Anybody use these with regular success? Was at Dick's Sporting Goods at Alliance off Heritage Trace yesterday, they had them on sale if you bought 3 you got them for $4 each, $9.99 reg. price. I didn't pull the trigger cause I thought they might be like the Livingston lures, all flash no substance. If enough respond positive, will have to rethink, and go buy a few.

I have had good success with them. Only exception is the Live Target frog hook up ratio is lower than some of the other frogs on the market, but they look and hold up as well as most manufactures peep

Frogs looked good, realistic etc, but was concerned too about hook ups. Paint schemes on the hardbaits looked good too,n but wondered how they would hold up. Thanks to all who respond to this post.

I like the hollow bodied sunfish.

I fish the sunfish all the time, its a good bait however the paint will wear off. If that bothers you, just keep sharpies on hand to touch it up. The hook up ratio is not that good so you can get some LFT trailer hooks to add to it. Also don't worry to much if the paint wears off, the profile is what really drives them least in my opinion. Haven't tried the Frogs yet cause I can buy Booyah popping frogs a lot cheaper, and I am having great success with those

The livetarget hollow body frod is my favorite. Really surprised to hear that some have had hookup issues with it. Its my highest percentage frog by far.

I have a square bill crank, looks really good.... But the paint is wearing off the area from the blade to the area that would be "ears" after only about 15 minutes of use.
