Lunkerhunt Prop Frog

Recommended Posts

Just recently tested this frog out......liked it.

 

ive always been wanting a weedless, floating, buzzing, top water, and this frog fits that niche perfectly.

 

nonetheless, since it has “mechanical” legs, one can expect the rotating legs to get fouled up on occasion by slop or floating bits of debris

 

Other than that....it looks good, floats good, runs good....good bait.  

 

we’ll see how the fish like it

Saw that today. Not sure how well it will work. 

 

 

If it doesn’t work out for you try the new Booyah Toad Runner. 

 

 

And if that doesn't work out for you make your own homemade Teckel Sprinker Frog.

I bought one of the frogs and the prop shads. The shad makes a very small commotion, almost hard to tell it's doing anything. The frog makes a much greater disturbance and tracks well with the double spinning props. Looking forward to giving them both a try when it warms up enough to actually catch something on them.

you should give the scum frog bigfoot a try if youre looking for a weedless floating buzz frog.

Already have last year.....didn’t like it

 

also didn’t like the Damiki Air Frog

 

the Stanley Top Toad is the only other specimen that I do like.

Yeah I passed on the prop shad due to its lack of commotion.   But I may consider it if I have need for something more subtle

I saw the Lunkerhunt prop baits and I was interested in the DSG/F&S exclusive prop turtle. There are so many turtles in my local pond it just makes sense to have a turtle bait.

 

What stops me is the double prop. I think back to how many times I have to clean my Whopper Popper prop from debris last season. I would think a double prop would be twice the amount of work.

I would pass on the turtle, for the purpose of “matching the hatch” per say.

 

I suspect, that despite a large population of turtles, the fish’s primary food source will still be things like craws and fish.  You’d probably be better served to continue matching that hatch instead.

 

However, for the general purpose of creating topwater commotion, with a larger profile....then I suspect the turtle should attract fish just fine.  Provided the legs don’t get fouled up

I'd wondered about it. I almost pulled the trigger on one the other day but passed since I hadn't heard anything about it yet. Thanks for the quick info. Let us know your results.

The lunkerhunt lures have been notorious for sinking and filling with water, and not being durable, so proceed with caution.

Well....it’s been so far so good.  No sinking yet, and if durability is an issue...I bought four.

I haven't been impressed with Lunkerhunt products so far (Spinnerbaits and the original Frog kind of sucked) but, man, that Prop Turtle is calling to me...
