Frog Question

Recommended Posts

      I finally got a good set up for frogging, and have been enjoying the top water action. The problem is, i keep having the same issues with my frogs. After a few fish, the frog is no longer water-proof and will start to sink toward the end of a cast, requiring me to squeeze the water out. Very annoying. It seems like the opening in the bottom of  the frog where the hooks come out is leaking. I have had this same problem with the original Scum Frog, the SK KVD frog and the Booyah Pad Crasher. Has anyone else had this problem? Any soloutions?

Hollow body frogs are not supposed to be sealed, otherwise it would not collapse when a fish bites it. There was a thread on this recently, you should read it (especially JFrancho's post on page 1.)

Basically it comes with the territory. Just squeeze the water out. Making sure that the hook is aligned properly and that the body is straight will minimize this. I usually fish Spro and Koppers Live Target frogs when I fish a hollow body, and have never had any real issues with them filling with water unless they were mangled somehow.

X2 Snakehead.

 

Frogs have to be able to pop back up to their shape after the monster bass you'll be catching chomps down on it.....you'll find it to be worth it no problem.

 

I just kind of get in the habit of about every 5th cast leave enough line out to swing the frog back to me, squeeze 3 times, and done. All said about 5 seconds......well worth it to me since I, like you, have found a lot of good frog action lately. Can't beat a bass busting a frog, best fishin' there is!

All of the above info is spot on and maybe the frog you are using may have a small puncture that's causing your frog to take in water. Most hollow body frogs, should not have water going into them unless you caught or missed a fish.
