Lunkerhunt Pocket Frog Lure Review

One thing that distinguishes this lure from many other hollow body frogs on the market is the legs. Unlike most frogs, this lure comes with realistic swimming legs which extend when you retrieve it and retract when you give the frog movement a pause. Lunkerhunt Pocket Frog is made with a soft body that easily collapses when attacked and rapidly exposes its razor-sharp double-edged hook.

Topwater Frog Fishing Tips

Frog-style lures are ideal for fishing weed mats. Unlike lures with exposed hooks that bog down with slop. This lightweight and weedless frog easily glides over vegetation. It is considered as one of the best topwater lures for fishing weeds. The following are a few tips on topwater frog fishing.

Focus On Structure

The easiest technique to catch large bass is to cast your frog near the underwater terrain like logs or submerged trees. If the hooks are not exposed or they are weedless, you can cast them into weed banks. Keep doing this and you will hook some bass. If you are on a boat, it is easier since you can cast and bring it back, but if you are casting from a dock or ashore, try casting along the coast.

Also, if you have lily pads in your lake, you can leave the frog on the lily pads with its tail in the water and stir it slightly; Bass will believe that the frog is wounded or about to die and will strike it. It is important to work the bait slow. This gives bass time to find the frog and access their hunger!

Fishing In The Weeds

This is the most common way of fishing a frog. Bass explode on the frog when you skim it across matted plants with constant twitches of the fishing rod, but the fish often lose the hook. You will have a good chance for firm hook set if you skim the lure over the mat and allow it sit still in the openings of the mat.

Remember once you see the fish boil or jump out of the water and hit the frog, you give them a second or two to firmly place it in their mouths. If you look at my video for the Booyah Pad Crasher Jr I did the wrong thing!

Imitation Is Key

Mimicing a real frog is the most common way of fishing a frog. Just like I have previously taught you about Matching The Hatch, you have to do the same when it comes to frog fishing. Fish want the bait to look like the bait. If you throw a giant pink stick in the water do you think they will bite it...

When fishing a frog lure, you need to be patient not just before the fish strike but also after the strike. Though it can be tough to remember and allow the fish to take the lure before setting the hook. Without patience, the excitement can easily take over when big fish strikes your frog and cause you to quickly jerk the lure away before he could take it.

This has ruined my day several times as I stated before. Remember to stay calm when fish bite. Once you have them in your hand then you can freak out with excitement. I am sure you have seen me jump for joy several times in videos when I have a great catch. I hope you have these days more often as well.


This is the most realistic frog presently available in the industry. Quality components, very soft hollow body structure, and a weed-less design, work as a live frog in water. It drops down slightly into the water perfectly mimicing the action of a frog. Used mainly for fishing bass, pike, and musky in freshwater,  it is a great addition to every tackle box.
