Outdoor Advantage Boss Frog Review

     Boss Frog:      Colours: 35   Size: 3.5"     Pack Count:  7     
                             Leg Style: Buzz            Scent: Your Choice


I found out about Outdoor Advantage while reading some forum posts on, I like what I heard and decided to place an order for multiple products including the Boss Frog. If you have not checked out the Outdoor advantage website you are missing out, they design custom baits at an affordable price.. here is what I think about the Boss frog

Overall Rating: 7.3/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price

Quality: 4.5/5

for a smaller mom & pop style operation I was extremely impressed with the quality of the bait produced. It its very durable and the scent lasts for days (my fingers still stink) 

Castability: 3.5/5

The boss hog is one of the shorter frogs I fished this season coming in at the 3.5" mark. That being said it is made of a fairly dense plastic and casts very well. It cant be flipped, skipped or bombed for distance and no matter how it hits the water the deep hook cavity on it's back keeps it out of harms way

Presentation: 3.5/5

The Boss frogs swims well, and gives off a nice churn. It can at times take a few cranks to get it up on plane, but it runs true. Watch you speed when retrieving as at times this frog can go into a death roll, and that will turn off any fish previously paying attention. A wider stance may help future versions of this frog

Hook-Up Ratio: 3.5/5

I really like the deep well on the back of this frog. It gives you the option "to skin hook or not to skin hook". I personally still opt for the skin hook, but if the frog is bumped on your retrieve the point will stays hidden even if  comes loose.

The softer pliable material holds up well, but does not hinder the movement of the hook when a fish strikes. All in all the Boss frog offers a high hook-up ratio

Availability: 2.0/5

Because these frogs are available as custom orders, they can only be purchased through Outdoor Advantage. This is not a bad thing, but it hurts the baits overall review score

Options & Price: 5.0/5

Ok, here is where Outdoor Advantage is going to blow you away. First and foremost the Boss Frog comes in a crazy 35 color options.. yes you heard me,, 35 colours. It that is not enough choice for you it is also available in 8 scent options.. yes I said 8... and that is all in their standard order area, I have even told you about the custom order area in which you can choose, colour, scent, flakes, accent colors and more.. yes Outdoor Advantage is the king of choice, and if you want to know the best part.. they are only $4.50 for a 7 count bag.. that's $0.64 a frog

Ok, last but not least, Outdoor Advantage offers a very cool "Green" frog option. Yes instead of throwing away the extra bits, pieces and leftovers from custom orders, they turn them into a mixed 10 count bag of frogs that will cost you only $3.50. Very cool initiative, way to stay green ( i know there is a pun in there somewhere)

Where to Find:
In case you are having a hard time finding these locally, here are some reliable options for you.


As with most buzz frogs I like to throw the Buzz Frog on a Dobyns 735c, the rod has a soft enough tip to cast theses little guys a country mile and the back bone to yank a boss hawg out of the cover.
