Frog Fishing for Bass in Winter?

Fishing frogs for largemouth bass in the winter time isn’t a common approach in bass fishing. In this video, I was bass fishing on a really warm day in December. The water was reaching the low 70’s and bass were starting to move up shallow to feed on shad that were in the backs of some pockets on the lake. I decided to throw a topwater frog around some grass to see if there where any largemouth bass that would come up and hit a topwater back in the grass. Amazingly, I had a few bass explode on my frog! They were very aggressive hits and I had to set the hook quick to try and bring the fish out of the weeds. I was fishing a heavy baitcasting rod and reel set up with braided line. This was my first bass ever on a topwater frog in the month on December.

Justin Rackley, known as Lakeforkguy in the fishing world, creates fishing and outdoor videos on youtube and other social platforms. LFG provides fishing tips and techniques for mostly largemouth bass fisheries but also travels to other freshwater and saltwater fishing spots to explore new fish species and fishing techniques to show as many fishing places as possible and help you catch more fish. Lakeforkguy likes to hang out on any fishing vessel or go bank fishing with his other YouTube Fishing friends and vlog with his Wife Stephanie and french bulldog Winston.

  1. Yeah, it's been warm here in Austin as well. Got a a bite or two in Buda but, wasn't able to land a LMB. Hopefully, in a few days, I'll land a LMB or two.

  2. i would hate to see youll come up north here in the winter i would kill to have weather like that -8 3 inchs of ice 4 inch of snow as we speak here where i live

  3. LOL Nice slomo! That's awesome that you got a December frog fish! I woke up at 13 degrees this morning in Washington!

  4. Great video! You're videos seem to be getting better and better Justin! It'd be great to fish with you some time

  5. Watching your videos makes me believe in my self. I always tell my parents I want to bass fish for a living it may not happen but I hope it will. My parents think I waste my time watching YouTube but videos like yours and other fishing youtubers teach me a lot and make me think about the things I could do in the fishing community.

  6. What brand of frog is that? Is it reliable? I've had many different name brand frogs and most have torn to pieces after 4-5 fish. You have any recommendations LFG?

  7. You should definitely do one of those back water kayak fishing trips like you did w your dad

  8. Me and a buddy had good luck on white zoom horny toads a few weeks ago it may have been 47 degrees in AL that night but we still got a 5 and a 6 pounder

  9. JUSTIN!!! Happy New Year! That was Sick Dude! Incredible that a lot of the YouTube "fishers" are trying new or I should say "different" things (well the same baits, just different months) to catch some some Nice fish. I glance down to see it is 29 degrees here (Northeast Ohio) now and think, Tuesday it MAY go up to 58. (Sorry I meant in MAY it will go up to 58) jk. Maybe I'll get out. But I'll have to try for steelhead!!! Tight Lines my friend!

  10. I love the sound that reel makes when it spools out. my Lews is great, but that thing just sounds so awesome.
