Frog Addicts Newsletter Vol3

Welcome to the 3RD edition of the Frog Addicts Newsletter. Each month we will be reviewing up to the minute frog and bass fishing related news plus recapping the previous months "Best Of" when it comes to social media, frog videos and more.. Here is what's happening in the world of frog fishing.

Frog NEWS and Baits Hitting the Shelves

Not much new to report in the month of March. The Bass Master Classic has come and gone and with it an influx of new baits, though not much in the way of frog gear. So lets spend some time looking at the newest in Frog Terminal tackle and modification gear


 Say that 3 times fast! - GreenFish Tackle paired with with FLW Pro Brandon Cobb to create the The Toad Toter which is in essence a naked buzz bait designed to be paired with your favourite soft plastic toad. What I like about the bait is that often buzz frogs and built around a specific frog (size) or include a couple throw away baits that ended up costing you money. The Toad Toter does  neither of these things and leaves you the choice to of which bait you want to run on it.. May I recommend the Gene Larew Three Legged Frog! - Available NOW

Watch for a review of the Toad Toter coming later this season.


Also from GreenFish is the Ploppin Toad Toter, obviously taking its name from the River2Sea Whopper Plopper as the two share a similar style blade, though this one comes from the front.
The Ploppin Toad Toter runs your soft plastic toad like an inline spinner giving it extra action all while keeping it up in the water column. I like the yellow bead version as it gives the fish a target and allows me to see it clearly.  - Available NOW


Building on the popularity of their Whopper Plopper River2Sea has designed a Frog Kit that allows you to upgrade and change the sound of any hollow body frog. Either by selection one of the two rattles or the plopper tail truly allowing you to decide how much you want your frog heard and seen.

These add on accessories can simply be attach via the stainless steel wire loops to the double frog hook. They wont fit fit every frog but are compatible with most major brands - Available NOW


Designed to work on soft plastic lures this glue will get your soft plastic toads back together in time.  Not only will Spike-It's™ glue have your lure as good as new, it won't stick to your hands! 
Fix-A-Lure  is also great for designing and customizing your own soft plastic toads. Try gluing on different kicker legs or even adding  a 3-D eye. This stuff should also help patching a puncture in hollow body frogs caused by the hooks during battle. - Available Now
