Adding weight to floating style frogs?

Recommended Posts

I was watching some random fishing videos on youtube and came across this one about fishing frogs.  The first bit is all basic info but right around 1:30 it brings up a technique of how to add more weight to the frog in order for it to ride lower in the water.  Thus creating more disturbance.  Seems worthy of trying but I've never heard anyone talk about it.  Anybody do this?

That's the first thing i do to my frogs after opening them. I either use soldering wire around the hook shank or split shot weights in the belly. Also, i like to throw in some worm rattles for really thick mats.

They seem to sink worse if I add weight on them.

When I fish matted grass, I remove the legs and put a 1/16 oz worm weight in each leg hole and add a nose rattle for sound. I don't like inserting anything into the frog body that will reduce the compression of the body and limit hookups.

Yeah that is what that video suggested, soldering wire.  Seems like the best bet because it wouldn't interfere with hookups like Wayne pointed out.  I think I'll have to give it a try this summer
