Frog Hack: Add a Stinger Hook

Frog Hack: Add a Stinger Hook

If you've trimmed the back legs on a frog and are still dealing with the issue of short strikes, consider adding a stinger hook like Lake Fork Tackle's "Frog Tail Hook."

Similar to the concept of a trailer hook on a spinnerbait, this frog lure add-on features an upturned hook that has connections that simply slide over the bait's two main hooks. If bass are nipping at a frog and coming up short, this trick allows the bait to remain weedless while greatly increasing the odds for a successful hook-up when a bass smacks the lure.
