a heavy action rod and thick braid helps a bunch in getting hookups. many people wait too long to set the hook. bass have no problem engulfing a frog off the surface, in open water, i set the hook immediately....in slop, i might wait a couple seconds....long enough to reel up any slack. i also bend the hooks back a bit on my spro frog....and if they are biting the 'legs' of the bait then i'll trim the legs shorter.

One tip on tying your frogs with braid, especially if you use any braid that is coated, use a double palomar knot. A single palomar knot will fail and come loose over time.
