Frog Hack: Open the Hook Gap Slightly

Frog Hack: Open the Hook Gap Slightly

If anglers have a complaint about the use of hollow-bodied frogs, and there aren't many, it might be that the hook-up ratios for frogs straight out of the package aren't as numerous as many would hope for. This is often because the factory hooks sit so tight to the frog's plastic body, which is necessary to help the frog stay weedless as it tracks through hook-grabbing minefields of lily pads, heavy grass or woody cover.

By taking a pair of pliers and opening the hook gap slightly up and out, an angler can increase their hook-up ratios while still maintaining the bait's amazing weedless nature.
