St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods
$150.00 – $160.00
Fish Lake (MN)
Brandon Garrett reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods on Fish Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Fish lake can be super fun, and Tuesday evening July 5th, it was just that. So many frog bites so little time! It was mostly calm and lightly raining. Storms and lightning were around but miles away. Some bites came near openings in the lily pads or near wood, but the key to the better size and numbers of bass was to keep the frog quickly walking over the submerged vegetation that was just touching the surface of the water. This was deeper than the pads, more like 4' of water. Only pausing the frog for a half second every half dozen twitches was enough to give them time to crush it. I usually fish the frog with much longer pauses and work more slowly, but the bass apparently weren't on board with that program. They wanted it moving! "
Thompson Lake (WI) (WI)
Caleb Lieffring reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods on Thompson Lake (WI). Additional comments from this report: "Fish frogs where there is duckweed “mats” mixed within lily pads."
Daiwa Tatula Series Casting Rods
$149.99 – $199.99
Balsam Lake (WI)
SnowtaBass reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and Daiwa Tatula Series Casting Rods on Balsam Lake. Additional comments from this report: "The frog bite was very good on Balsam. Locate lilipads or matted vegetation on top of the water. Find these areas and fan cast them and you will find some decent fish. If you can locate wood or stumps mixed within the pads or weeds make sure to work that area well. The fish seemed to be located near the structure in the pads/weeds. Nothing beats a good frog bite!"
Sullivan Lake (MN)
Bass Pundit reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and Daiwa Tatula Series Casting Rods on Sullivan Lake. Additional comments from this report: "I spent a good hour plus in a productive area, but the fish weren’t interested in my frogs and toads. I then spent a couple hours trying some deeper rock and didn’t get bit. I went back into the reeds and hit pay dirt with the Terminator Poppin Frog, KVD Sexy Frog, and Z-Man Billy Goat. Unfortunately, I missed some quality bites as well. I ended the trip finding a school of quality bass that had reconstituted itself on a particular rice edge that we crushed them on in July until we had fished them out and disbursed the school. They were back schooled up there today. My best six between Platte and Sullivan weighed just under 17lbs."
Punk Rock Mike
Lake Le Homme Dieu (MN)
Punk Rock Mike reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and Daiwa Tatula Series Casting Rods on Lake Le Homme Dieu. Additional comments from this report: "Frogging and flipping shallow grass and pads was the deal for us over the weekend. Seemed like isolated patches of pads mixed in with grass near deep water got the best bites. Most of our fish came in less than 2 ft of water. Hot baits where scum frog launch frogs in white and missile baits d bomb in bruiser flash"
St. Croix Victory Casting Rods
$200.00 – $275.00
South Center Lake (MN)
Travis Newville reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and St. Croix Victory Casting Rods on South Center Lake. Additional comments from this report: "I worked my frog in between docks on this one. That st croix victory rod is an amazing frog rod"
Pool 9 Lake Winneshiek (WI)
Ryan Lowe reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and St. Croix Victory Casting Rods on Pool 9 Lake Winneshiek. Additional comments from this report: "Throw a frog on the edges of the grass, work the frog fast. "
Nathan M Gravert
Pool 13 Mississippi River (IA)
Nathan M Gravert reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and St. Croix Victory Casting Rods on Pool 13 Mississippi River. Additional comments from this report: "Some good bites have been coming fishing frogs in the lily pads. The terminator walking frog is super easy to walk side to side and allows for a nice slow walking presentation through the pads. If you see the pads move or miss a fish you can flip a bait back in the pads to get them to bite. You need the right gear for this type of fishing. 50-65lb braid is important and a nice heavy action rod like the St. Croix Victory VTC74HF paired with a Daiwa tatula 150 is vital to getting the big ones out of heavy cover.

Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Frogs/Toads technique and St. Croix Mojo Bass Casting Rods on Lake of the Isles. Additional comments from this report: "Got on a bit of an unexpected frog bite this weekend. The pad fields that were too thick to fish a frog through this summer are now very sparse. These pads were perfect for a popping frog. The fish were concentrated on the pads and if you can find pads with laydowns nearby that was even better. Besides location, fish the frog just like you would during the summer. For more info on how I do that check out my other Lake of the Isles fishing report on summer frogging. Take advantage of this bite while you can it will be gone quick!"
