That sounds like a good way to get the job done, Sarge.

Update.  I couldn't wait any longer so I went out to the garage with the essential 3.5 frog mold.  I covered the leg area of both cavities with foil and shot the baits.  When I demolded just the legs were nicely split.  Cut off the bottom sections and they looked really nice.  A nice little alternative that gives you a thin legged or a thick legged frog without any mold modifications,

Brilliant!!!!

Good thinking olsarge. It was a good walleye bait for me last fall.

  Just wondering if you left both pair of legs on the frog how that would work. With four legs that might give you all kinds of action. You got me wanting to try this now.

My first thought also Lamar. Could be interesting. Double action legs.

I have thought of that too and plan on trying it out this spring.  Out of the mold, the legs stick together but I am thinking that the water may "lubricate" them enough to help keep them apart.  Will see this spring

Great idea. Now I'm wanting to try that too. I've got 4 more 3.5" coming. I think I'll leave at least one unmodified for experimenting with this idea.

I just shot some more with the skinny legs but I added some foam flotation to them as well.  The idea being to work them towards an opening in the pads/grass then just twitch them to get them skinny little legs to shakin.  I'm thinking irrisistable (or at least I hope)
