In order for a topwater bait to be effective, the bait must have the ability to disturb the water surface with attributes that create sound, action and vibration. The all-new ToadRunner™ from BOOYAH® Bait Co. not only has those qualities, the ToadRunner gives anglers the ability to adjust the sound and action based upon fishing conditions.
The new ToadRunner is built around a modified BOOYAH Pad Crasher body. Grooves were added under the body and the legs were shortened so the bait will not spin in the water. These modifications also give the bait a life-like appearance when it stops and floats. The key to the bait however lies in the patent pending Wire Form Tail, which will allow anglers to easily tune the bait so that it will make different sounds from subtle to super loud.
The Wire Form Tail consists of a pliable wire that is molded inside a translucent tail. The tail is connected to the body of the ToadRunner by a ball bearing swivel and a split ring, which allows the tail to rotate 360 degrees and produces a plopping sound. When the bait is placed in the water the translucent tail takes on the color of the water so fish will not hone in on it and hook sets will not be impacted. The pliable wire inside the tail can be bent to change the motion and the sound of the bait as needed.
The ToadRunner is designed to be fished around heavy cover and grass mats without getting hung up but it will fish just as well in open water or around sparse vegetation. The ToadRunner is a tournament-tested bait first used by professional angler Jason Christie, who fished the ToadRunner to a top-ten finish at the 2017 Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest on Lake Sam Rayburn.
“Being able to adjust the tail to trigger strikes under different conditions is a game changer,” said Christie. “By being able to actually adjust the sound of the bait and make fish react is the reason I had a good finish on Sam Rayburn. With the translucent tail the fish will key on the body of the bait reducing short strikes, the grooves in the body and shortened legs will eliminate the chance of the frog rolling in the water.”

*Pro Tip From Jason Christie*
If you miss a fish when Fishing the ToadRunner don’t change baits, just adjust the tail to make a different sound and cast back to him. More often than not the fish will strike again.
