Frog Hack: Trim the Legs

Frog Hack: Trim the Legs
Frog Hack: Trim the Legs

Straight from the manufacturer, frogs have long legs, or twin sets of rubber skirt material that sweep the water behind the frog as it is retrieved. Trouble is, these legs are often too long and can cause the annoyance of short strikes from fish.

One way to alleviate this problem is to simply trim the legs up with a pair of scissors. (Note: some anglers will trim one side a little shorter than the other to help a frog walk a little better on the retrieve.) This can be overdone, so the key is to trim just a little at a time until you get the look and action that you desire.
