  1. I'm a total newbie with fishing, im from NYC trying to learn really late lol. You're the first person ive seen fish in the beginning with just the lure and nothing else? Is that an effective way to fish? Thank you

  2. Lol This may be a crazy question but I'm extremely new to bass fishing and fishing in general. This seems like a nice channel to ask. This is wild bass not stocked correct? Or is this stocked?

    I used that exact frog. A couple tips, bend the hooks out 1/4 inch each side for more catches (I see you mentioned that)

    I also like to throw a few BB’s inside the body to create a rattle effect when using it as a jerk bait

    Last thing is superglue it’s mouth shut if you don’t want to squeeze water out of it every cast.

    Wait to set the hook, a good 2-3 seconds after the bite

    Thanks for the video! I may try throwing it tomorrow, great for Largemouth and Pike fishing in Maine

  4. I’ve used this frog quite a bit actually lol, fishin for pike at a small creek by my old house. Caught I’d say around 15 or 20 good pike on these frogs

  5. I've had a lot of success with some of the cheap "Cotton Cordell" brand crank baits they sell at Walmart. I've caught many large and small mouth bass on them. And at less than $3 each they're a great bargain compared to the higher priced name brands.

  6. That’s awesome! I’ve been wanting to try too water frogs, but they want 10-12$ for them now I’m gonna go by a few! Thanks man, this is definitely worth a sub!

  7. Oh yes, Bass love frog baits. Best one I had was one i got for 50 cents in northern Ontario. I caught more smallies and than I could count with that thing. It did surprisingly well with pike in northern Alberta as well.
