Bass Fishing Frogs and Tokyo Rigs on a New Lake | VLOG Part 2

Wired2fish’s Mitch Anderson and Kobie Koenig target bass on a new lake in Part 2 of their summer bass fishing VLOG series. While a range of topwater and subsurface baits produced in Part 1, hollow body frogs dominated the bite in Part 2 on this grass-infested lake.

Anderson leads the video with a unique rigging method that converts a Flipping Tokyo Rig into a super weedless jig, complete with a silicone skirt and flapping craw trailer. The bite, however, quickly shifts to the top, where hollow body popping frogs outproduce walking and spin-tail varieties.

The boys get adventurous and navigate their boat through a narrow channel into an entire backwater flat loaded with lily pads. Koenig starts dominating “little Mitchy” with his popping frog program. He explains why he prefers popping frogs over walking (when he can get away with it) on expansive grass flats and how a bright color accent on the cupped frog nose improves hooking percentages.
