    How many of you eat frog legs. I had some recently and I loved it. What methods do you use to catch them. I have a homemade gig, recurve bow, and slingshot that im planning to use. How do these set ups sound? Anty good recipes?

    shoot them, stick them, spear them, or grab them. then roll the legs in your favorite fish batter and fry them. you can also catch them by using your bass set up and tempting them with a small jig or worm.

        Easiest and best way to catch them is fly rod with small fly tied on. I've caught hundreds this way without getting wet or dirty and the romance of being a man. But it works!

          We yousta hunt them in shallow bays, employing an airboat, a spotlight, and a .22 with open sights.

          The challenge wuz to grab 'em before they sink.

          As ye look around the bay with the spotlight, the white retroreflectors wuz frawgz and the red unz wuz gators.

              I usualy shoot 'em with some .22 shorts. minimal damage to the meat and low noise. Have fun!

                When my brothers and I were kids we went out at night in a canoe. All you needed was bright flashlight and a long net. The eyes of the frog glows in the dark like a gator. We caught around fifty large bull frogs with bodies the size of your fist. My Mother cooked the frog legs up in a large black cast iron frying pan with our three burner Coleman stove. They were awesome!

                  A frog grabber by O&H does not hurt the body and the frog body is good fried too. But remember to cut the tendons behind the knee on the frog leg, or it will move during frying. A frog leg moved on my wife years ago while frying so she will not cook or eat them. If and when I have fried frog, I have to clean and cook them myself.

                      I either take my carp bowfishing rig, or a .22 pellet gun. it is very quiet, and does about the same job as a .22 short.

                        I haven't "packed in" anywhere to go hunting since maybe 1987. But I still shoot a deer every year. Though not over a feeder.
