The Filthy Frog from Googan Squad is a hollow-bodied topwater bait that cleans up in the slop. Its weedless design allows you to drag this bait through the thickest cover, and the bait’s narrow-body presents a perfect frog profile. The Filthy Frog is weighted, so you can cast it far and cover plenty of water. The body is designed to keep water out and stay balanced during your retrieve. The rubber legs give this bait a lively action; they’re fastened to the bait from the inside to prevent them from falling out, even after the harsh treatment dished out by aggressive bass, pike, or other frog-loving species. When the water temps are warm, look for areas with shallow water vegetation and deploy the Filthy Frog. It will be disgusting.
This Frog can walk the walk! With your rod tip pointed down, apply quick twitches on a slackline. This technique imparts the ”walk the dog” action popular in topwater lures. Every Filthy Frog’s hook is wrapped tightly with plastic tubing to help prevent water seeping into your frog.
Always wait a second before setting the hook on a hollow body frog. A short pause gives the fish time to fully take the bait, while providing you time for a strong hookset. Also, you can trim one of the Filthy Frogs skirted legs shorter than the other to increase the bait’s walking ability!
