Just wanted to get some input on these guys, I made them out of balsa and used some glass eyes that i got off ebay. Hope to try them out this week, thank God for spring.

Those Look Great!!
They would look good in my tacklebox, or better on my line!
Great Job! Keep it up!

Awesome frogs Wade. Nice design work. I like the way you have the eyes forward on the lure.

Thanks guys, coming from you it means alot. I'll let you know how they do. Doesn't look good for this week, this work thing sure does get in the way of my fishing

Those frogs wouldn't have a chance here on the California Delta.
They would be eaten for sure!
Also really like the glass eyes. Did you buy or make the eyes?

FISH JC, I bought the eyes from a guy on ebay, he sent me a note that said he had 500,00 more pairs from 2mm to 32mm. in all colors. the ones that i used are 8mm. It's been a couple months so I sent him a email asking if he still has them for sale. when he replies i'll let you know what he says. Thanks for the compliments on the lures, making them really helps me relax.

Here in the Delta we got allot of cheese mats.
Having the fish come up and hit the frogs on top is a blast.
Early summer to late fall is notorious for catching these nice frog eating Delta bass.
Allot of Clear Lake fisherman toss frogs all year long.
Your lure would be great
Cool let me know what dude has available when you here from him.
Would be intrested in 9mm and 12mm sizes
Let me know

I would like to get a hold of some of those eyes for my trout swimbait that im almost finished with.

The eyes look like they might have come from a taxidermy supply.
Fish JC, I've not heard of a cheese mat. Is that a scum film that covers the waters surface?

Yea kind of
Just imagine the green hair moss caked up real thick.
In the hot summer months it turns greenish yellow on the surface.
I guess it looks like cheese.?. Fish love sitting underneath it.
