There’s no more exciting way to catch bass than with a hollow-bodied frog in heavy cover, but the corollary to that rule is that the technique can also be exceptionally frustrating. When fish won’t commit to a frog, or if they repeatedly miss it, it can be heartbreaking. These truths led to the birth of Dabeat, a frog born of necessity. If you’re tired of seeing your favorite mats torn up by the tracks of other anglers’ frogs, or if tough conditions otherwise make the bass noncommittal on tournament day, this is the bait you need to be throwing. The designers at ima Japan created Dabeat to be attractive to all sizes of fish, no matter how skittish, but also to provide an ample target for the biggest bass on your local lake or river. Used in combination with your larger frogs, or when you know larger frogs should work but aren’t producing, Dabeat will become a powerful tool within your topwater arsenal.
