My New Years resolution this year is to return all of the customer's old Big Bass Photos to the website, especially to the FROGmen Fishing Reports Page for the various states and a few foreign countries. I know I said that last year, but this time its already happening. Some of the more impressive catches will be highlighted here first, and then added to their respective State webpages.




















































I am starting with this gorgeous Big Bass from Texas which was caught by tournament Pro James Kiser. James caught this bass on Lake of the Pines during a Cicada hatch. The Cicadas were coming from the nearby Pine Trees and attracted bass in the area to the surface. James switched to Designer Bass FROG: Clone Series FROG #2 because the color closely matched the color of the Cicadas. The FROG was bigger than the big bugs on the water, but James said, once the bass moved in for a closer look --- "they locked onto the leg action, and that took care of the rest". James also caught some 2-4 lb' ers that day, and he has caught other big bass on the FROGs in the past. You can see some of those other big bass caught by James on the Designer Bass FROGs in the Texas FROG Fishing Reports.


James says, "These things are awsome!"

Patrick Freeman liked the looks of an Original Series California Red Legs FROG for fishing in Louisianna and went right out after receiving them and nailed four 4 lb bass with it, proving that they will work well in Lousiana also. They look similar to a Bull FROG, but they have some red in the back kicking legs. There is also a "Red Phase of this species that can be almost entirely red with black spots. There is an example of each on the Original Series FROG and the Replicant Series FROG webpages.

Announcing a new Series of custom fishing lures !


It's the Designer Bass Bait Casting BUGs™

Hopefully, you have already seen my new YouTube Channel video about the Capt Ken's Designer Bass Casting BUGs™. They are a new Series of Custom TopWater Creature Baits. If you haven't you can click on this LINK to go to their new webpage on this site. There is also a LINK to the video there. There are a lot of new options there to help you "fish like nobody else" to fool the bass.

Rich Torgun was fishing off the beach on a rock jetty in Cape May, New Jersey and caught this beautiful 8 lb Weakfish on the Capt Ken's Designer Bass Shiner™. He was using Kit #2 with the Big Sinking Head and the Big Skinny Wild Shiner. Rich also caught two 4 lb Weakfish that same day. The Designer Bass Shiners™ are not just for bass. They will catch all types of predator fish "wherever big fish eat little fish! " The Designer Shiners™ are the best fishing lures I know for big Seatrout, Tarpon & Snook. When I get a chance, I will post a video of a monster channel catfish I caught while fishing Kit #1 with the Big Floating Head and the Big Skinny Shiner. The big catfish slammed it shallow and on topwater too, and then towed me out onto the open lake and up the St. John's River. It is a killer trophy bass  lure.

Billy Wilson bought his first Clone Series FROG back in July of this summer. In the photo above, he shows off his first bass caught on a Designer Bass FROG™ Clone Series FROG #4. Since that first FROG & bass, he has bought many more Clone Series FROGs, and even an Original Series: Pine Barrens Tree FROG. He has been catching many more bigger bass all summer and into the fall. With the temperatures suddenly dropping and taking the water temperatures from 73 degrees down to 59 degrees, he has been surprised to discover that the FROG bite is still "on" He recently caught 20 bass on the topwater FROGs under the much colder conditions. He sent the photo below, showing one of the recent bass with a Clone Series FROG that he customized with extra spots & markings with a permanent marking pen. Billy says these FROGs are now his favorite way to catch bass. But, he recently had had one of the new DragonFlies taken away from him by a very big bass on the second cast. So, he has ordered two more of those.

Billy is definitely stretching the limits of the topwater FROG fishing season in Illinois, but he may be dreaming about jumping Bass and DragonFlies all winter this year.

Darrell Hollifield is one of the founding members of the Tidewater Kayak Anglers Association, he was also one of my earliest customers for the Designer Bass FROGs™. As you can see, his Original Series Bronze Spotted Leopard is still catching bass for him after all these years. This Virgina Monster was almost 6 lbs. In the photo, below you can see the heavy pad cover Darrell had to pull this bass out of to get him into the kayak. Excellent is the only word to describe this kayak fishing photo. See also the photo below.

Check out this  23 inch Virginia State Citation Bass below, just caught on a Designer Bass FROG™: Clone Series FROG #4 - the Dark Brown Bull FROG. It was caught by Chuck Wrenn who is a FROG Fishing fanatic and who publishes his own FROG Fishing Blog---  Check out his Blog to keep up to date on FROG Fishing in his state. If that wasn't enough of a great day, he also got the whole thing on video, and it will be posted on YouTube, his Blog site and on this page very soon. Kayak FROG Fishing for monster bass ! It doesn't get any better than that !!

Okay, here it is ! The best video submitted by a user of the Designer Bass FROGs™ that I have seen to date. Chuck wrestled a monster bass out of some of the worst lily pads that anyone would want to attempt and did it from his kayak. He received a Virginia State Citation for his bass caught on a Designer Bass FROG™ Clone Series : FROG #4 - Dark Brown Spotted Bull FROG. Now, that's what I call Kayak Fishing FROG fishing for Monster Bass in Virginia --- or anywhere else ! You should really check out his FROG Fishing BLOG that he says was inspired by his love for the Designer Bass FROGs™. Just click the Logo below.
