Here’s what y ® ou
need to know to frog like Ish Monroe!
The River2Sea Phat Mat Daddy frog is a signature design by Ish himself. The Big Bass Specialist and longtime frog thrower extraordinaire. He created his frog specifically around the hooks, for a maximized hookup ratio. He weighted it as one of the heaviest frogs on the market, with a wider body and a flat bottom to force a good indentation into the vegetation and line tracks on the retrieve route – no better way to signal a bass where its next frog meal is ready for the taking.
ISH’S TOP-3 COLORS
• Yellow Head – For dark or overcast conditions, early morning, late evening, dark or stained water • Powder – For a more natural look in bright water, clean water, middle of the day, overhead sun conditions • Bluegill – For matching the hatch in the presence of bluegill
TWO FROG MODS THAT ISH ALWAYS DOES
• Bend the hooks up and away from the body – just a little – to get a better hooking action • Trim 1/2- to 3/4-inch from both the legs to make a more compact profile and allow the fish to get the frog back in the throat as it is gulped down.
