My fave, hands down, is a softplastic jerkbait. I love them! I can fish em on the bottom, middle or the top of the water, as welll as all four seasons.

Like throwing a buzzbait also.
I found a new love for buzzbaits last year. Been using them a whole lot this year too. God I love a buzzbait bite! :)

horny toads rigged weightless.
Now there's an exciting bait to use! Around here black seems to be the best. I've also had some luck with hot pink. What colors do yall find best by you?

oh you live in Cali? Must be nice to be able to fish the Delta on a regular basis, especially with topwaters! :bowdown:
Do you fish a lot of swimbaits? I always hear how that is so much the thing in Cali. I honestly havent tried them over in SC yet. ::) I keep saying I will but then I always ending up blowing my money on something else besides some swimbaits. I think this spring I will promise myself to buy and try some.

Very true, fish can be missed pretty easy on a frog. A lot of it though depends on the angler. Many anglers will set the hook on site. This can be a fatal mistake quite often. Always set the hook on feel rather than site. A buddy of mine taught me to fish buzzbaits (which adhere to same rule: set by feel not by site) by closing my eyes after I cast and while I retrieved so that I never saw the fish strike and only felt him. Worked like a charm :)

On the other hand if we start to talk about frogs like the Spro, design becomes a major factor. Some frogs are not as well designed as others and the hooks sit too close to the plastic body and the plastic body can be too stiff so that it doesnt squeeze out of the way as easy as it should.

Zoom finesse worm in pumpkin or watermellon fished weightless texas style
For the longest time, Zoom pumpkin was my favorite color on a number of baits: centipede, u-tail, trick and finesse! I still use it an awful lot just that the past year or so I have become obsessed with soft jerkbaits! lol

I must admit, I havent fished the zoom finesse weightless. You say you fish it the same as the fluke? Just a slow retrieve with a twitch here and there? How are you fishing it if ya dont mind me askin? I should give it a try.
I normally fished the zoom finesse with a small weight.. if its not texas rigged its on a split shot or a carolina rig. I believe id like to try it weightless.
