How to Fish a Hollow Body Frog

No matter where you are in the country, frogging will always be a necessity in your fishing arsenal. Patrick Walters breaks down how and when to use each type of frog, and the colors to stick with. There are distinct differences in the locations that these frogs excel in, and depending on the cover could be the difference in getting bit or not. Whether you are throwing a poppin frog or a walkin frog, color choices are simple. Black, white, red, and a bait fish, such as bluegill color, will cover all your bases. Unlike crankbaits or jerkbaits, keeping the colors limited and simple will actually help you narrow in on the color fish are most reactive to. Don't get caught up in the small details of the coloring, just focus on the main color of the frog and rotate through colors until you get bit.

Medium Diver Fall Cranking

When the fall transition begins, it’s a signal for fish to start moving shallow and feed. For Patrick Walters this means one thing, crankin’. Submerged grass can be tricky to fish with a crankbait, but changing line size and the rod you are able to have greater control of the running depth. If the crankbait is running too deep, it gets hung in the roots of the grass, if it's too shallow it goes over the top of the fish. In this situation, Patrick uses a Rapala DT 6, a crankbait that dives 6 feet deep. The grass line he is targeting is about 6 feet deep, growing 3 feet into the water column. To keep this 6 foot diving bait in the zone, Patrick upsizes his line size to 14lb and holds his rod at a 45° angle, keeping the bait running perfectly on the tips of the grass.
