Hollow body Baits

Recommended Posts

I have one of eight rod and reels dedicated to using hollow body frogs that I  use when around the FP-13 slop.

I have been eyeing the blue gill imitation baits and like the concept of the predator seeing the silhouette of a gill vs. frog. Anyone have any experience with these baits?

I have one on order but not sure how much action it will see this year as our season is rapidly coming to a close.

Have not used mine but just know that a good portion of the underside of the bait is just plain, unpainted lead, but any birds flying over should get to see that really nice bluegill paint job!

Yea, I saw the unpainted led on the bottom side, but a jar of testers paint that I already have is a easy fix.

That really is kind of irritating. It looks so great on the top. Don't know why they only went halfway.

Tackle companies are fishing for the species that only see lures from above the water. :)

Lol, nicely put. That's the obvious reason, but I'm still baffled why they would go halfway on such a hyped up bait. Guess they just didn't care.

 Not nearly as bad as I thought, Same color both sides except the added hooks.

 A little black or white paint and its all good.

 Not the color I was interested in as much as the silhouette in the water.
