Set up & bait?

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.

The wind in the willow's playin' "Tea for Two";
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue,
Strangers stoppin' strangers just to shake their hand,
Everybody's playin' in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band.

Gig 'em at night.

Some favorite quotes:

"No other proof, however, is needed than the undeniable fact that at any period of the war from its beginning to near its close the South could have saved slavery by simply laying down its arms and returning to the Union."
--- Major General John B. Gordon, from his book, Causes of the War of Northern Aggression .

“Abe, climb down from Mt. Rushmore, and vacate the penny. Your days in the pantheon are over, thanks to the scholarship and courage of Thomas J. DiLorenzo.” — Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
