This is the third time a frog is getting hooked on the snagproof original frog[bait].. previous time the frog kept chasing the bait till it got hooked and had to release him someplace else so that i could continue fishing.. it was lip hooked since it took the bait in its mouth n tried to run away with it..So i am just curious.. DO FROG EAT FROGS or JUST DESPRATE FOR ..X!

Interesting and strange phenomenon. Never experienced the same. You should have recorded the complete incident.

Really very amazing.

Regards,

Ali. :D

I echo the point made by IJAHTNAS or maybe as you said...it might be the mating time for these folks.

Anyone who can shed some light on the mating period and names of these frogs?

It's a frog eat frog world!


I have seen them catch small birds. And once a few tadpoles that turned into frog in my daughter's aquarium decided to dinner on the guppies. So I guess they go for anything that moves.

The common Indian frog, Rana hexadactila, has the habit of attacking any new object that enters the water.
Throw a cigarette butt into a small pond with many frogs and you will notice that many frogs leap at the butt. Having felt that the butt cannot be eaten they backup.
Probably this is a phenomena just like that.
Your moving lure must have attracted the frogs to attack it by instinct.
I am not sure whether frogs eat frogs!!!!!!!

I guess ravinp is right.. i did notice that even the tiny frogs were chasing the artificial frog..so i guess its just the instinct to attack anything that moves into their territory... Thanks ppl for posting ur opinions ... I thought it was the foreplay that got him hooked.. he he..jus kidding..

I too agree with Ravi , looks more of an attack out of aggression while protecting its territory
I too had a similar experience last year while reeling in my halco plug was a little bit heavy and I thought it might be some plastic bag snagged in the hooks but to my surprise saw a small catfish hooked from side

and I asked my self is it Curiosity that tried to kill this Cat ??? and the answer I think was :P Territorial Aggression
the Cat returned to the water a bit wiser :P

Well!!! the first thing came into my mind, when I just read the subject of your post was that X factor, and I was really delighted when I saw same concerns in your post and replies. :D
May be the curiosity killed that fellow or XorY, what ever;
but there are 2 +ve outcomes of the story, i.e.,
1. Your frog (the rubber one) is really great
2. You are perfect in recognizing and hooking a slight bite.

and
btw have you ever been in a satiation when u mistakenly recognized a mannequin in a shopping mall as a pretty Lady, ofcourse from a distance) :roll:
