The Googan Squad Zinger is a double-bladed spinnerbait designed to bump, bang, and zing off cover and grass. The Zinger is designed to be fished around docks, stumps, and brush while also streamlining through the veggies with ease. Each Zinger features a strong wire framework, stout hook, and a flashy Colorado and willow blade.
The Googan Squad Zinger has a hand-tied skirt fastened around a sticky sharp Mustad hook. To help prevent line slippage, the Zinger also features a pre-rigged rubber knot stopper to keep your line from sneaking down the wire of the bait.
Pro Tip:Bump your Zinger against hard cover like docks, brush, laydowns, and trees to help create reaction strikes from fish holding tight to the cover. This technique helps create a reaction strike from fish who may likely not have bitten otherwise. Look for areas with shallow grass, cover, or feeding fish and work your Zinger using an erratic retrieve, slowing down in cool water while speeding up in warmer conditions.

The Filthy Frog from Googan Squad is a hollow-bodied topwater bait that cleans up in the slop. Its weedless design allows you to drag this bait through the thickest cover, and the bait's narrow-body presents a perfect frog profile. The Filthy Frog is weighted, so you can cast it far and cover plenty of water. The body is designed to keep water out and stay balanced during your retrieve. The rubber legs give this bait a lively action; they're fastened to the bait from the inside to prevent them from falling out, even after the harsh treatment dished out by aggressive bass, pike, or other frog-loving species. When the water temps are warm, look for areas with shallow water vegetation and deploy the Filthy Frog. It will be disgusting.
This Frog can walk the walk! With your rod tip pointed down, apply quick twitches on a slackline. This technique imparts the''walk the dog'' action popular in topwater lures. Every Filthy Frog's hook is wrapped tightly with plastic tubing to help prevent water from seeping into your frog.

Medium-heavy to heavy casting rods with fast action
7.1:1 - 8.1:1 gear ratio casting reel
Pro Tip:Always wait a second before setting the hook on a hollow body frog. A short pause gives the fish time to fully take the bait, while providing you time for a strong hookset. Also, you can trim one of the Filthy Frogs skirted legs shorter than the other to increase the bait’s walking ability!
The Googan Squad Klutch lipless crankbait is designed for a realistic and tight wobble to mimic swimming baitfish and fleeing crawfish. Fish the Googan Squad Klutch all year long but this bait will really crush in the Spring and Fall when bass are putting on the feedbag. In the spring, tie on Sriracha Craw Klutch to mimic the look of crawfish which bass are typically dialed in on. In the fall a Sexy Shad patterned Klutch will be the deal for fish feeding on schools of baitfish.
