Froggin Right around the Corner

As the mats start to show on the grassy lakes one of the first presentations that comes to mind is working a SPRO frog over, around or in the grass. There is no bait like it; people come from all parts of the country to do some frog fishing; as the excitement is unmatched in any type of bass fishing. It really doesn't matter what type of fishing your use too; once a largemouth bass explodes through the grass and pulls down a frog you're a fan for life.

The only real technique in frog fishing has a lot to do with understanding where to fish the different frogs and what bass need to attack it. There are just a few types of frog presentations they are commonly referred to as popping-frogs walking frogs and pushing frogs. These three cover all types of conditions allowing you to find a way to get an explosion over or around the grass. The one weather condition that I like the best is when it's a little windy as it allows you to use a popping frog and the ripples cause the bait to group up making that presentation lots of fun when there is some wind. I believe a key objective in frog fishing is to make sure your frog can be seen from underneath so there are some things that make this happen.

As mentioned one of these is the wind, when the wind blows the bait gathers up and schools and has the bass looking up for feeding around the edges of the grass. Combine the sound of a popping frog along with the bait schooling and you have a great condition for frog fishing. The next is the bait action, the walking frog allows you to walk the dog over the edges and open holes in the grass; this walking action is just deadly especially when the frog sits in place and moves back and forth over a basses head. These techniques has been widely used for many top water baits combine it with a weed less frog on a calm, hot sunny day and you have the ingredients to catch some really big bass.

It won't be long the frog bite will be upon us; the fun part of the year is close get those SPRO frogs out and let's have some fun. SPRO frog Tournament set for 11/7/17 on Guntersville; get your early entry today at
