't want to call you out. I thought the "hooking mechanism" looked familiar...

Yeah, those hooks suck. Ken fishes his frogs with a softer, slower, longer rod than most. He doesn't have to contend with setting the hook through the plastic body of a typical frog. Most guys will tie this frog on their "frog rod" and break the hook. I'm not fixing the rod, so I'll just upgrade the hook.  Don't go crazy though, you'll sink the frog's cute face.

But, I'll be totally honest, I haven't used these a ton - just enough to catch 20 or so fish, tear one frog up, and see that they work.

I knew that would come up.  :P
