(Jul 11, 2018 - FORT SMITH, AR.) Some say working a toad bait is an art form, reserved only for the elite anglers. But the new YUM® Tip Toad simplifies the presentation and entices more bites for all anglers.
 
The Tip Toad has a durable, solid body designed to plane quickly, important for immediately creating the action needed. Precisely placed tails with custom shaped feet provide maximum water displacement, creating a uniquely distinctive sputtering sound mimicking a fleeing frog or baitfish. The bait is valued for casting into vegetation, brush piles, dock piers and even open water.

The hook placement notch on the Tip Toad's belly provides perfect hook alignment when rigging with a 4/0 or 5/0 frog or wide-gap hook. Rig weightless like any toad bait. The 3/8-ounce body aids in casting.

The most popular presentation uses a high-speed reel with a 6-foot, 10-inch or 7-foot, 4-inch medium-heavy power graphite rod with a sensitive, fast-action tip and strong butt. Braided line gives the angler the option of fishing the heaviest grass.

The 4.5-inch Tip Toad is offered in ten colors with an MSRP of $2.99 for a 5-count bag.
