That lure looks like a subsurface spinner. The thia lures are topwater lures that cause a big comotion. When I fished in thailand we used these and they worked great for giant snakehead and I've noticed nearly every murrel Jean Francois Helias is holding on his website has one of these dangling from its mouth.

Yeah I've tried those in India..They won't work well if you always try to spin at the surface...Most of the snakeheads in India often hooks if you fish at the bottom of the ponds :D but they can also hook at the surface when the snakehead comes up for some fresh air ^^ .

But I've only tried to fish snakehead in North India...But in south of India, the giant snakehead can be found :) ! It will hook well on frog poppers just as yours ^^ .

I don't know about India, but they are hard for me to find in the US. I have found some off ebay.

Salmo I have used Kik's frogs here for the cobra and caught them and bass on them, but the Zoom Horny Toad or Ragetail Toad
still work the best. Not sure why. Kik's frogs work great on the giants over there in Malaysia and Thailand. I have probably over
a dozen of them, some are just to pretty to fish with. I'm still waiting on the rattlesnake head version. Then I will have them all!!

Scott

P.S. I will be fishing for the cobras in about two weeks, will post pictures if their worthy.

I got few of these, but they are sinking type with no dressing. Those are realy killing lure for snakehead. Never caught on floating lures, dont know why?

I've used this style frog - but I really dont like the trebles hanging down...doesnt let me allow the frog to work the top across scum and weeds as well as the double hook on top style frogs..having said that...I think this will be more successful at this time of the year when you have to get your lure working the mid to lower levels
