Making Frogging (Even More) Fun

What are the two most pleasing bites in fishing?

Clearly – to me, at least – you’ve got to put the frog at or near the top for sheer explosiveness, and while it’s a relative newcomer to the scene, no one with any sense could fault you if you placed the Whopper Plopper up there, too.

Up until now, they’ve lived in separate worlds, with the Plopper having the sound advantage and the frog being able to go where the hard-bodied topwater’s trebles do not dare to tread.

Fortunately, my friend Hideki Maeda is both a problem solver and frog freak, and his new bait called the “Sprinker” marries the two baits. It’ll join his Choker, Whacker and Honker in his Teckel Lures lineup. If the power of these two great lures are additive, this is going to be a lot of fun. I really hope that I get to be the first person to fish the Sprinker on several local bodies of water, because the strikes should be ridiculous. If they’re anything like I expect them to be, the folks at Lucky Craft, who will distribute the lure in the US, should offer up a free defibrillator with each three Sprinkers you buy.
