9-Pound Frog-Eating Largemouth Nearly Induces Heart Attack

By Joe Cermele

I love this video because it perfectly captures something that every fisherman has experienced; the unexpected boat-side eat. As you'll see, the angler is chucking a topwater frog against a bank. Just like most of us would do, he zips it back to the boat after nothing strikes close to shore, and just as he lifts the lure out of the water, WHAM-O! If you've always wondered what it sounds like when a true bucketmouth bass eats on top, turn up your speakers. It also makes you wonder if that bass was sitting close to the boat, or swam fast enough from the bank to actually keep up with the lure and nail it at the last second.

That was great! I would bet it either followed it in or came at it from an angle. Fishing for Smallmouth on our crystal clear Ozark rivers here in Missouri. I have had Bass shoot in from over 30 feet away and take my lure near the boat. They swim so fast, they are just a brown streak in the water.

Awesome video. Listen to the birds in the background. Sounds like a pretty good day on the water even BEFORE the lunker struck!

That monster just couldn't resist that Lunkerhunt Frog! Those crazy legs can make the difference between follows and big strikes...

I agree with Gerry about the legs being a factor - my fishing buddy was recently fishing with a plastic top water frog with rubber legs. He caught 3 Northern Pike on 3 casts but the last fish chewed the legs off. This was the only top water weedless frog that we had along and he never had another strike afterward with the now legless frog.

That's the reason why you never see a live frogs swimming in the middle of a lake.
