OK, my budget department got together with accusations and decided this new top water deal is not gonna happen. So accusations got together with R and D and I cam up with some similar stuff that just kept fizzling out. Caught a few on this one tonight, tomm. I will give it the AM test. Trailer hook in a cocohoe tuxedo minnow, weedless.

You know, I put a big willow gold booyah blade on the back and had numerous blow ups but all on the back so no hook sets. Also had a few different craws on a screw set and had a lot suck it in but nothing attack the frog, so again no hook set. So that's how we have made it here. Caught a few dinks in the last hour of light on this set up all on the trailer. Give it a go tomm. Cost 0 bucks, wire from a jacked up spinner bait and double swivel from same spinner bait as well as the the other stuff.

I'm gonna say this one time and one time only. Get your hands on some of those Helicopter lures that everyone loves hate and put one on the back. wink

Might give you all some ideas

If I were to do it again; would use a larger split ring, so I wouldn't need the snap for the tail to ride higher
Would use a large centering pin also

Yea. Form it like a whopper plopper, maybe a little smaller. Add a hook holder to attach it to a swivel.

I'm finding that the more powerful the prop, the more the frog is likely to spin onto it's back.

There's a fine balance of the centripetal force, how soft the frog is, and keel weighting the frog.

Getting closer
