Thread: Frog Imitation

  1. #1

    Default Frog Imitation

    I have been fishing a local pond that is loaded with large bass. Problem is they only seem to like large baits. Last night I managed to catch a couple smaller bass on a wolly bugger but the big ones were only caught with frog baits thrown on a spinning rod. Any frog imitation ideas. I am talking big largemouth in the 4-8# range. I had my 6wt last night but plan on moving up to the 8wt the next time out.

    Here's a post from the site, it has variations of frog patterns. I use mcfly's pattern and it works well.

    If you google stp frog pattern there is a site that has the printout for the body in 3 different sizes.

    Try tying up some gurglers with green foam.I really like gurglers for large topwater patterns.They are simple to tie and cast well on lighter rods.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    any topwater or diver should work, but A double gurgler or a tapply bass bug would be great choices.

    Unfortunately, these bass want something big. Smaller poppers aand bugs have been so so. I think s big foam frog imat. should do the trick.

    I tie my bendback Dahlberg Divers on 3/0 saltwater hooks....they're fairly big and any topwater fly moving along the surface looks larger than it is.

    that frog popper is on a size 2/0 hook. it should be big enough lol im a big fan of gurglers too, i just dont have any luck catching monster bass on them. i always catch the jumbos on big, loud, obnoxiuos poppers.
