    I got blue, yellow, green,brown and all with different shapes on them. And does frog size matters?

    I fish frogs A LOT. Probably my #2 most used lure. I’m convinced color doesn’t matter one bit. Most of the time I’m fishing frogs in such thick shit the fish can’t actually see it anyway, and even if they could it would just be a silhouette against the sky. So I usually opt for something hi-viz so I can easily tell if a fish has taken it under the surface. White, yellow, bright green are go-to’s of mine.

    Size, however, does matter. I generally use the smallest frog I can because I find I get better hookup ratio. I fish for snakeheads a lot and they have relatively small mouths compared to their body size, so small frogs are definitely useful there, but I also hook up with more bass when using a smaller frog. With bigger frogs I get more bass striking at the legs or just knocking the bait in the air, while smaller frogs are easier for them to engulf. Granted, I still get some short/missed strikes on small frogs but it happens less often.

    I surveyed 1,000 random largemouth, smallmouth, and pwacock bass. An overwhelming majority said that every frog they ever ate was some shade of green.

    Good rule of thumb is low vis go with something bright, with clear water go with natural. As for size it’s really about patience as far as I’m concerned.. throw a smaller bait expect smaller fish, throw a larger bait youll wait longer for a fish as the small ones won’t go for it but more likely to get a big fish

    Also a fan of the live target frog. Generally speaking I only use two colors when fishing topwater, White or Black.

    My favorite frog is a Spro walking frog, I’m just able to walk it well and it was my first frog so I’m bias. I’ve got the natural green color in both sizes. Bright color frogs I believe are good for when throwing them in more cover so you can see when it’s taken under better. I throw natural fairly often but if I keep missing them due to visibility I’ll throw a white one. Keep in mind the top of the frog means nothing, the fish won’t see it, that’s more for you as the fisherman. Pay more attention to the bottom colors if you’re looking for something specific to present.

    I throw black early morning/late evening and white in-between. I do mix in the bullfrog color when it’s not scalding hot outside
