The Dahlberg Diver Frog is a bait unto its own class.
It's designed to exactly replicate the mannerism and features of a frog.
It doesn't just look frog, it does frog: not walking, but swimming and kicking like a real one.
For over 100 years anglers have been making lures they hoped would imitate frogs.
Many look just like a frog.
When they’re sitting still that is.
But when put into motion in a dynamic state, most do nothing but skim over the surface like a water ski.
Others plow clumsily through the water and attempt to appear alive.
They might kind of "look" frog, but they don’t DO frog!
Until now that is. The Dahlberg Diver Frog does frog. In spades.
Give it a pull and it dives, creating a soft bubble chain with its legs kicking behind it just like a real frog.
Stop, its legs retract, and it rises slowly until its eyes poke out above the surface.
You’ll swear it's real.
Repeat, but instead of letting it return to the surface, continue to stroke and stop.
The legs will kick and retract, kick and retract, swimming exactly like a real frog.
The lure will continue to gain a couple inches of depth with each stroke until it reaches a depth of 24–30"!
In the shallows, you can swim it down into the bottom, shake it a little, let it rise an inch, nose it back, kick up some dust to get their attention, then let it slow rise all the way back to the surface.
I will amaze when you see it in action.
Oh yes, its unique "overhead" diving collar with built in weedguard and "hook up" design allows it to skip over vegetation with the best of ’em.
The Dahlberg Diver Frog can slide over junk, pop and rest in a hole, do any combination of popping and swimming along edges or nose in to the bottom like a frog trying to hide in the mud.
At first glance the River2Sea Larry Dahlberg Diver Frog has some unique features that make this bait noticeably different from all the other frog baits on the market.
While it may not look like the most realistic frog you have ever seen when it’s out of the water, once it’s in the water - it’s a whole different story.
Designed to mimic the real thing in action - as you pull it forward in the water, it dives, creating a soft bubble trail with the legs kicking just like a real frog.
Stop it, and the legs retract, while the bait rises slowly, until its eyes poke out just above the surface.
With a continuous stroke and stop retrieve, the lifelike legs will kick and retract, kick and retract, seductively swimming just like a real frog.
Its clear, overhead, diving collar also allows it to plow through or skip over any obstructions in your way, while its solid body made of a coated high-density urethane provides excellent durability.
Equipped with a super sharp River2Sea 2X Strong 6/0 Wide Gap Hook, and available in several realistic colors, the River2Sea Larry Dahlberg Diver Frog is so real - you have to see it in action to believe it.
Designed with legendary angler, TV host and lure designer, Larry Dahlberg.
