      what lake is it called

    3. VikingOutdoor

      All I can say is wouldn't want to be a real Frog hopping those lily pads. Those are some big bass! Nice fishing!

      Pickrel frog's are green. Leopard frog's are brown.

    7. Dave Smith

      It would be hard for me to come home after having a day there on the lake and catching the Bass you did. Note to self, Put Frog Lure on List....

      I’ve been using a 14lb fluorocarbon 4’ leader to frog fish. Do you think it won’t hurt to tight straight on to my 30lb braid for more muscle? Do you run a FC leader with other top water lures like a whopper plopper?

      1. Joe S.

        @NDYakAngler thanks for the insight. I’m gonna experiment this spring with braid only. I fish pike in a similar way top water. 40lb braid to a 100lb MAB lures flouro leader. I never lost one with that setup. Although they don’t run as big here in southern Michigan. You have some monsters in your backyard.

      2. NDYakAngler

        I direct tie braid to the frog, mainly because every frog I’ve ever fished had heavy duty hooks and I don’t want any weak link for the strong hook sets or for pulling fish out of cover. I’ve always had the thought that I’m fishing it around thick cover where the line will be better camouflaged so a leader isn’t really necessary. I’ve had plenty of fish smash the frog tied to 30-40lb braid in clear open water though so maybe lures like the Whopper Plopper would be fine on braid too. I’ll generally fish that on 14lb mono for bass because I like clear line on the clear rivers I fish but who knows maybe braid would work with a mostly reaction strike lure like that. I do think if the fish are at all finicky or I’m pausing the lure and fishing it slower I have a better chance of catching them with less visible line. If I’m fishing a Plopper for pike I’ll go with my frog fishing rod with 30lb braid and tie a 50lb fluoro leader. That worked pretty well for me last year for bigger topwater lures, I lost one to a bite off but landed about 50 pike or musky over the season with that setup.

      If Minnesota is a couple hours north of you, I’m thinking you’re from Iowa. I’m in Ames and always looking for spots. If you see this and know any good spots in Iowa you’re willing to share, I’d appreciate it! Thanks and good luck fishing!

      WOW DUDE !!! That was awesome !!! I really felt the hype of fishing through your video and also I take the advice to improve my frog fishing skills. Congrats for your video and other videos too !!! If I can go to US this year I would love to go fishing with you !!!

    27. laundry hati

      good bait for snakehead fish but sometimes gets caught in lotus plants.

    28. Makc Seer

      only bass?

      1. NDYakAngler

        There’s no snakeheads in this lake. It has bass, northern pike, panfish, and probably some walleye too.

    29. Makc Seer

      snakeheads in river?

    30. Makc Seer

      You! not bad - buddy

    31. Wonky Lommiter

      I wouldn't want to be a frog living in that area! life expectancy..... zero to very low.

      Hello, Salomon shoes???

      1. Men Асе

        @NDYakAngler Thank you I understand... It seemed to me that the remote control on your chest drives an electric motor

      2. NDYakAngler

        @Men Асе The kayak is a Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120. I don’t have any kind of motorized propulsion, it’s paddle powered only. I do have a motor unit that I attach to the back often for river fishing but that’s just a motorized anchor stake, a Power Pole micro anchor. The Tarpon 120 has a great hull for paddling efficiently and that’s one reason I haven’t upgraded to a bigger wider kayak, it cuts through river current so well. As long as I’m pointed into the current I have plenty of time to throw a cast or two before I have to grab the paddle and prevent myself from drifting backwards with the river flow.

      3. Men Асе

        @NDYakAngler I liked your KGup channel very much Cool fishing, beautiful ponds and places ... With a huge greetings from Russia

      4. Men Асе

        @NDYakAngler Can you clarify the brand of the kayak and what kind of electric motor system ??? It seemed to me that she taxied herself against the current ...

      5. Men Асе

        @NDYakAngler Thanks✌✌

    41. Owen Jonker

      its always best when the bass jumps right in front of the boat

    42. Johnny Stirstick

      Always find it hilarious when Americans say "up north" such a Ontario thing to say

      1. Owen Jonker


    43. David Bronstein

      Amazing video! When do you set the hook on these tweaked frogs? I’ve seen vids recommend waiting a second or two, to ensure bass has whole frog in mouth. Some even say wait till you feel frog on line. Others say hit em hard and fast for most frogs, maybe with exception of Teckle Sprinker frog, which benefits from a bit of a wait before setting the hook. My experience has only been with toads: for those, you definitely need to wait a bit, reel down on slack and then set the hook. But I’m new to frogging so would appreciate the feedback!

      1. NDYakAngler

        I set the hook as soon as a fish hits the frog. They really seem to inhale it around here and the hooks usually end up buried in the mid to back part of their mouth with an instant hook set.

    51. Peter Vang

      I use albino frogs and it’s the best lure ever. Had the most catches with it but Pikes destroyed it lol gotta throw it away

    52. Gewglesux

      I just ordered a whole bunch of Frogs from TW and the hook up place.. . can't wait to try them.

    58. Ricko Febbri

      Better you use UKM lure or Pikatchu Lure

    59. Ohio Tracker

      I have done the same "re-tooling" of my frog lures as well. I'll get more a ton more connects than miss hits. Matt you are the ER Doc of fishing woes!!

      The last time I went anywhere near a lodge the beavers started slapping their tails on the water as a request for me to leave. I had just read about a woman who bled out after getting bit by a beaver so I politely paddled away. I do miss fishing up in Minnesota though.

    63. Raleigh Denton

      I caught a frog the size of a puppy with that frog lure

    64. Peterisheree

      That's the smallest bass I think I've seen you catch honestly. Which says a lot.

      1. Corne

        True haha

    73. ndspeedster

      cool trick.. but how do you keep the frog from landing on the water upside down??

      1. NDYakAngler

        ndspeedster The weight of the hooks keeps the frog right side up. Every now and then it will land upside down, as long as it doesn’t land directly on top of a mat of weeds give it a little twitch and it will correct itself.

    74. John Fanion

      It’s nice to watch you gently handling the fish,doing minimal damage to the fish,you sir are a fisher man!

    75. J W

      Those bass are really pretty. Full of color. A majority of the bass in the south. For lack of better knowledge sun bleached. I know that some fish are just different in color. But everyone of those fish you are catching are very pretty

      I bought one of those frogs ages ago. Fished with it all over the place in Korea and Japan, and never caught a damn thing. Then I took it to Sirikit Reservoir in Thailand, and chucked it out next to the sunken barge. About 50 fish came out as soon as it hit the water, a giant snakehead as big as my leg snaffled it, and then disappeared into a bamboo patch and busted me off. That was the end of that.

    96. James Morris

      Takes me back to my teenage years of bass fishing w live frogs on southern Mn lakes.. Great fun!

    97. Parker B

      You really don't realize the power of a fish until you hook on one while in a kayak Jesus they will pull you everywhere. Definitely takes practice. I know this is older but Love the videos.
