bass fishing frog in bass mouth

This frog walks really well in open water. I initially thought Scum Frogs were made to fish over super thick mats of scum; that’s where I’ve always assumed their claim to fame came from and has always been what I’ve used these frogs for in the past.

But the Scum Frog Trophy Series Painted Frog does a really nice job in open water as well, fished more like what I’d call a traditional walking-style hollow body frog. With a simple twitch of the rod tip, you can get a cadence going pretty quickly that allows you to walk the frog right and left.
