frogging requires the proper gear for sure, not a place for mono, even if its 30lb....this is braid and braid only territory. This is also not a place for spinning gear.
Start with 40lb minimum. Below that and its a bit thin for the baitcaster, which can cause wind know and backlash issues....the heavier braid is also necessary to stand up to a much needed, powerful hook set.
See, braid's one real weak point is shock strength, and thicker, heavier line will naturally stand up to the shock of repeated hook sets much more reliably. The idea is to get the fish's head up with that set, do this and you can often just glide them over the top for easy landing.
Froggin' always has those days of missed fish, but when you see 0 for 30, its operator error to at least some degree.
Smaller frogs can also enhance the hook up ratio if you are struggling.....the jackall kiera frog and the spro jr are the 2 smaller frogs I find that cast well. But in general, scum frogs dont have the best components and they arent a frog I would lean towards.
