I'm just sitting here in my office, watching some fishing videos on YouTube and I'm just super excited to get back out fishing this year. I've mentioned before, but I subscribe to Mystery Tackle Box and have about 5 months of lures built up from my subscription boxes that I'm super pumped to get out and try. One of the things they've sent me a few of is top water frogs. I know lots of people love them, but I've never had any luck with them. How does everyone fish those? Do you only cast over weeded areas or are people throwing those in more open water (ponds I assume?). I'm also thinking of getting a jigging rod. Last year I got my casting reel/rod and am itching for a new fishing purchase. About twice a year I go out with my uncle and jig for walleye and it's fine with my casting reel but I'd like one specifically meant for jigging/trolling with a line counter. I'm counting down the weeks until my fishing trip up north the first week of june.
