Wooden Frog: Colors: 4 Size: 2.25" Weight: N/A Pack Count: 1
It seems like it has been a long while since I have written a review on a hard body frog and I feel kinda bad that the return of the hard body coincides with this review on a recently retired bait. I purchased my Poor Boy Wooden frog last season, and was surprised that as of today it is impossible to find almost anywhere.. but after reading the below review, you'll know why
Overall Rating: 6/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price
The PBB Wooden frog is a 2-price bait that consists of a bass wood body with a swing hook and a screw. The legs of the bait are soft plastic and are interchangeable. The look of the bait leaves much to be desired, its a very basic paint job but the colours are nice.
The wooden body will take a beating and holds up really well. The legs not so much as the small spring does little to hold them in place. Luckily this frog comes with 3 pairs of legs
Last season when I purchased this frog I did so through LandBigFish. When preparing for the review I noticed it it no longer listed on their site, nor the PoorBoy Baits site.. this tells me it is not officially retired.. so no score was given
Options & Price: N/A
Where to Find:
Retired.. if you find it and it's cheap, give it a shot
When using the Poor Boy Baits wooden frog I would opt to throw it on either a 735c for power or a 734c for action. The choice comes down to how and where you will be fishing. If your battling cover go with the 735C if you are fishing mostly open water the 734c will provide great action and still get the job done.
As for reels I used a Daiwa Lexa in the smaller 100 series size spooled up with Toray Finesse braid, again I focus on presentation over power when using this frog
