Just got some new spro frogs today. Going to Lake Harris on Saturday. Can't wait to try them out
It only takes one bite to turn a bad day into a great one.

    I asked this question on another thread but didn't get a response. I have seen some spots where I have wanted to throw a frog but feared the gators would hit it. Is that much of a problem frog fishing? Thanks :)

    If you see a gator chasing it reel really fast.

    I'd be more worried about them getting my bass once I had one on the line.

    It happens but it's not "much" of a problem.
    I have never seen live bones, but I know that they are often used by rich people to decorate the interior.

    That is a problem I face fishing on the St. John's a lot. I just keep my distance. If I really want to fish where there at I tease them out with the bait ( reeling really fast) then throw in the spot.

    Yeah, I guess it is a 2 part problem, hitting the frog and chasing the fish that hit the frog! LoL This is all new to me, dealing with gators, up north it was snapping turtles that would hit frogs and plastics.

    Gators aside, as much as I like frogs, not much reaction to them this year. 3 different water systems have told me it's time to change. Livetarget makes a sunfish hollow body bait I think most have caught on to.

    Jeez, I haven't seen a gator all year down here in Broward or Palm Beach counties.

    The LiveTarget is pretty legit. I felt it was a bit gimmicky, but got one anyway to try. The bass love it and its action is more unique than most frogs.

    Savage Gear Bluegill swimbait is pretty deadly too on bigger largemouth.

    With the ponds now out of their banks, the topwater action is getting pretty good. I have only caught dinks so far, but it is fun.
