Spro Bronzeye 65 Frog
The Dean Rojas Bronzeye (Bronze Eye) Frog, manufactured by Spro, is probably the most heralded frog ever introduced to the US market. Ever since Rojas won $40,000 fishing a frog bait at the Bassmaster Classic on Lake Wiley in 2004, the frog market has gone crazy and we have seen more frogs come on the market in a short time span than ever before. With all the great hollow-bodied frog baits already on the market, Dean Rojas knew he had to really put something extra into the design of the Bronzeye Frog to make it stand out.
The first unique feature you'll notice about the Rojas Bronzeye Frog is that it has been designed to utilize the full potential of Gamakatsu's EWG Double Frog Hook. The wire used in this hook is 2x strong, ensuring it can stand up to strong rods and braided lines. When you press down on the Bronzeye body you won't believe the amount of hook that is exposed, thanks to the EWG Hook, and how soft the plastic is.
The body of the frog is narrower and longer than other frogs on the market, with the exception of the Swamp Donkey, which will make the Bronzeye walk-the-dog easily in open water. The ‘nose' of the bait is anchored to the wire just behind the line tie eye, which has been welded closed so your super braid line cannot slip out. The weight is molded into the body and cannot fall off or move. The body resists filling with water, making the Bronzeye land correctly almost every time.
Another nice touch, showing that the bait was designed by someone who actually fishes frogs, is that the living rubber legs are secured inside the body of the Bronzeye so they will never pull out. They are also cut extra long so you can trim them to the length you like. The Bronzeye is a great all-purpose frog, good for thick mats, sparse grass, and open water.
