Thread: Spro Frog anyone??

  1. #1

    Default Spro Frog anyone??

    Anyone used these yet with any sucess?? They look awesome, the price doesnt look so good though ($10 A PIECE) but if they work i'd invest in one or 2 of them and just make sure to use 50lb+ braid. Click image for larger version.

    Ten bucks yea, but you really shouldn't lose it, very wseedless, and 50lb braid helps lol

    They definitely have there place. Don't fish too many lakes, but on rivers with a lot of cover on the banks they are great.

    I have a green one and white one that is pretty much wore out from fishing for LMB down in florida. Frogs are my go to bait pretty much all year long. I picked the spros up for 9.99 which is a little pricey and I've seen a couple knockoff's that look very similar for less than half of the price of the spro frog.

    At first I had trouble hooking fish with frogs but you have to let the fish have some slack and take it then set the hook. I think the spros and other similar frogs are a better deal than using the soft plastic frogs such as rage tail or zoom toads. I can burn threw 5 packs of soft plastics in a day fishing the heavy cover here in florida. I use a 7 ft spinning road medium heavy with 30-50lb braid and a gamkatsu superlin hook in 4/0 5/0 for the soft plastics...

    I've yet to fish in NC but looking forward to trying new waters.

    I caught my biggest bass ever with a Spro Frog about a month ago. You almost can't get them hung up even when trying. They are about as weedless as it comes!

    Got 2 by Manns on clearance at WallyMart recently. Look almost identical to that one. Think they were $2.99 or little less.

    I like the koppers frog... same deal as the spro but seems to sit better in the water and i actually catch fish with it... tried the brown spro... using the brown/black koppers... fish these in harris in the grass and it white knuckle fishing for sure. You can get stinger hooks to help but thats negates the weedlessness

    I was looking at trying them on Spec. Trout and Puppy Drum. I have a habbit of using lures on stuff they were never made to catch and having pretty good luck.

    That price isn't bad to the price for that leopard frog that was so realistic that you have to take a real close look. But the legspins into the rear of the frog and legs flop back and forth. The frog lure that I'm talking about is the Ken Daubert ( www.floridakayakfishing.com ) You can see this and I think the price was $35 or $45.00 a piece, hand made! I don't think to many regular fishing persons bought them but the pro's would have, they can afford to!
