Frog Fishing In Muddy Water.

Recommended Posts

Ok so today I fished the Gila river here in AZ and laid waste. I went 31 for 36 frog fishing. Ill put pics up later. Probably the best frog fishing day I ever had. Biggest fish 4lbs lost a giant right at the shore but oh well. Was casting along these dead bushes that line the entire river let the frog land and the rings disappear then twitch the bait in a walking motion but only make it go one way. Then make it go the other a few seconds later then just twitch in the same spot then slowly move it forward and they would inhale it. I fished the west side of the main bridge and the water was a lot clearer up there and ran out of shoreline to fish after a good 2 mile hike. So I went to the east side and it was like chocolate milk. Didn't get another bite. I was just curious if any of you had any tips for frogging in the muddy water or if anyone even does that. I been frogging for a good 10 years possibly my favorite technique. From Michigan to Alabama. I feel like im pretty good at it but never ran across a lake that was half clear and half muddy. If anyone has any tips that would be great. Thanks.

Love me some frog fishing. When the water's muddy I go to a pop frog and try to keep it moving, while trying to keep it in the same place. I think this lets them home in on it while not having to chase it. Hope that makes sence. Brian.

I thought about a popping frog but for 1 don't have any for some reason. And two I only brought the one tied to my rod lol thinking I might get a couple but not as many as I did,. Glad I didn't break off.

I have fished these type of conditions before. This is the only time I will use brighter colored frogs with an aggressive retrieve. I do not fish with popping frogs, however if done correctly a regular hollowbody frog can make alot of commotion. I still look for moderate to dense cover and make as much noise that I can. The hits in this situation are really explosive. Not the most ideal water conditions for frogging but it can be done.

X2. This and a Black frog. I don't think there's a bad time to have a frog tied on.

I go to a popping frog because it causes a little more disturbance and go with black!

Sounds like an outstanding trip! I am incredibly envious right now. I absolutely LOVE fishing frogs for bass but my local waters are too cold for frogging right now (or at least they seem to be). I'm going to start again in the spring and I REALLY can't wait.

Insert a glass rattle into your frogs.....gives it a little bit more noise.
