What line should I use for frog fishing?
Typically, experienced frog anglers will use heavy line and fairly stout rods to get these fish. Monofilament lines in the 20-30 pound class are common, and braided superlines in the 50-80 pound class have gained immense popularity in the past few years.
When should I start frog fishing?
Around the middle of June, big bass stop looking for large fish (trout, kokanee, big shad) to eat and start moving into the shallows with a focus on bank creatures and shallow water fish. From the middle of June through the end of August will be the best time to fish with frog lures.
How do you bait a frog with fish?
When fishing short patches of mats or lily pads, skim a frog across the weeds and continue to work it in the same fashion once it slides into open water. Constantly twitching your rod when the lure hits open water will cause the frog’s legs to kick and thrust to imitate the real thing.
What are frog lures for?
The popping hollow-body frog is effective in open water as well as on top of the slop. These baits, such as the Booyah Poppin’ Pad Crasher, create fish-attracting pops and splashes when twitched in open holes in the weeds or can be worked right off the weed edge and into open water.
Where do you hook a live frog?
Toads are also a successful bait for catching largemouth. Try creating a live bait rig with a split shot and a slip sinker above it on the line with a frog hooked through the lips. Frogs are fished shallow, deep or across the tops of lily pads.
