...a lot of frogs at the lake. Love them frog legs, anybody else?
I don't gig them...plenty around, why go to the trouble?
My Rem 514 "frog gun" is under going a nice beautiful custom stock
change, cause I screwed it up [:D], long story. I have shot hundreds of 'em thru the years, and caught a bunch on topwater baits.
...Usually when I catch 'em, throw 'em back...cause I don't want to clean just one, then end up catching several more [:0], duh.


The snakes have been cleared out for years...99 9/10ths of the the snakes that is...their biggest predator...after a great "eradication" campaign [:D]...but that is a whole different story...lots of shooting for several years...[;)]

    My mother taught me to catch them with a long pole, and a small piece of red yarn on a small hook.
    We caught them on the Severn river in Canada, when my folks had a place up there next to grandmas place, years, and years ago.
    We would also bust em with a canoe paddle if we could get close enough.
    Biggest darn frogs I ever saw, with hind legs like a chicken.
    Very, very tastey critters fried up golden brown in a cast iron frying pan.
    I still manage to hunt them, down around here, and they even have a season on em, if you can believe that.
    I have a lot of the HUGE South Carolina Bull Frogs imported to my big pond in the woods, that will be eating size next year, and when they croak the ground moves.
    My old octagon barreled Marlin 39 22 rim fire has put more than one in a sack [;)]

    We went out last spring and grabbed (with bare hands) about 65 in a couple of hours. Talk about a blast, the gators were out to.

    As a kid we used to go frogging, no gig, just hands cause gigs are illegal in Kansas. Or at least they were then, don't know if they still are. Loads of fun! Good eating too!

    Loved to watch the legs twitch while soaking in salt water.

    Used to have'em out the kazoo around here when I was a kid.Loved goin' after'em all night up and down the creek and hittin' all the neighbor's stock tanks along the way.

    Haven't been enough around here to even mess with in many years.[:(]

    Fireants? Chemicals?(It is a farming community)

    I don't know,but I sure do miss'em.[V]

    The place we wen't to is a drainage canal out in an area with a whole lot of cotton. I would say that the chemicals used haven't hurt the population out there.

    Went when I was a kid in West Virginia. We gigged a gunny sack full.My cuz cleaned them all that night and salted them to show me how the legs jump around when off the body. His wife fried them for breakfast that morning. She didnt know they had been salted so she did it again. What a salty un-edible mess
