Most hollow-body mouse lures on the market today are a little smaller and weigh a little less than hollow-body frogs. Most also come with a single tail as opposed to two plastic or rubber skirt legs. In the tackle shop, I'd say anglers opt for the frog over the mouse nine times out of ten. And why not? There are, after all, a lot more frogs than mice swimming in the pads. But let's say you're dealing with finicky bass that won't hit a larger, louder frog because of fishing pressure or ultra-clear water. That's when I reach for the mouse. The smaller profile, lighter weight, and single tail instead of double legs will create less of a surface disturbance. It seems counterproductive during a topwater bite, but in several instances, I've had more success with a mouse that I could finesse more subtly than a frog that created a significant wake and splashed down harder. If you're still in love with your hollow-body frog and don't believe my mouse theory, try removing the frog's legs next time the bass are hitting without committing. Instead of hitting the legs, the bass key right in on the body (where the hook) is, and your connection ratio will go up.
