Sunset Bass and Speck on Zoom Horny Toad!

Bass continue to strike frogs along the shoreline of most lakes and streams in this area. Of course, Sunset is the best time but we are catching fish even when the sun is high. Fish these Toads with a 5/0 wide gap hook and rig them weedless. Either cast them onto the floating grass along the shore and “tickle” them off into clear water OR swim them into the grass mat and bounce them on the edge like a frog having trouble climbing onto the grass. Either finesse presentation will create a feeding opportunity for bass. Frogs are easy to swallow and don’t have dorsal fins that scratch their throat.
Here is a photo of an incidental catch: a black crappie or speckled perch as we call them here in Florida. This one also liked frogs. We have even caught bluegill on these lures.
