Introduction: Larry Dahlberg knows how to
catch big fish and has created an arsenal of lures to aid him in his lifelong
quest. The Dahlberg Diver Frog is one of Larry’s special creations and is
designed to entice big bass to strike with a special leg kicking action.
Featuring a distinctive diving collar design this frog is quite unlike the
hollow bodied lures most frog fishermen are used to walking.

Dahlberg. Larry met with us at the show and introduced a number of lures from
his secret stash that he had partnered up with R2S to make available to the

Those of you that have
watched Larry's "Hunt for Big Fish" show or met him at regional fishing shows
know that he is not just an accomplished angler but a true scholar of the sport.
Larry doesn't just want to catch fish he tries to figure out what makes them
really tick and has spent countless hours in his workshop tweaking and designing
new lures to target a wide range of species from Largemouth to Peacocks. Some of
these lures include the recently introduced WideGlide, Clacking Crawfish, and

The Larry Dahlberg Diving
Frog, or what we call the LDDF, is a unique looking frog that features long soft
legs, attached to a hard high density urethane body, and is equipped with a
single R2S 2X strong 6/0 wide gap hook that is positioned right in the
rear-center of the frog. This hook is made weedless with a very odd shaped
plastic collar that extends upwards from the front of the frog to right in front
of the hook in the center of the body. The bait certainly looks very different
than the streamlined design found on traditional hollow bodied frogs, and some
might describe it as downright weird.
packaging includes an extra set of legs
The LDDS weighed in close to
1oz. in the lab and when the long soft legs are fully extended the lure measures
6" in length. There are four patterns available which are basically two shades
of green, a brown bodied frog, and a black and yellow combination.
