What brand frog and color do you use and why?

Recommended Posts

I'm a little overwhelmed by all of the types and colors of  artificial frogs there are! I was in my local BassPro and Dicks the other day with the intention of buying a couple of frogs but my brain melted with all of the choices in brand and color.  So my question to you guys and girls: what is your favorite brand and color of frog, and then part 2 of the question, why? What makes one better than another?

I've found most of the major brands (Booyah, Strike King, LiveTarget) to be about the same in terms of quality/performance.  I get whatever's cheap or readily available.

 

I really only care about bottom colors... I get a yellow-ish one, white, and black.  I fish mainly the yellow and black (match the hatch, so to speak) and save the black for really dark mornings or nights.

I find myself only fishing a few different frogs.  First, the Snagproof frogs (Phat Frog, Fred's Frog, and Poppin Phatty).  All walk very easy, don't take on water, and come in a few different colors that other companies don't have. Found myself mainly using a few colors, white, black, smoke, and platinum/clear).  Next would be the Spro Bronzeye Shad.  Love the baitfish colors and walks easy as well as a great hook up ratio and like the skirt set up on these frogs.  Now off to the Deps Slither K.  Great little frog and the rabbit fur tail gives it great action and walks like a champ as well as it doesn't take on water.  Pricey but well worth it.   Then the Optimum Furbit, as it also has the rabbit fur legs and gives the fish something different to look at.  Keep it simple.  Few baitfish colors on the Brozeye Shad, black and white with others, and a few with some metal flake flash or transparent.  Best advice about frog fishing, learn to walk them, every model and brand you fish, and carry a few different sizes and styles.

Good ol scum frog. 5/8 oz, Black in color. Has a better hook up ratio than other frogs imo. The downside of that is that it gets torn up easier because of the softer material, but it take a lot of fish to wreck it.

I've got about twenty different makes. I prefer the live targets because they have a wider profile and seem to walk easier. IMHO

 

I've noticed little difference in color.

Regular frogs: KVD sexy frog, Savage gear lily ninja.

 

Popping frog: Spro, Booyah pad crasher

 

Colors: Like others have said, I only pay attention to the belly and its either white or black. To be honest I have yet to find a situation where color makes that much difference throwing frogs. It really doesn't matter.

River to Sea Bully Wa and Snagproof"s Poppin Phatty are my go to frogs and always in a darker color. Used to throw Spro Bronzeyes a lot but for some reason my hookup ratio was terrible until I switched over. Probably just a confidence thing but I don't throw Spro frogs anymore.

The only hollow body frog I have is a Booyah Pad Crasher in sunburn kind of a brown with a slight reddish tint. It has reddish spots and a chartreuse line down each side of the back and the bottom is a solid brown/reddish tint. Haven't had total success with it yet but have gotten the bites. Why I got it is it was affordable and the only color they had at the time I got it. Gonna check out some Academy H2O Express frogs tomorrow.
