Spro has distinct eyes.

Frogs are designed to walk. Don't have to trim the legs to do that. Just give it little short choppy jerks on slack line.

You're probably right.....I lose track sometimes.

It works nicely.

They do work good. And softer out of the package than a spro

I hold the frog upside down and trim the legs to the nose of the frog. Most of them will walk just fine with short twitches. I use an 8-1 gear ratio Lews Super Duty reel.

Yes that is true but just like tuning a crankbait that doesn't run 100% right out of the package, sometimes a frog needs some help.

Any hard bait I buy first thing I do is take my wood rasp and mark it up. Make it look different , injuryed also on soft plastic take off a craw etc . Been doing that for years .

They will all walk a lot easier if you tie a loop knot and not cinch tie directly to the head.

Don't bother me a bit and I use mono mostly. Faith in the right knot means a lot. The loop knot I use I have taught to many people over the last 2 decades. I have proven to them many times that you will not break the line below the knot.....if the line does break it will most always be 3-6 inches above it.

I don't take credit for coming up with it as Paul Elias showed me how to tie it in 1982 after his Classic victory. coolio

I'm not the most experienced fisherman when it comes to frogs, but the frogs I have tend to hop when I twitch them and not walk side to side.. I think they are Spro frogs. I haven't tried trimming the legs different lengths, will try that. But Hackney was trimming individual legs off of the skirt.. which was a serious fine tune. I've never seen a frog walk back and forth like he was fishing it.

Most work good right out of the box no matter the brand... but those subtle tweeks to the bait can make all the difference in the world, especially on lakes where the fish see a ton of frogs with basically the same action.
