Scum Frog Wins Royal Rumble at 2020 Ultimate Frog Challenge on the California Delta

D’Iberville, Mississippi. (July 29, 2020) – Scum Frog was a late entry into the 2020 Ultimate Frog Challenge (UFC) on the California Delta but the company came to event day swinging to win the coveted UFC Royal Rumble. The Royal Rumble is a special competition within the UFC event. The 2020 Royal Rumble saw 7 teams – selected by 7 different frog manufacturers, compete head-to-head for the coveted “Top Frog” trophy which is presented to the highest finishing team – and the frog brand they represent.

The team of Kris Huff and Kent Simpson took the “Top Frog” Royal Rumble title, edging out all competitors on the strength of Scum Frog’s Launch Trophy Series Popper – a bait that makes just enough noise when twitched.

“We figured that the fish had seen dozens of frogs skip across their head so we agreed to fish slow and let the frog do the work. We also knew because of Scum Frog’s low profile, the fish were seeing more of our frogs than any other. Day one we caught a small, three-fish limit of 8.63 and knew we had ground to make up.” said Scum Frog Pro Staffer Kris Huff

Scum Frog has made a significant investment since being acquired by American Baitworks in 2018. The company has designed new frog profiles like the Launch Frog and introduced new color profiles in the Painted Trophy Series. The extensive effort has quickly made Scum Frog a “must-have” for tournament frog fishing.

“Day 2 of the tournament we decided to make a big run back towards our “home water” on the Delta. We knew that the early, low light conditions were going to have the fish set up different. We caught multiple smaller fish in the low light in open water around tulies on the new Scum Frog Launch Frog. The Launch Frog moves an incredible amount of water and is heavy enough to bulldog through choppy water. With a small limit by 9 am, we knew it was time to hit the duckweed and after making a few casts I landed a California Delta 7.10lbs hog!. We finished with a two-day total of 22.61 anchoring our 2nd place overall finish and earning us the Royal Rumble top frog award.” said Kris Huff

Scum Frog’s sister company Snag Proof took home the overall win and a $5,400 payday thanks to the hard work of Billy Hume and Mike Kuhlman, who showed how incredible the delta fishery can be, as they almost tilted the scales with an amazing two-day, 6-fish limit totaling 30.16 pounds, earning them the UFC6 Championship title!

They indicated that the Snag Proof brand of frogs was the key to victory and also playfully explained that “GET THE NET” duties were equally divided, as both caught a good share of the fish that were landed.
