Plastic Floating Frogs

Postby IlliniDawg01 » Fri Jan 13, 2017 8:20 am

While looking at snake lures earlier I remembered the Doomsday D-Hop 75 from last years Classic New Product Showcase.

Has anyone happened to try one out yet? If so, thumbs up or thumbs down?

They really interested me because I like frog lures that float, but I hate the hollow body frogs. The hookup ratio usually sucks, they don't look that realistic to me, and they inevitably get torn up and start taking on too much water. I prefer the toad style baits I can get several of and just cram a big EWG hook in em and catch fish, but I don't like that most don't float.

I bought some of ZMan Elaztech frogs and they work well for the most part, but don't have the realism I prefer.

I also found these Bog Frogs which look interesting.

I have a similar frog as the Bog Frog. It's the 3:16 no bull frog & is 7" long. It sure gets the blow ups, my hook up ratio is probley around 30 to 40%. It would be higher if I would wait until I feel the weight of the fish before setting the hook
