I have the black with yellow pattern popper version....love it!
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.
Today I had success with a Booya frog. It was about 7 Bucks and I have it on 50 pound braided.
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.
as my name indicates, i love frog fishing, on lake hickory i work em like a spook and the popper, well like a popper. On the shore i have yet to find a pads or a real good frog scene, but i throw em were i would a topwater or buzzbait. i use a 7'2 H shimano compre with a quantum 7:3 smoke 150, with 50 lb Ppro.. biggest on a frog was 3 lbs..
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
Really like the way the spro frog look I also like the strike king kvd sexy frog looks
I agree senkomaster got better hook ups with the koppers.

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!
