Stick with the Koppers Live Target frogs. IMO they have a better hook up ratio

The Jackall Iobee frog is very good. I walks as easy as any out there, the hookups are good and the material is nice and soft.

+2 on the iobee frog! Walks great and the hook sets quite nicely. Might be too big a profile for down there though. Are you using the smallest koppers frog? The iobee is about the size of the medium sized koppers frog.

Zoom Horny Toad is a consistent prodoucer for me. I've caught dinks to 5 lbers with it.

+3 to the Jackall Iobee. No need to modify it, walks easy and a really strong, sharp hooks.

I have heard decent reviews of the Booyah frog, but haven't tried one yet.

I find the iobee frog the easiest to walk too and the action seems more lively than other frogs. Only potential downside is that it is a pretty big frog but as they sat big baits for big fish

My last frog fish (really warm day in early November), was a dink (10-12 inches) that hit the Iobee pretty hard. Had both hooks in the top of his mouth. :lol:
