Oh they will eat a frog, you just have to figure out how the fish want the frog.

Topwater.  When it's really warm, light is low and things are calm, a non-popping frog is usually my go-to.

Well I'm just saying any walking-type frog with the pointy face.  Most brand name frogs offer both types.  Popping-type frogs have the big open cup face and they make a lot of noise.  When it's quiet I like to be on the quiet side while still making some disturbance wiggling them through the weeds.

try buzzing a horney toad then kill it when you hit pockets of open water.

I 've used this tactic with great results

You have Spro, Snag Proof, Live Target.  I fish Snag Proof Ish frogs, Spro bronzeye Shad, and then also fish a Deps Slither Frog.  I'd stick to basic colors, one black and one with a white belly.  Learn to walk them like a spook.  A bait like a horny toad is another one you might try and buzz across the weeds.  Only other options is to get yourself a punching set up and punch though that stuff and go get them.....but that's a whole different outfit and post for another time.

If it's almost dark, I'd throw a black bait simply because they can see the outline of the bait looking up.  Migh also try one of the Snag Proof Buzz Frogs as well.

I throw same thing early morning or late evening but depends on weather... In summer you can't go wrong with frogs.. If you can't get bit on hollow body frogs like spro bronze eye shad or booyah pad crashers, try buzz frogs like Stanley ribbit frogs..

When the sun is less than a 30 degree angle from the horizon light rays no longer bend to luminate underwater. Bass are primarily sight feeders and can see very good in low light and that gives then an advantage over most prey. Early morning and late afternoon gives predator bass the opportunity to hunt so try to match whatever prey is abundant the bass are targeting. Reaction type lures may be a better choice depending on the prey type.

Some days they are on a morning bite

Some days they are on a mid-day bite

Some days they are on a evening bite

this is the gist of it. I went out to a small pond sunday morning. Was calm and overcast, around 40F. A couple weeks ago i fished this pond and did great (5 LMB 2.5 to 4lbs and a 4lb smallie). I felt i figured out where they were at. Sunday morning i threw everything at them. Not one bite. I thought i was going to have a great morning. This was the first early morning on that pond. So this may be 100% what i was experiencing. Sometimes you get them, sometimes they get you.
