Dale Robinson, an angler who moved from Popular Bluff to Monett, echoed that sentiment.
Many times a hooked bass will jump out of the water after taking the frog, so be ready to keep it from doing so. The aerial acrobatics of a hooked largemouth are spectacular to watch, but many a bass has been lost when it jumps. Keep the fish safely in the water, where you can tire it out before attempting to land it by keeping your rod tip in the water. You can usually tell when a fish is going to jump, especially if you hook one on a deep working lure.
"My largest bass weighed 7 pounds, and I have taken many in the 5 pound range. The frog really worked good for me. I earned the nickname 'Frog' because I love to hunt and eat frogs as well as use them for bait.".
the fish wallows on the surface, diminishing its opportunity to spit out the lure.
Lee's Summit angler Nathan Butcher, 15, also likes to use a plastic frog when fishing Ozarks waters.
I couldn't get a hit on lures, so I caught a couple of big grasshoppers expecting to catch a bass and was surprised to hook a 3 pound channel cat and then another smaller one.
Since that first time I caught a bass on a frog, many big bass have been taken in the summer on frogs both real and plastic. It's still hard to wait before setting the hook, just like it is with a plastic worm, but the wait is worth it in the number of fish you'll bring in.
or stun the frog and then returns to pick it up as it lies still on the surface.
With the fish solidly hooked, land it as soon as possible. A bass takes a frog deep in its mouth, deep enough for your line to run across the row of teeth in the fish's lower lip. The longer you take to bring the fish in, the greater the chance of it fraying and snapping your line.
"I fished Lake Wappapello a lot," Robinson said. "There are lilypads in the lake, so by using a plastic frog and casting it atop a pad, and then slipping it into the water, oftentimes a big bass would grab the frog.
In small waters, try flipping the frog to small openings in weeds or brush along the bank. Let the frog land silently on the water so you won't spook fish holding directly under the cover. In densely matted cover, you may have to jiggle the frog until it works down deeper, that is unless a bass engulfs the Converse All Star Ox Womens frog first.
"I have fished Stockton and Table Rock since I was a little kid, as well as several Ozark streams," he said. "I have had good luck using a weedless plastic frog."
Last week, Jim Walker of Butler was fishing on Truman Lake and found the fishing good by using a plastic frog.
"I figured it was too hot for fishing, but I went out early and hit a cove with brush," Walker said. It was a great July morning on the water. I am sold on using frogs in the summer to catch bass."
frogs prove irresistible to lunkers
This is the time of year that fishing for bass and channel catfish with frogs can be productive. I found that out years ago while fishing at Blind Pony Lake near Marshall.
Since that day, I've taken a lot of bass by using Converse All Star Street Sneakers For Toddlers
A small frog jumped while I was trying to catch more hoppers, so I grabbed it and put it on my hook. On the first cast, a fish hit the frog. Thinking it was another catfish, it turned out to be a 17 inch bass. The rest of the morning was spent catching grasshoppers, frogs, catfish and bass.
frogs. Knowing that bass like live frogs, maybe a plastic version might work as well. I've learned several things about using a plastic frog. When a largemouth bass strikes an imitation frog, don't do anything. If you attempt to set the hook immediately, the chances are the frog will come flying back to you. Instead, count to three. This gives the bass time to turn the frog around in its mouth and start to swallow it.
Often a bass merely tries to kill Buy Converse Shoes Adelaide
This tactic also works well when flipping with a 7 inch plastic worm, a long rod, 25 pound test line and a half ounce sinker. Peg the sinker by using a toothpick in the top hole of the bullet weight.
Don't take your eyes off the frog, or the spot where the bass struck. Try to determine exactly what the fish is doing. When you are sure the bass has the frog in its mouth, set the hook as hard as you can.
You can see your line coming up, you can feel the fish surfacing as pressure on your rod changes. Keep your rod tip down when this is happening, but then turn it to the side so you can keep the pressure on. Instead of jumping, Converse Modern All Star
