Lure Make & Model

The KVD Sexy Frog is one of the finest, feature-packed, frog-style baits yet from Strike King. Chief among its features are a sealed nose, which minimizes water entry, and a free-floating rattle to create the noise needed to get those lunkers' attention. Designed and approved by Kevin VanDam for open water and heavy cover applications, it's an ideal bait for great topwater frog action!

KVD Sexy Frog

If you have seen any of my other reviews or forum posts, you will know right away that I'm a frog addict. Love throwing the frog into pads and grass more than any other fishing technique. Because of this, I've owned and thrown just about every brand and style of hollow topwater bait made. I can tell you, they all work. If you walk a frog through the pads, it's going to get strikes. The big difference in frogs comes down to three main points for me. Cast ability, durability and hook up percentage.

If you want to save some time, I'll sum up the review by saying the KVD Sexy Frog knocks it out of the park in all three categories.

Cast ability. There are some hollow baits that just don't throw well. Whether it's because of their lack of weight or the design catches too much air they just don't fly well. The KVD sails like a champ. It's no problem getting to the back of the pads with this one. A+

Durability is HUGE when throwing a hollow bodied bait. It's no fun dropping $6+ on a bait and having the legs come off after a few casts in the rough stuff. That is not an issue with this lure. The skirt style legs are super durable and I'm yet to completely wear one out. So for durability and value this one get an AA+.

Now hook up percentage is pretty subjective at best. Let's face it, a lot of this comes down to feel and angler skill. I will be the first to admit that I miss more fish than I catch when fishing pads with a frog. But, some baits really do hook up better than others. For me and the way I fish the KVD leads the pack on hook ups. Now your milage my vary but I'll still give this one an A.

Overall a great topwater bait and by far and away my favorite frog lure.

KVD Sexy Frog

This is the frog I have tied on 90% of the time when I frog fish. I do not frog fish a ton, but it is something I told myself I need to work on. The Sexy frog makes it a bit easier. I do not "walk the dog" like an expert, but the KVD frog makes it easier.

Most of my frog fishing is in cover or over matted grass. The KVD frog glides through that perfectly. It is very hard for a bass to resist.

At 2 1/2" long and 5/8 ounce, the frog makes just the right impression in the water. Also a very easy frog to really get some distance, The only con I have to this frog is that it tends to hold a small amount of water. A simple squeeze every 3rd or 4th cast will take care of that.

If you are going to throw a frog, do yourself a favor and give the KVD Sexy Frog a shot the next time you are out.

KVD Sexy Frog

I recently bought a couple Kevin Van Dam Sexy Frogs by Strike King to use in a Snakehead tournament. I've use some topwater frogs in the past but the Sexy Frog is much better than any I've used before. I was able to cast a long distance and into some really nasty, thick grass and Lilly pads without even a single snag. I caught Snakeheads with the Sexy Frog while others were having no luck with other lures, including top water frogs from other brands. Every other fisherman in the tournament who caught a Snakehead also caught them on a Sexy Frog. That's worth repeating... no one caught a Snakehead on anything other than a KVD Sexy Frog! While i was targeting Snakeheads, I also caught two bass on the Sexy Frog as well. Bottom line: This is the brand to go with if you're looking for a quality top water frog to throw into the thickest, nastiest, cover.
