Snag Proof The Original Frog
Problem legs? (solution)
After reading a few reviews on this bait I see the same complaint over, and over. There is a very easy and effective solution to this problem.
Step 1: Fill your sink enough to cover a shot glass.
Make sure the shot glass is full of water and turn it upside down in your sink.
Step 2: Drain the sink of all water leaving the overturned shot glass full of water.
Step 3: Wrap the frogs legs over the wide portion of the shot glass and fill sink with boiling water (enough to submerge the frog/glass)
Once the water has cooled down drain the sink and run cold water over the bait. You have now changed the memory of the plastic. Depending on what portion of the shot glass you use (wide or thin) you will get a different space between the legs. I recommend using the wide portion of the glass
P.S. I will include some before and after pictures.

Snag Proof Large Frog
Great Frog for casting and catching Large
bass. Works well with Logs and weeds. When I cast I yank once and let it set for
a moment. If I don't get a strike, I try again and
I get a hit.

Second Chance Bass
I used this lure back in the early 1980's when the selection was very limited. It is very weedless but will not cast a great distance and at times will land upside down. It works excellent on lilly pads, I caught my biggest largemouth to date, excluding Mexico lakes using this frog. I missed an 8 lb. largemouth on the first strike as I set the hook to soon but to my amazement he hit again and this time I didn't set the hook till I could feel the fish. I rated this frog a 5 for its time but there are in my opinion several different brands of frogs that will out produce this one due to the increased selection and types for different conditions. But for landing on lilly pads it will still work wonders.

This frog catches fish, but I also miss some fish. I think it is because of its hard rubber legs. I like other frogs like the Bronzeye Jr. better.
