Frog NEWS and Baits Hitting the Shelves

Fairly quiet on the frog front this spring. New baits should be trickling in over the next few months, but for now I only have two quick news items for you:


ln a facebook video (found HERE) Teckel Lures teased a new frog that they are woking on, simply stating that you have never seen a hollow-body like this! - they have since gone quiet, so whats next from Teckel? we all have to wait and see

BAD FROG LURES - is it a Swim-bait or is it a frog?

The team over at Bad Frog Lures has introduced a large bodied frog perfect for you big-bait guys. Weighing in at approximately  3 3/4oz, this frog is made of silicone and stretches out to nearly 8 inches in length, An internal harness has been tested at over 60lbs and will allow you to pull big fish out of the heaviest of cover. These frogs are now available and will run you about $40 USD plus shipping  Check out their instagram page for more details: - @badfrogLures

Top 5 Frog Videos

Here they are, BassJunkies favourite frog videos from April 2018 (we may have cheated a bit here and there). As always be sure to check out our YouTube Channel for frog unboxing reviews, action on the water as well as a collection of our favourite frog fishing videos including the ones below. 

#1 - Frog Fishing a Hidden Bay

NDYakAngler treating us to a great video of him frog fishing a hidden bay. -Largemouth bass caught on a Live Target frog in a shallow hidden bay. This is one of the benefits of kayak fishing, being able to get into these spots most other boats can't get to

Feature Frog: Live Target

#2 - AJ Fishing breaking in the Booyah Baits Toad Runner

"Spent the day down on lake Sommervile with my good friend Shane Howell. The wind was extreme this day which kept us from fishing or filming on the main lake so we tucked way back into the creeks and found some big fish pulling up to spawn! The water temp was in the mid 60's and the wind was blowing 30 mph out of the north."

Feature Frog: Booyah Toad Runner

#3 - Bass Fishing for Beginners: Frog Modification Part 2

DEBO'S Fishing with yet another great frog video packed with information and tips. If you are having hook-up issues or don't know what to do with a pile of lunkerhunt frogs with those damn rubbery legs.. watch and learn

Feature Frog :  LunkerHunt (kinda)

#4 - Trapper Tackle Hooke on a Horny Toad? 

Check out this short video from Trapper Tackle offering up a unique approach to using their hooks in conjunction with a soft plastic toad. Ill be giving this a try this season, watch for a review coming

Feature Frog: Zoom Horny Toad


#5 -  Why, Because it's Bill Dance

We could all use some Bill Dance in our lives from time to time, so here goes , a short (pretty much a commercial) for the Bass Pro Shop Kermy Frog

Feature Frog: BPS XPS Kermy


We couldn't t wrap up the month of April without showing off the collection of one of our readers. @Topwater_toadin lit up the @FrogAddicts instagram page with this museum quality collection that left others green with envy (pun totally intended) 


  1. Thanks for the love man! Appreciate it!

    1. PS....I paused that Teckel teaser video at the point when the frog hits the water. I don't know about you guys, but that looks like a Sprinker to me. Who knows, I could be (and probably am) wrong, but I guess we'll see. A Teckel popping frog would be awesome....fingers crossed!

    2. Did you watch their video on how to make your own Teckel popping frog? it would not surprise me if this was what they were working on.

    3. I think I remember you posting it in a previous newsletter, no? I did't realize it was a video, thought it was a picture. I will check it out.
