    Prior, I had experimented with Ribbit frogs for the first time on a private pond, not knowing what I was doing, and came to the same conclusion - a steady retrieve worked best.

    As far as I know, weightless is the only way to fish a frog.

    In addition, "match the hatch." That is, I don't believe cover is always the automatic indicator to use a frog. I use my ears. If I hear a lot of frogs chirping in the area, or see an area similar to where I've heard frogs, I'm throwing a frog.

    As dumb as I am about LMB fishing, I try to keep it simple and use what I see/hear is the predominate bait in the area/season.

    good luck!
    Agree with the slow steady retrieve through open water, esp. near grassline edges; it gives an effect like a double bladed buzzbait taking a relaxing swim after a glass of fine scotch. But when on top of heavy matted grass, the paddle feet don't paddle much, so I tend to jerk the frog a few inches at a time with irregular pauses, sometimes even a section of "deadsticking' for 20-30 seconds.....

    Kaboooom!

    That's why I like this forum: Even after I offer my opinion, someone else can share their's and I learn something new.

    That's just COOL!

    Thanks, Ro!

    Whatever you do.......don't tie on a zoom horny toad in green pumpkin weightless at Bastrop with a 5/0 Owners hook and work it like a fluke in the grass.........unless of course you want to catch toads!

    If you're contemplating pouring frogs you might consider asking yourself this question: What is the bass going to see? That is the point is it not? Doesn't really matter what you or I see, humans see objects 2 dimensionally and not through water. Green pumpkin works on a consistant basis and it looks very plain to us....fish see it differently...just a little food for thought.

    flatirons, are you some sort of mind reader or something. lol. i have seen some pretty nice looking frog molds, but i been wanting to fish them, just dont have any confidence in them just yet, but all it takes is one fish on and the confidence column shoots to the roof. but indeed yes it was a plan to pour a frog or two
    Yea I love dem Strippers
