    I have used a small crappie jig on the end of a rod/reel. I just move it back and forth about 2 inches over the frog's head and if I got the color right or have been able to match what is flying around, the frog will usually grab it.....

    Got in the water and hand caught them. For some reason, approaching them from the water rather than the shore made them hold in place rather than jumping away.

    take a red piece of cloth or red tape on a small treble hook and just put it close enough for the frog to see it. the frog will do the rest. they will attack, even chase it sometimes and make a barking sound when they jump.
    it's a real hoot man you'll love it.

    If you want to hook-n-line them the hard part is spotting them to make a presentation.

    I've used small crappie jigs - just get it right in front of it and instinct takes over.

    When I was a kid, I used to hunt 'em at night with my Crossman BB gun.
