I throw the koppers and spro popping frogs, I do trim skirts and I sometimes turn hooks up, really depends on the frog and how it fishes out of the package.

It's not the best in all situations but the Death Dealer Bart definitely has a great hook up ratio. A very unique design too.

I don't miss many fish on the Jackall Iobee. Really easy to walk.

I am looking forward to trying the Snag Proof attitude frogs.

I utilize the spro popping frogs and never miss. I do turn the connects a bit, a minor change and trim the legs to the length of the body. Around 30 seconds of mod to have the best frog on the planet!

patience is the key no matter what frog you end up using.....just learn to wait until you feel the fish on your line when you see it blow up on the frog before you set the hook.....that extra second helps you set the hook once the fish has it in its mouth....

I have no complaints with spro. I just wait to feel the fish then set the hook hard. The only modification I do is give the legs a little trim.

I've had the best hook rates with the RI swamp donkey, and I also think
its a pretty great walking frog.

Booyah pad crusher / live target frog and mouse/ deps slither k

But of course the rod / line / hookset timing are crucial factors to transform strikes into catches.

Patience, patience, patience. If I miss a hook set, I leave the frog st for maybe 30 seconds to a minute. Just a little twitch and more often than not, the bass comes back for seconds.

I have good luck with the spro 65. However sometimes I still lose some on the way in to the boat. I bend my hooks up but I think I am just to jumpy on the hookset and just get them skin hooked?
