The menu does not end with true frogs. Other tidbits include the many diminutive species of chorus frogs, cricket frogs, and tree frogs. Most are small, between 1 and 2 inches, but legitimate forage for 1- to 3-pound bass. On large water or small, aquatic vegetation and flooded brush within reasonable kicking reach of land can harbor frogs and tadpoles. (In case you flunked Zoology 101 while skipping class to go chunk in the nearest pond, the tadpole is the gilled juvenile or larval stage of the air-breathing frog.) During warm weather, cold-blooded amphibians are most active amid the long shadows of early and late day. The dog days of summer often see midnight rambling, as evidenced by moonlit choruses from sloughs and coves. These are the same periods when mature bass are most likely to forage shallow. See how it fits together?
