Thanks for the help, I am just messing around so don't plan on buying a bunch of extra stuff. When I built it I had considered adding about an inch long twisted wire to the hook eye to get the hook farther towards the rear. So I probably should have done that! Also I was hoping like you said that the weight of the lure would get it to mash down the weeds, which might lead to more strikes? And I may add another screw eye to the rear, which I could attach a rubber band to the hook to help with snags! Again thanks everyone. Rob

Thanks! I was at the sporting good store and saw a live target frog and decided to try and make one. It turned out really nice and walks great!

here is another idea that might be able to be incorporated into your frog. http://www.basspro.c...11111505010510/
i am working on a hard bodied mouse and think i might try one of these if the bottom hook does not work out. (But its on hold right now because the bass are on beds at Santa Margarita) so i have been at the lake alot.
