Hollow Body Walking Frog
If there’s a “meat and potato” type of frog, this is it. The ability to drag a weedless frog over thick mats, walk it through the gnarliest wood cover, or skip it under overhanging limbs makes it uniquely weedless among surface lures for bass.
Bright sun is a real attribute for shallow froggin’, as bass position among any available cover in these shallow pockets to ambush forage trapped in the narrow confines of these tight quarters. The extreme weedless design of the LIVETARGET Hollow Body Frog and the ease of the walk-the-dog action are an ideal combination for drawing bass out of the shallow cover.
If there’s been a consistent knock on this style of frog over the years, it’s been from the low landing percentages on blowups at the end of a long cast, and improving that metric with a frog boils down to design. The soft body construct of the LIVETARGET Hollow Body Frog is critical by allowing the material to collapse out of the way of the precisely angled hook points. While the soft body is noticeable immediately upon inspection out of the package, the subtle angle of the forged custom double hooks is less noticeable, but no less important, resulting in the ideal placement of both hooks in the top of the bass’ mouth as they’re lifted from the water.
The Hollow Body Frog is available in three sizes: 1 ¾”, 2 ¼”, and 2 ⅝”. While the 2 ¼ size may be considered an “all-purpose” size, the smaller 1 ¾ frog is perfect when small forage is observed in the shallows or bass aren’t fully committing to the larger sizes. The larger 2 ⅝ is great when casting a bigger shadow over matted surface vegetation or simply big game hunting in the shallows.
