Deps Basirisky Hard Belly Frog - $18.99 to $19.99

The Deps Basirisky Hard Belly Frog continues to raise the level of innovation with the addition of a hard polycarbonate belly. The hard belly design actually enhances many of the characteristics that made the original design so successful and adds a few benefits of its own. The unique forward facing 'legs' still help create the Basirisky Frog's unique action and also provide a larger profile, making the bait an easier target for lurking bass. As the bait is retrieved, it crawls in a rocking motion across the water's surface leaving behind a huge ripple. The hard polycarbonate belly actually accentuates this motion and improves the frog's balance as well, providing softer and better landings on casts.

Equipped with a single Owner hook, the hard belly allows only one side of the frog to compress. This improves the frog's hook up ratio by projecting the hook into the hungry bass' mouth and leaving less wiggle room for the bass to get off the hook. The bait is also vented to allow air to escape quickly, making compression more complete. Effective anywhere you would think of throwing a frog or rat, the Deps Basirisky Hard Belly Frog is an effective fish catcher on the mats, in thick grass or scattered vegetation, and even in open water.

Featuring a new hard polycarbonate belly:

  • Enhances the balance and action of the frog
  • Provides a better hook up ratio

Comments: Great bait, especially in moderately dense vegetation. It really excels being worked through the heavy stuff like a typical frog, but as soon as it hits open water, just straight reel it. The bass can't resist it.  Rarely do I catch small fish on this bait. Take some time and learn how to properly use it and pay attention to when it gets hit. A very productive bait.

Comments: I have been fishing with this frog for about 2 years now. I love it. I have landed some decent size Bass on it. I think this frog gets some bad comments. Give it some time to work on you. It does act like a jitterbug in the open water. Nothing wrong with that.
I hardly ever get drag any weeds back with it. It acts really nice on top of weed beds. A+ from me.

From: Mark: Wheeling, Illinois, USA

Comments: i prefer this frog over all others... due to the fact that when fished correctly, this is a tournament winning frog. i have put small weights on the nose.. pushing it up and down on the surface of the water. and this helps a ton. last year i caught a 40-50 percent of my bass using this method!

From: Cole: USA

Comments: First of all, most of you probably do not know how to fish this frog, it is fished like a weedless jitterbug! Imagine the potential this bait has! Your classic jitterbug action when slowly retrieving but in weedless form! throw this over the thick stuff and watch it do the work for you! Great lure, one of the most fun top water baits to fish! Great hook up ratio as well!

From: Rob: Lewistown, PA

Comments: I agree this frog gets blown up on all the time but it has terable hook ups

From: Patrick

Comments: patrick it is pretty obvious that you dont have a clue on how to fish a frog bait, your the only dude in this forum of comments that is very negative about deps products. before i found out about deps i only fished with koppers and spro and some other frogs that were almost the same yea they all are great frogs no doubt  but deps is a game changer. wouldnt you like to catch bigger bass!!!!! i think everybody would. it is perfectly clear to alot of fisherman that all the deps frogs do!!!!!!!! CATCH more and bigger fish the performance in the water is the total key . when worked properly in the water they look alot more like food to a bass then the competition.PERFORMANCE THAT IS THE ANSWER.yea the koppers is a killer looking frog but that is were it ends . you put it up to the slither k or the basirisky, it will out fish the koppers 5 to 1 everytime. if you dont believe me  i will invite you to fish with me and your eyes will open big  i will prove it!!!!!!! you fish with your frogs and i will fish with mine  you will see the difference!!!!!!

From: Jim: Lake Tomahawk, WI

Comments: Patrick, you obviously don't know what you're doing cause the bass can't stand the side to side wobble this frog makes on the retrieve and annihilate it.  Very unique and different action from all other frogs.  This is one of my best producing frogs!  Every other feedback is positive so buy it!

From: Brandon: Virginia Beach, VA

Comments: well worth the money......great bait..not just a night time bait....95%hook ups best frog

From: Greg: Brighton, MI

Comments: You really want to add some action and catch a lot more fish on this lure I have a tip for fishing the frog. Tie you about 8 inches of line on to the hook and Texas rig you a black floating worm on it. It will drive the fish wild. Bass will eat it up. Crank it real slow just enogh to get the plop, plop going and then stop the lure every 3 or 4 feet. They will bust it hard. It works great and night and daytime out in the open water around the stumps and lay down trees. Use the 70mm it works the best. Makes more noise and casts a lot farther. Try this tip and you will be amazed at what you catch.

From: William: Hohenwald, TN

Comments: Love this frog. My absolute favorite night bait. Period. Because this bait moves slower than a buzz bait (just for example) this allows bass to track better at night. The slow clumsy wobble drives them nuts. Reminds me of fishing a Jitterbug at night when I was a kid, but this bad boy is so much more weedless. You can take the risk and throw it close around and into cover. The wobble is better than a Jitterbug though. Looks like (or at night, SOUNDS like) it drank a six-pack of beer and went for a swim!

The bait's action is totally killed when fishing matted grass and pads, but not a big deal. In this situation just fish like a Spro. I usually just fish it around the edges of cover and along the bank. Even though it does not wobble on grass mats, when it hits an open spot, resumes wobble again. Makes more of a splash when you jerk the rod too. Other hollow frogs don't do this. Try one!

From: Josh: Indiana, USA

Comments: I fish frogs all of the time. I love this frog. If you really want to experience topwater fishing at its best, tie you one of these babies on at night and hold on. I fished Pickwick lake last weekend and I bet if I had kept up with it, I had 50 explosive strikes. We caught a bunch of fish, and we missed a lot more than we caught. I don't think that it is the baits fault that you miss a lot of fish. They hit it so hard that they try to kill it. Give a kid a Zebco 33 reel and tie one on and he will be your fishing partner forever. I love this bait. I have both sizes and I prefer the 70 size because it will waddle a lot better and cast farther than the 60. Tacklewarehouse has the best selection and price of anyone, anywhere.

From: William: Hohenwald, TN

Comments:  I love this bait!!! this is THE BEST FROG ever!!!

From: Marcel: Luzern, Schweiz

Comments:Brilliant frog design, has become one of my favorite topwater lures. Bass absolutely crush it! Really fun to fish! My absolute favorite night fishing lure. Fishesliene, a backwards weedless Jitterbug on steroids! Surprisingly, caught my personal best smallie on Lake Huron (not far from Mackinac Island area) fishing this frog around pads. Hook up ratio not 100%, but even the violent misses are great fun because they really get your adrenaline pumping!This frog shouldn't replace your Spro frog, but it is a terrific addition to any frog box because it offers such a unique action that few bass have seen! Try one out!

From:Josh: Noblesville, IN

Comments:Best Frog Bait ever!!! I have fished every frog bait there is, ( including the Spro Frogs). The Basirisky Frog is easily the best at casting, drawing strikes, and getting solid hook ups!! I tried both the small and large one, but ended up just using the big boy. It casts extremely far on 65 lb braid. My hook up rate is very high, at least 90% or better !! The most durable frog ever too. I have been using the same , soft belly model, for two years now and it is not torn at all, and I have caught many bass on it.

From:Blake: Cullman, AL

Comments:Got both versions. The bigger version (70mm) seems to waddle better than the smaller one. I can throw both versions pretty far. Personally, it seems to me that the bait works better at night. Hook up rate is about 60-70%. I like the SPRO frog better than this one cause when this one sits still there is extra no action from the frog. With the SPO at least the legs are still fluttering. Once the weeds get tangle into the hook the bait doesn't walk as well. And for about the same price you can get two SPRO frogs.
