Sealing the frog seals the air in, and makes it impossible to hook the fish. I personally use Spro Bronzeye frogs 90% of the time, and all I do to prepare them is fold the legs over the head and cut them off at the front of the line tie. This allows enough of the legs to remain to make the frog a viable option for chugging, and giving a realistic profile, while at the same time making walking the frog much easier. I will also "break in" the body with my thumb by pressing down on the plastic area between the hooks and compressing the body a few times. There is no need to bend the hooks, the frog is very well designed. As for hook sets, use braid, wait a second, and whack them hard. I have set the hook at virtually all angles on frog fish, and as long as you give them a second and then hit them hard, you will hook up.
I`ve got a couple of Transporter Frogs that sink like a rock.
