Toads and Frogs: Dog-gone Good for Florida Bass!

Everyone knows there's a difference between a frog and a toad--one has slick skin and likes to stay wet, while the other has bumpy skin and likes to stay dry. In bass fishing, it's a little more complicated than that, and FS Members are hashing out the details in a Forum thread this week.

Not purely by chance, the May 2012 Florida Sportsman print edition is now on newsstands, with an informative article by veteran outdoors writer Chris Christian, who gives some great suggestions on how to fish these baits during the spring-early summer period on Florida waters. What's the diff between the lure types? Well, the frog is designed to slowly pick through cover, while the toad skims over it quickly. Either way, these are great lure styles for the post-spawn months, when bass are filling up on amphibians and other large prey.
