Crawfish/frog lures

Postby gyro » Wed May 21, 2003 7:06 pm

I've never used crawfish lures before but saw some Rebel crawfish lures at Walmart today. Anyone use them before? Are they just as effective as spinners/husky jerks/etc when fishing for freshwater fish?

Crawdad colored or lures that mimic crawdads or crayfish do work.
Live ones are great too.

Frog lures, I think it depends on the lake. Some lakes with a lot of vegetation will of course work better than others. I threw the weedless frog before with fish blowing up on it, but it's hard to hook them sometimes. Make sure you allow the fish to take and inhale the frog lure before you set the hook hard! Then start dragging it out of the weeds.

Gyro,

Crawfish imitating lures have worked great for me. Crawfish colored Bandit 100s, and a Jig and Pig (I think it is supposed to imitate a crawfish) have woked great for me the last few weeks on tidal potomac.

Thanks for the tip, KoYak. I just bought a weedless frog lure today and i'll be trying it out on a good pike lake sometime this week. I'll try my Rebel crawfish lure too to compare.
