Been watching him for over a month. He would follow the mower around the pond. Tried every lure known to man. Couldn't get him to bite on anything. After seeing a frog go in, he destroyed it. So I caught one and the rest is history. Both frog and bass are back in the pond smile

What a beauty. It is incredible the food they can eat. Guess you only get that big if you feed the beast.

Well done.

How did the frog survive the 'encounter?'

They pond is just north of half an acre. Not sure on age of the fish, the pond is 12 years old.

Sunil, SOO... I hooked the frog through the bottom lip and lightly tossed him out into the pond. The frog took care of the rest swimming around until catching the eye of the bass. When the bass hit the frog got the hooked push through and was sliding up the line. It was crazy to see but one great story. I took a picture of the frog because I think i'm going to get him put into my replica mount somehow.
