What is it? Mann’s Goliath Frog, one of the largest hollow-bodied frogs on the market. What does it do? It’s a topwater frog that excels over smaller offerings in a few areas. The fact that it’s bigger means that it’s heavier and casts better than most topwater frogs. This added weight also gives the Goliath Frog more “presence” on top of matted vegetation, making it easier for fish to find and hit accurately. In other words, as you scoot it across a mat it moves more of it so fish can find it easier.

A jackplate bolts between your transom and outboard to offer setback, or distance between the motor and boat.

When you need to fly, raise it up and watch your speedometer climb. These plates are built to last, even under the harshest conditions.
