    When I was a kid dad and I went all the time. We had some ponds we shot. Some gig only. The good ones were gig pond for some reason.

    shot some back in the past, but seemed to lose a few, and a lot of people don't like shooting, so we always gig. I use a 4 cell C battery mag lite.

    go to walmart and buy a twenty dollar Energizer headlamp, don't be suckered into buying one less expensive, the quality lacks as do the beams,
    If I remember correctly 220 or 250 lumens.

    Fry. pat dry, dust in flour. Dip in buttermilk, season, then dredge in flour. Fry slow, just a gentle sizzle. The buttermilk helps them brown. If you fry fast, they get hard.... Make gravy from the drippings, serve with biscuits, potatoes of some kind, and scrambled eggs always good....

    My favorite way to get em is by a boat and just hand grabbing them. That way you can release the little ones if you get one. Shoot em gig em or grab em just as long as you can get enough to the skillet. Love them frog legs.

    I’ve got a few ponds in Logan county. Like to find a few closer to home in Glasgow. I’m not gigging this weekend though. I’m gonna wait till it gets hot to gig the ones in Logan county. I love it. Just don’t get to do it much cause it’s not like it used to be when I was a teenager.

    I have an old Cummings aluminum gig I bought forever ago. Just buy replacement heads for it when they wear out.

    22 Short HP do the trick, Or CB caps if in a neighborhood pond late at night. I had a old beat up 22 single shot with a cheap scope on it that was death on frogs. If it got wet no big deal let it rust. Could shoot in daylight or at night with a light focus on the frog with the scope. Have not been in years tho for some reason.

    The still trap kind, haven't seen them in years. They are 99 percent catch in the hands of a frogger. I have rebuilt mine for my son 4-5 times. Especially great on the floaters. Text him 2 days ago and said you seen my gig he said yeah its in the back of my truck...........in Indianapolis:)
    Heard a pond the other night full of them 15 sec long coonhound croakers no dinks. Used OnX maps to locate owner and snagged permission:D
