Took my boys fishing yesterday. We caught several smallys and a few laughs. My boys saw two bull frogs. I told them I've had frog legs in florida that tasted amazing! Now they want to harvest them. I read the co fishing catalog and it sounds like they are a pest! any ideas on where I could take a five and three year old frog gigging?

When I was kid growing up back east we used to go and catch frogs at this pond close to home by hand until an old timer told me to use a fishing pole with a hook and cut out a little piece of red fabric (roughly 1/2") and put it on the hook and dangle it in front of them. They would go for it instantly. Worked like a charm. Frog legs sauteed in butter, salt and pepper.....tasty!

I used to catch Em on a split shot and a wooly bugger with my little spin outfit. They'd grab it immediately and wouldn't let go. Sometimes they'd grab the split shot.

Not sure where you can go but we used to just dangle a dry fly in front of them and they would eat, and yes we harvested many for the legs and they are tasty for sure! Better than chicken legs IMO!

I would try any of the ponds in the Ft. Collins area ... Farther south you could try the St. Vrain park ponds.

Good luck.
