Frog Hunting

Postby FireCloud » Tue Jun 15, 2010 11:10 pm

Was out at a vacant rural property today and could have scooped up a bucket full of frogs in no time. They were everywhere (along with one rabbit nibbling on the rose bushes.)

So, it has me in the mood for a frog gigging hunt one night soon. Frog legs can be mighty tasty! Got any frog hunters on MSDeer?

I don't get to go since my buds that do Stay Out All Nite when they go.
They don't gig theirs, they just hand grab em put em in a cooler then skin em alive when they get home, they say they taste better that way, and I can atest to the fact that them boys sure know how to put on a frog feed. Their frogs almost turn out as flakely as fish, none of that rubbery meat when they fry em up. Best I've ever had for sure.

I have never really been on a true frog hunt but would love to try this. I know I tried before as a kid but maube got a couple. I would like to hear more on the hand grabbing???? What do you do just padlle your boat over to them and grab them? How do you do this without them jumping away. Any more tips would br greatly appreciated maybe this wil be another fun sport with the kayak

Ready Red and I always grabbed them. But, we used a motor and were on the very front of the boat. It would be kinda difficult with kayak. Specially at night when frog hunting is done. You are gonna need a strong light to blind the frogs too.

Hard to find good frogs the way we did in the sixties. Lost a high school buddy to cancer a few years back. We frog hunted Lake George, before he passed and did pretty good. I have gigged um, grabbed um. and used 22 shorts for head shots. Be careful grabbing as their might be a Big Cottonmouth with the same intentions.
