Hard Frog Lures
Hard body frogs are a hybrid lure of sorts combining the appeal of frog pattern lures with traditional hard topwater lures. Hard frog lures have a deep history in the bass fishing industry with some of the earliest lures designed to mimic the small amphibians anglers observed bass feeding upon. In recent years the rise in popularity of frog lures has been predominantly associated with the hollow body soft plastic frogs that provide a a way of reaching otherwise un-catchable bass that are buried in heavy vegetation or otherwise positioned in inaccessible locations. Their hard body cohorts are much different in both design and application. The hard body frogs typically display incredibly detailed paint finishes that are difficult to achieve on their soft plastic counterparts. Additionally, these lures commonly incorporate treble hooks which is better suited for open water applications.
