      How well do Frog and Toad style baits work?

I have become intrigued by the Zoom Horny Toads and the smaller Zman Finesse Frogz.
These are top water soft plastic swimming frogs with legs that make a gurgling action on the surface-(different than the "walking frogs" or "Pad crasher" types of frogs"
Are these worth the extra space? Or will I just do better with the spook, wake bait, rapala, skitter pops etc.

All those other things you listed are NOT weedless. There was a trip while on Fourtown we could not find any pike or smallies till we threw frogs and buzzbaits into emerged weeds. Then they blew up like crazy anywhere we found weeds at the top. So...if weedless I'd say one or two of any style are worth it. If they're not, then they're just as useful as the others you mentioned.

I’ve had better luck with Zara super spooks, Whopper Ploppers, PopR, and wacky worms. If you have heavy Lilly pads you might to bring a frog or two. Otherwise leave them at home.

Zmans finesse frog is too small in my opinion. They have a bigger one that works well. We have spent hours giggling at blow ups on the Ribbett frogs. We always have a pack or two at the ready.
