Summer Time Frog Fishing

When you head out to try your luck at frog fishing the first thing that comes to mind is that we need to find the grass and look for the holes in the mats; while this is a productive pattern for frog fishing its not the only pattern. It’s also a pattern that 99% of frog fisherman target making the grass the high-volume fishing spots. There are other locations that a frog is very productive in and finding them can lead you to some trophy bass.

Get off the beaten path find something that is different yet holds explosive frog fish and you can really be have fun in the summertime. Many times, the first place I target when I try to get off the grass is docks, the walk way out to the dock is ideal shade and always holds bass. If you have every noticed the walk way always seem to hold blue gill making that location ideal easy feeding for bass. If the walk way has some decent depth it even becomes more impressive for the frog bite. Bass generally run these walk ways in the high sun part of the day making them ideal shady locations for frog fishing. Have you ever noticed that sea-walls seem to hold bass, they always seem to be up next to the wall feeding and looking for that next meal? The reason is seawalls have shade and as the sun rises the wall protects them from the sun drawing bait and food for bass.

One thing that constantly changes in any lake is the bank structure, erosion, from wind, rain and waves cut out the banks and create great hiding spots from the sun. Bass target these cut out banks to get out of the sun, pitching a frog into these cut outs is as good as it gets; you can skip the frog into the darkest part of the cut-out bank where there is bait and bass hiding from the sun. This can really be explosive as bass just react and strike under the eroded areas testing your hooking skills and skipping techniques. Target the banks, the eroded areas, the fallen trees along them and you have the ideal area for summertime frog bites.

Try something new, fish something different and have a blast frog fishing with your SPRO frog!
