Mice and Frogs: Pests or Topwater Gold?


If the words mice and frogs conjure images of Biblical plagues and infestations, you may immediately start thinking of ways to rid your garden or home of unwanted pests. But if those words make you want to go bass fishing, you likely know the appeal of fishing with these increasingly popular topwater baits. Field and Stream‘s Dave Wolak explains how to choose between a frog and a mouse for topwater bass fishing.

“While it might be easy to say a frog lure and mouse lure are so similar, one isn’t better than the other, there are subtle differences, and understanding when to go with an amphibian, and when to tie on a rodent can really help you cash in on the hot topwater bite this time of year.”
