For years, anglers have been making lures they hoped would imitate frogs. Many look like a frog when they're sitting still, but put them in motion and they do nothing but water ski over the surface or plow clumsily through vegetation. That is until now ...
The River2Sea Dahlberg Diver Frog - now available in a smaller 50-size - looks and swims so realistically, it's a sight to behold. Give it a pull and it dives, creating a soft bubble chain with its legs kicking behind it. Stop it, and its legs retract as it slowly rises until its eyes poke out just above the surface - just like a real frog. Also, instead of letting it return to the surface, you can continue to stroke and stop it. The legs will kick and retract, kick and retract, swimming exactly like a real frog, and it will continue to gain a couple of inches of depth with each stroke until it reaches a depth of 24 - 30-inches.
Its unique "overhead" diving color with built in weedguard and "hook up" design also allows it to skip over vegetation with the best of them. Available in several realistic colors, the River2Sea Dahlberg Diver Frog 50 can do all the things a traditional hollow-bodied frog can do - slide over mats, pop and rest in a hole, or any combination of popping and swimming, and it can also nose down to bottom in the shallows, like a frog trying to hide in the mud. Each River2Sea Dahlberg Diver Frog 50 also comes equipped with a 2X Strong 4/0 Wide Gap Hook.

Comments: I love this frog! It is a lure you will see on one of my rods 75% of the time. You can use it like a popper, crankbait, or just a regular frog! Some downsides are it sometimes lands upside down but in a couple twitches it is back upright and ready to get hammered. I like to cast this thing right up by shore by flooded trees and let it sit there in the trees rocking around-chances are a bass is looking right at the tree. And then let the frog come out of the tree and when it lands in the water, immediately give it one or two pops.- the bass can't resist. And in the summer work it around weed edges or pockets. You can still catch fish with the original frog but I would add a trailer hook to increase your hookup rate tremendously. Also, when diving down, using your rod the bait will go on its side, use the reel instead. I fish from shore and from a kayak and this bait gets the job done either way. I would definitely recommend this frog to anyone willing to pay the money.

Comments: This is the most realistic frog ever made. Can't wait till this snow melts so I can finally use it.

Comments: Very disappointed with the quality of this frog. the plastic on the front that gives the frog is diving action was not put on properly and mine flipped over onto its back on the first cast, then with out even using it, the legs got destroyed from just sitting in my tackle box. I would recommend sticking with the traditional frog lures. I do have to say that I purchased the dalhberg clackin craw which was very well built, very durable and has worked very well for me. maybe mine was a fluke, but I most likely wont be purchasing another one.

Comments: This bait will catch you some nice fish and its awesome to see a bass shoot out of cover to destroy this frog, but like the other review don't dare store it in your tackle box or anywhere hot it will destroy the legs.
Comments: the action of this bait is incredible, reacts just like a real from. I find that the 60news is a little big so I just ordered a few in the 50. can't wait to see how these do in the spring
Comments: this bait will not do well if you leave it in your tacklebox for too long. The legs tend to tear and rip after about a month of light use. Be careful, the action is pretty good and I got one 3lber. But I will not be buying another.
