Like others, it varies by season and body of water but if memory serves, last year I threw from most often to least often:

 

1: Weightless Senko or Fat Ika, texas rigged

2: Topwater (popper or prop bait equally split)

3: Tube

4: Finesse worm 

5: wacky rigged worm or Senko

 

PS, I fished mostly largemouth last year; most years I target smallies and the baits change accordingly.

Is there a time in the year where a wacky trick worm beats a tx-rigged trick worm? different actions I know

I thought there was once upon a time. But usually, when fish would bite the wacky one, you could just drop the weightless T Worm into the same places. I honestly don't wacky rig much anymore. When I first started using the T Worm I only used it like a jerkbait because the guy I was fishing with did it that way. Then I noticed my kayak buddy was catching big bass on it just dragging slowly. Nobody told him it was a jerkbait. A light went off. Now I'll pitch that sucker under docks, limbs, beds and around any piece of wood I can find and just let it sink. You can sometimes pitch it to a specific fish and watch him chomp it. Sometimes I'll T rig it with a bullet weight, especially in cold weather, but usually it just stays tied on a spin combo weightless.

 

But to answer a question you didn't ask, a wacky T worm works as well as a stick worm for me. And there's less bulk to the worm to keep you from hooking up.

 

I know we've discussed this bait before, but if you held a gun to my head and said "Catch a fish" I'd grab the Trick Worm.

Hey, not to derail the thread, but I what are you throwing that Padcrasher junior with? Tried on the rod I normally frog with. Just didn’t work out well. 

I used spinning rods, 7' medium-heavy Abu vigilante for the mats, and a 6'6" medium Abu vengeance for dock skipping and open water.  Both ran almost a full power stiff.  I preferred the medium (fished like medium-heavy) rod for open water as it was easier to walk the frog with.  Both were spooled with 20 or 30 pound braid.

 

That being said, I plan to do most of my frogging next year (90% of the time with junior pad crashers) with my new 735c dobyns fury paired with a curado 70.  I'll keep using the spinning rods when the bass are tucked way back up underneath docks though, cause I can skip farther with a spinning rod.

I love me some Frogging, that's probably the favorite way to catch fish.

1. Frogs

2. Pitching T-rigs/Jigs

3. Weightless plastics and jerkbaits

4. Other topwater 

5. Spinnerbait

6. Dropshot

7. Swimbaits

 

Other things don't get used too much. Not a big crankbait guy just due to the grassy lakes around me, trying to get more into that. I am really intrigued by Glide Baits and want to pick up a few to try out for next season. I like the look of that Onimasu on TW and the S-wavers seem good.
