    Taking the boy and one of his friends out tonight for their first frog gigging trip, with the heat and the holiday boat traffic frogging may be the only way to enjoy the lake. Hope the boys get a good mess, I do love froglegs.

    Anyone else going to partake of the frog opener??

    I may go out for a while tonight too. Tyler is bugging me to go. I will probably just use a light instead of a gig though. I haven't seen my gig for awhile. Nothing like a good mess of legs for the Fourth of July.

    bring em by my house there are over 100 frogs easy can barely walk around at night without stepping on at least one are two. Good thing about it though is that i don't have a lot of skeeters are flies are anything like that. We have a few but not many.:big_smile:

    Seems it's a good year for frogs:big_smile: .

    We had our 3 man limit in right at an hour and never left the boat..........we were dry!!!

    Broke the gig with about 6 frogs left so showed the boys how to hand grab, I think they enjoyed that the best.

    Peeling the skin off the legs gave them a ton of trouble, of course I wouldn't part with the catfish skinning pliers so all they had was a pair of needlenosed pliers.

    One frog(a BIG one) had a snakes tail sticking out of it's mouth..........ended up have a 12"+ garter snake in it:eek:oooh: .

    Wish I didn't have to work tonight, I'd be back for a repeat performance............I'll be out of leg's by 6, love them froglegs.

    Love some frog legs. There used to be a local resturant in Circleville, called Kellys. They had a seafood buffet every Friday night with Frog Legs on it. Man I miss that place.

    BAIT.............Bait................are you all crazy or what????????????

    Big Bull Toad is some of the finest eating known to man, why just the thought of 'wasting" a prime bullfrog on an old grizzled up catfish nearly brings me to tears:big_smile: .

    I better get it while the gettings good, creels only 8 here in KS and I eat em faster than that:smile2:

    Might leave a good blood trail if the catfish can get there before the turtles. I've acutally never used a bullfrog, but those big leapord frogs are just about the best bait around.

    Leapord frog's is top notch, I'm just to slow to catch them...........start'n to feel my age. Hot down that way? Figure we'll have a blaze up here before the 4th is over.............we need a rain bad.

    We used a 75 foot seine net one year and put it in a semicircle along the bank of my buddy's pond. We angled it at about 45 degrees and then chased all the leapord frogs into the net. I think we hurt the population of frogs because we ended up catching so many, but man do those frogs work good.
