I'm taking about the buzzfrogs, with the hooked or paddletail feet. Everyone pretty much has a version now. I'm wondering if there's a way to keep them upright? Mine all tend to flip over. I've been getting some hard strikes lately, but the fish aren't eating them. I think it's a common thing; bass sometimes just want to kill something like that. But I'm wondering if I would hook up more if the hook was upright, instead of down. The color patterns are also reversed when they do this. Is it me? Do others have this problem? Am I missing fish because of it?

They should be weighted on 1 side so they float right side up. If not buy ones that are... smile smiley

Yes thats why you are missing fish. Bass will strike a frog to "knock" it out. Then wait to see what the frog does.. Let it sit! Then twitch it slightly and hang on to your rod... shocked smiley If you don't get a hit that way leave it out there and toss out a weight-less worm in the same spot and let sink slowly. They should hit the worm and run like mad.. I hope this helps.. And let us know if it did.. grin smiley grin smiley

I thought I might get an answer from you. Thanks!

I think you know what I'm talking about, but just to be clear, it's the plastic solid body frogs, not hollow scum frogs. So, if I let it sit, it will sink like a worm. Does your tactic still apply? I'm gonna give it a try, either way, I think.

What about the flipping over part? Any ideas?

And what about that hook slot? Some have one, some don’t. Sometimes it’s on the back and sometimes it’s on the belly? Does that mean I’m supposed to rig those upside down? I’ve been trying a lot of frogs this year, so I don’t recall which one is which right now. But I think the Yum frog might have the slot on the belly.

The Scum Frog Bigfoot is an excelent frog lure. I never have a problem with it going upside down. It also has one of the best clearances for the hook set. Some frog bodies are too hard or cover the hook too much. Not the Bigfoot, my ratio of hook ups with this lure is well above most others. I also like the Mann's Rat which has been discontinued.
Their Superfrog is better than Spro or Snagproof.

I think you could let it sink after the "knock out" hit. Maybe get some of those lead nails and stick one in the frog on the bottom to try and keep it up right.

Huh, I like the nail idea. I think I'll try it out. Thanks!

I will try the Scum Frog Bigfoot as well. I've looked at those plenty of times.

Buy a couple packs of Gambler Cane Toads. I like black, white and green pumpkin. Texas rig them with a 5/0 EWG Superline hook and peg it with a 1/16 oz. bullshot.

You'll catch them all day long.

Buy a product called Mend It to repair your soft plastic frogs when the get tore up. Stuffs just awesome at rebonding soft plastic.

You might try a trailor hock. That works on a lot of fish that hit and don't stay.
