New Bass Frog on the Market
But there's a new kid in town now, and the design of this new frog isn't just different, it's radically different.
While some plastic frogs have skirts for legs, others have plastic legs that are shaped like a real frog's legs, but they stay almost completely stationary. This new frog, Capt. Ken Daubert's Designer Clone Series (http://www.bass-frog.com/), has a flexible rubberband-ish section of plastic with feet facing forward when the frog is at rest. Upon twitching the frog, the legs sweep back, then sweep forward again. This gives a more realistic retrieve for frogging anglers, and from yesterday's trip to a local pond, it is a hit with the bass as well.
