Frog Trailer Hooks

Recommended Posts

I recently came across one of the Snagproof bleeding frogs with attitude in my local clearance bin. I bought one because I was intrigued with the idea of having a Trailer hook on the back of the frog. My hook up ratio is considerably bad so I wanted to try it. I fished it though slop and it was surprisingly weedless. My hookup ratio went up greatly. I'm wondering how many others put trailer hooks on their frogs?

No way I could throw that where I fish a frog.

What is a "considerably bad" hookup ratio? What rod/reel/line are you using? It's possible that's where the issue is. Since I've got the right setup for it, I'm at about 75-80 percent hookups on hollow body frogs, it makes a huge difference.

Like others have said, there is no way I could thrown a frog with a trailer in the lily pads I fish, However, if you just throwing it on a clear bank, not a bad idea.

That's the lake fork tackle hook I believe. I have been meaning to pick some up since I've been throwing my frog in stuff that's not that bad. I don't know how they fish frogs on such long rods. I prefer a 6 9 to keep the tip out of the water when walking it.
