I throw my frogs on 50+ lb braid with a gammy 3/0 EWG superline hook, and tie a palomar knot, but when I retrieve, the frog just rolls. So again, what you do to prevent this?

It depends on the type of frog. Some roll easier than others. I don't have many issues with a Rage Toad when I hook it correctly. With others I have to use a weighted hook to keep them upright.

Some frogs are more aerodynamic than others, and will land hook-down most of the time. For the others, I've found the Sebile "soft-weights" work good to accomplish that. I put just enough weight on to make the frog land hook-down.
I would think that something similar would work with your rolling issues too. Otherwise, just use a weighted hook - like they use for swimbaits.
