This frog comes with a super-strong double frog hook built into the hollow body of the bait. Over the years, I have always bent my hook points up just a little on older frogs to create a better hookup ratio. But it seems there’s a trend now in some of the newer frogs I’ve been testing out that they come this way from the factory.
The same is the case for the Hop Walker Frog. The hook points are already turned up at a good angle to create the best hookup ratio possible. Turning the hooks up a little like this helps them rise above the plastic of the frog as it’s compressed to penetrate the fish. I don’t recall losing a single fish so far on this bait, though I did miss a few that never really got the bait but just blew up on it off a bed.
