Savage Gear Frogs and Mice

Recommended Posts

Since there's still a ton of snow and ice up here, this is a "looks and feels" review.  Dicks is having 6 for $25 deal on Savage Gear frogs and mice (the weedless frog type).  Got 2 regular frogs, 2 popping frogs and 2 mice, all in both sizes they offer.  The hooks are sticky sharp but canted inward a bit, especially on the mice.  The will need a bit of bending for sure.  The skirt material is more of a fine cut rubber.  The bodies are close to a Pad Crasher in softness/thickness.  They appear to have a fairly deep/keeled body on the frog.  The all seem like really good quality products.  The tiny yellowish gray mouse screams "mole that fell in".  Now if Spring would show up... 

 

 

 

 

Also picked up a couple of the Jawbone sunfish... Really really nice.

I picked up one of those frogs a few weeks ago, looked like it would walk pretty good, won't know much until I can get it out on the water.

I fished the regular SG frogs a bit last year, and you're right that the hooks do need bent for better hookups. Excited to try the popping frog, since that's my preferred type of frog. Had a blowup on the mouse last week in some cattails but it didn't get the bait for me to try to test the hooks out. 

The frogs I was fishing last year were really durable, which has been a bit of an issue for me with the Pad Crashers, but not enough to get me to stop buying since they're one of my most effective frogs.

How were the hooks on your jawbone sunfish? I bought one and didn't look too closely at it until later and both hookpoints were rolled. Also bought one of their frogs and hookpoints were straight, but dull.

No real issues with the sunfish.  Not the sharpest ever, but nothing a couple strokes of a file couldn't fix.
