Yeah I have to let them eat a hollow body for an excruciating long time to get a good hookset. It ticks me off missing some big ones but I still do it because it works so well.

The advantage of hollow body frogs is that the hooks are protected by the frog's body and they will skip on top of the lilly pads without ever getting tangled. The disadvantage is that the hooks are protected by the frog's body and they rarely hook a fish.

If anybody has a solution, I'd like to know it. I've caught a few big bass on these lures but I miss most of them.


I have the same problem. You're supposed to delay setting the hook, but danged if I can do it!

LG mouth Bass "inhale" the bait at first, then swallow it. Wait for the 2nd "tap". :-)
