Lunkerhunt Prop Frog Review

reviewing the Lunkerhunt Prop Frog

I had a lot of fun reviewing the Lunkerhunt Prop Frog, and even caught two decent Bass on two short trips to a neighborhood pond. This frog lure catches bass, it’s that simple!

If you’re looking for an awesome top water lure, allow me to explain why Prop Frog is a great choice.

Pros and Cons of the Prop Frog

I really liked this lure and the pros definitely outweigh the cons, however, there are some things I didn’t like about it.


1. Awesome Action

The amount of action the prop legs have is similar to the Berkley Choppo, but twice the amount due to having two legs. It creates a lot of surface disruption and also makes a lot of “plopping” noise. It definitely does a great job of grabbing the attention of bass.

2. Detailed and Colorful

The detail of the paint was definitely meticulously done by hand. The pattern is symmetrical and neat, painted with natural looking colors you would see on a real frog. Now, I will say, I don’t know how much the color on top of the bait matters, because the bass will not see the top. The bottom is a natural yellowish color, which I think is the most important in terms of looking natural. Either way, the bass absolutely SLAM this lure.

3. It Catches Fish

Some lures I have tested simply don’t get any bites no matter how many times I throw out a cast, where I use them, and when I use them. When I was testing the Prop Frog, I caught three nice sized bass in two short trips. This speaks volumes about the quality and enticing presentation of this bait.

1. Paint Rubbed Off

Unfortunately, a small spot of paint came off on one of the legs. I wouldn’t necessarily blame the company because I have gotten snagged a couple times and have hit some rocks. I’m not sure exactly how it happened, but I do have to put this as a con because I’ve only used the bait a handful of times. However, I would not go as far as to say this lure is prone to the paint rubbing off.

2. Feet Get Stuck On The Hook

The main thing I didn’t like about the Lunkerhunt Frog is that the hook would get stuck on either one of the legs and it wouldn’t spin the feet properly if that happened. I’m not entirely sure if the end hook is actually necessary because it has the two classic hooks on either side of the body. This was just a minor annoyance when it happened, but it was very easy to fix.

How To Fish a prop frog: techniques and retrieve

Fishing with this topwater lure is pretty simple and comes down to your preference. You can straight retrieve it super fast, or you can straight retrieve it super slow. In addition to this, you can also use patterns/rhythms such as pauses in between reeling. Besides your reeling technique, the feet do most of the action for you, so this requires little if any finesse.

Is The Lunkerhunt Prop Frog good?

Yes, I think the Lunkerhunt Prop Frog is a high-quality lure that has great action, great pattern and colors, and most importantly catches big bass. It’s also much cheaper than the Spro Flappin Frog. So if you’re looking for a new topwater lure, I’d highly suggest giving the Prop Frog a shot.
