well me and my son went frogging last night with the new gig built from 16 painters pole and a new 6 prong gig.pulled to the end of drive way gig first frog a large specimen with huge legs.We went 6 for 6 on the first 6.My son having always been the light guy was eager as i asked him if he wanted to switch and become gig guy.He went 0 for 6 and we laughed our buts off at his tecnique.with some coaching he got the hang of it and went 2 for 5 on his next 5 trys.He said he wanted me to gig the rest.we wound up with 25 nice sized frogs and was back in by 11:00.Two hours of gigging counting riding time between good spots , some good company , and some mighty fine eating to boot after a good day fishing.Damn i might be a ******* and my son is well on his way.There are worse things you could be i guess.





HARD TO GET A GOOD PIC AS IT WAS RAINING ITS A$$ OFF THIS MORNING AND THE FROGS WERE STILL SEEKING THEIR FREEDOM.

I was thinking to early to we were pulling out the driveway friday morning with the boat in tow.My phone rang so i stopped at the end of the driveway to answer it and I looked out the window and there was the mac daddy of all bull frogs.So we started looking on our way to the river and we saw em everywhere.So I asked my best friend who is also my son if he wanted to go so we decided to give it a go.the early bird gets the frog to I guess.[excited][excited][excited]

Reading the board from Richmond. They are now just starting to croak good. I see lots of them even have a gig I bought for 5 bucks a yard sale. I can figure out how to gig them, BUT

How the heck do I clean one, and skin it. Only after the legs so I figure a cleaver or machete, but what do I do from there if I have any fingers left. HA..... Also white light or red or blue? and best times at night?

Thanks, and yes sounds like a great time.

Here's my way.... Leave frog on gig, grab frogs legs, cut legs from frogs at the waist. Step on frogs head and gerk gig out of frog. When I get home, wash legs and then use fish skinning pliers to pull skin from legs. Seperate legs. Regular pliers will not work very well.

Regular spotlight if you are in a truck and a good flashlight if you are walking. I go about one hour or so after sundown.
