Rated 2 out of 5 by Dizzy Nothing exciting
My son was not impressed by these frogs. A bit pricey for the minimal amount that you receive

These Ribbits are always stocked in my bag. Great for buzzing top water in and around vegetation and open water. I do highly recommend to use them with the Stanley double take hooks, you can use a single EWG hook but the DTH's will increase hook ups and the screw attachment will not tear up the nose of the Ribbit as the EWG hook would.

Well made, durable frog that has great action in the water. The paddle tails really allow you to fish this bait in a variety of ways. You can swim it, hop it over pads, or twitch it just below the surface of the water. Overall, nice product for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dave More fun than fishing!
I was looking for a small frog after I could not get the fish to bite on everything else I tried in my local lake (these fish have been caught & released many times & are wary) Searching the multitude in fishing yielded nothing, so I asked for help. The Dicks rep said they did not have it on the shelves, but might have some in the back. He returned with this "frog thingie" that I thought was way too big for my needs. I was going to pass on it, but he kept explaining that he uses it to skip across lily pads, & you need a special hook, which he promptly picked out for me. (how could I say No.)
My 1st attempt was disappointing, I used the wrong hook, & the frog kept spinning. My 2nd attempt, in the Passaic river was a lot more fun. I tossed it into the lilly pads, & the dang thing caught every pad it passed, resulting in "oh I am going to lose this thing." So I tried casting next to the pads, & held my rod vertical to keep the hook/frog orientation lifelike, & sure enough, this frog started swimming! legs kicking, looked good enough to eat! Every time I paused, the frog would dive to the bottom like a real frog,. reel it in & once it hits the surface, the dang thingie swims like Mark Spitz! Now if I practice, I hope to be able to skip this heavy thing over the lilliy pads. But even if you don;t catch any fish, you will have hours of fun playing with this dohicky!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JHUMP69 Incredible frog!!!
The scent on this plastic frog is seriously intense I don't know if that is why it works so good or if it is the unique swim action but this thing seriously works!!! Be sure to buy the double frog hook that Stanley sells as well, if you try to use a regular single hook spring lock hook it will not swim properly.

Great topwater bait for fishing in or around heavy cover. I use them around heavy grass//hydrilla, and around lily pads. Produces more commotion and noise than a other toads, and seems to work better when there is a little ripple on the water. Great little bait. Use a Owner 4/0 Wide Gap plus, fits it perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MickBassMaster006 Impressive Movement
Fished weeds and was very impressed with the ease at which the bait moves through thick bush. Movement mimics live frog. If I were a fish I would bite it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Drf615 Decent.
Honestly, I like the frog for the most part. The action in the water is fantastic and the legs are perfect. However, it is composed of a plastic that I believe is too stiff and doesn't ensure solid hook sets if you use a worm hook like the kind that doesn't show too far above the body for heavy cover. I always get hits on this bait from pickerel and bass but no matter how I do the hook set the hook never "sets" in the fishes mouth.
