Hi Guys,

Can any of you please advise me on the best way to rig a Fighting Frog?

I'm fairly new to these baits as I never really had any luck in fishing creature baits.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Howzit Sparky.

Give this a watch. The 4 inch Fighting frog is designed to take a 3/0 or 4/0 EWG Gamakatsu. In this clip I'm using the 4/0. Hope it helps. I'm not a great talker on videos but at least you will get an idea of how most of us rig the Fighting Frog.

Thanks guys.

Sparky the weight will depend on you and what the fish are telling you they want. When I go about choosing a weight I will take the following into account: structure,wind,water depth,clarity and line diameter. Obviously for a slower fall you would use a lighter weight and a heavier weight for a faster fall. I like weights from 3/16 up to 1/2 ounce. Bare in mind though that Fighting Frogs can be used in many other situations to eg Carolina rigs,Mojo and on shaky heads ect.

Hope this helps Sparky

Thanks for the advice BillyBass.

Caught a few good keepers yesterday on the "black neon" colour. Rigged on a 1/2 0z weight. I think I've got the action right now. My retrieve might have been too fast.

What are the other "must have" colours?

Btw. Got myself a few Warmouths as well. Very cool bait.
