Frog Addicts Newsletter Vol 7 - July 2018

Welcome to the 7th 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

With Icast 2018 now in our rear view window lets take a look at just some of the baits that will be available over the next few months

Gurgle Toad 
by Strike King

One of the first releases at ICAST 2018 was the Strike King Gurgle Toad, a soft plastic toad designed to  deliver a steady kick and bubble trail. The Gurgle can be fished by itself or threaded on the back of a buzzbait, and  features a horny toad style body and two J-shaped feet that generate a gurgling commotion as it shoots across the surface.

Available: Now!

Tip Toad
by YUM

Although we touched on this bait last month, it is now available in stores so I thought it deserved a second mention in the newsletter.  Officially released at ICAST 2018 is available in 10 colors. First impressions are that the Tip Toad should churn some serious water and may see some work under a flipping skirt or on the back end of a jig. 

Available: Now
