Frog Fishing 12 Months a YearAuthor: Captain Mike Gerry | Posted: 08/26/2012
Over the years that I have been fishing Guntersville I have found that frog fishing combined with the right set of circumstances can catch fish 12 months a year. I used to believe that we had a window of opportunity all set up around the grass growth, but have since realized that you can catch good fish anytime on a frog if you just use the natural surroundings to your advantage!
The fact is my history tells me that there was an opportunity to catch fish on a frog every month of the year over the past several years. In fact I had one winter where I caught more big fish on a frog than any bait during that winter. The key was just finding two things; that being active bait fish and the next being cover, any cover worked like boat houses, or lay down trees along edges, over hanging branches, or just grass that had not gotten blown away yet. It was just amazing to me to recall all the bass that would strike a frog when they just had a couple of elements right. That winter I referred to was cold as my data showed the outside temperature in the low 40's but the grass had not been totally eliminated and we caught some of the biggest fish for that year of fishing. The thing many people don't realize is that a frog is real easy to pitch into tree limbs and lay downs in the water, with basically zero chance of hanging it up.
The fact is you don't need grass only to produce a frog bite or a big fish, a frog is a very versatile bait; if you're a dock fisherman I can tell you that a frog can be skipped up under a dock very easily and when bait is present it's as deadly as fishing a jig under a dock. If you like fishing a frog, you can easily make it everyday bait with just a little thought and planning of your fishing day by using it in hard to get places. A frog is very versatile and you can make it produce all year long!
