Default EVOLVE Original Series Frog


This weekend I had the chance to try out this new awesome looking hard bodied frog. What I really like about the frog, other than the amazing detail, is the hook placement. I imagine with the hook placement where it is, unlike most frogs on the market, there is no plastic to worry about moving out of the way. When the fish hits, he is getting the points immediately.

When I pulled out my frog rod and showed D'Chil this new EVOLVE bait, he had the same concern as I did, "...but how weedless will it be?"

When the bait is placed in the water, it sit's tail down, nose up, nearly straight up and down in the water at almost a 90 degree angle to the surface. That too made us wonder how weedless.

Well, that question was soon answered as I tossed my frog in a large mat of emergent hydrilla and lily pads.

To our surprise it was EXTREMELY weedless. I cast it repetitively into the thickest weeds I could see and I never felt so much as a slight snag. It effortlessly came through everything. I was very impressed!

However, I can show no fish pictures at this time. With the cold front that blew in, we couldn't BUY a topwater bite, regardless of which bait we threw.

In any case, this is an awesome bait and dare I say, the most realistic looking frog on the market!

Tackle Warehouse carries EVOLVE's line of frogs. You can check them out Here (click here)

They also have a series called the Pulse Frogs, which can be seen Here (click here)

The body isnt simply painted nicely. It has a lot of 3d textures. Bumps, ripples, etc... it is amazing!

That is an awesome looking frog, I have been looking at all the new hard baits that came out at ICAST and all I can say is....Its going to cost me a lot of money.

I like the looks of it alot...and the trailing hooks makes perfectly good sense...I just have a hard time popping that much money for a top water frog that has a limited life expectancy...

Hey Jared. I bought two of these frogs and they just came in today. I bought the original frog and the pulse frog. I LOVE the realistic look to them. However, I noticed that on both frogs, the line-tie eye was crooked...very noticeable. When I tried to correct it with a pair of pliers, I could hear it crack a bit. No real damage, but I was curious if your frogs are like that too. I figure for a $16.00 lure, it should be of sound quality. Don't get me wrong, it looks beautiful...but that doesn't matter as much to me as the quality and performance of the bait. Thanks.

Mike

No, Mike, my frogs line ties were straight. Where did you buy them from? Hopefully it was Tackle Warehouse because if so they will replace them for you. At least they have always replaced any defective or damaged products myself and my friends have ordered from them. They are pretty good about it.

Thanks Jared. Yeah, I bought them from Tackle Warehouse. Guess I need to give them a call then. Thanks.
