Best frog for my conditions

Recommended Posts

I have been an occasional frog user but I now have 2 nice froggin rigs.so I'm doing it more.I plan to use one for slow topwater,and the other for cast and retrieve.What I'm looking for in a frog:

1. Must be as weedless as possible.

2.Must have good casting distance

3.Must have a good hook-up up ratio.

4.Must be liked by the fish.!

I realize there will probably be one for each application.

I use zoom horny toads for cast and retrieve.They get me a few fish.Theyre the one I have some success with at least.

Thanks,Mike

I like the horny toads and rage tail toads on a straight retrieve. The spro or booyah if you want one that's weedless and walks

booyah pad crasher and popping pad crashers are hard to beat for the money and meet your criteria!

I find that the Booyah Pad Crasher is hard to beat. I've bought a lot of different brands but always end up with the Pad Crasher. For toads, I get consistently good results with the Zoom Horny Toad in white.

what color(s) would be best for fairly clear water with the pad crasher?

Bullfrog, Cricket frog, Leopard frog, Swamp frog would be my suggestions.

I usually use the June bug horny toads esp in low light conditions.Ive caught a few on two old top water frogs that I've had for so long I've forgotten who made them.They are green.

For HB frogs my vote will always go to LiveTargets. They may be a bit pricier but they have better hooks and will last you a lot longer than some of the other frogs on the market today. I know this because I have thrown several of the popular brands. As far as colors I keep that very simple. I throw frog colors that have white or off white bellies with no bright colors on their bottom side. For your toads, I really don't have a brand preference, for that of frog,  who ever sells them cheaper gets my business. :)

My favorite frog is the Poppin Pad Crasher in the Aqua Frog color, or Shad Frog kills too.

Went to Academy sports last night to get them and they didn't have any.Web site says they carry them.

So I settled for more senkos and a pack of ribbett frogs.
