Did any of you guys see Hackney trimming the "legs" of a frog so that it would walk the dog? He would cut single strands from each leg until the frog would walk back and forth.. I've never seen anybody do that before.

Old trick cutting one leg shorter but I have not seen single strands cut. I'd assume anything that creates less drag on one side would make it walk. Wonder what the advantage is as to just having a peg leg. Obviously the profile remains more similar I guess that could matter. Pretty cool idea.

This frog walks really really well, you can basically flip it back and forth in the same spot darn near forever on slack 65 lb braid.... I just tried it for the first time the other day I havent got bit yet to see how the hook up is the body is a little more firm than I prefer but it may still be just fine.

Cutting the legs works well, make sure you leave one at least 3/8 longer than the other and use a high speed reel and not a Revo winch. There is a big difference in 5.4 to 6.3 ratio yawn . peep

Interesting - may have to give that a try on one of my frogs.


In memory of my childhood friend Dan Sterling, who taught me at an early age how to catch bream with a hand-line, and who unknowingly hooked me on fishing for life.

Was this a hollow body or plastic floater?


Prepare for the future-it will be here tomorrow.

Works on any hollow body but some work better than others. Spro spittin shad walks great right out of the box. I've heard strike king has a couple new ones being introduced this year also...
