me too magicman. frog legs are great. the one frog in the pic is small compared to the one that was about 10 feet from where i was sitting on the bank. i almost went and caught him but i wasnt going to be fishing for a couple days. i dont like to waste anything, i use the upper-half of the frog for catfish bait and eat the legs :) i am going back one evening this week and i might take my waders so i can get a mess of frogs and then catch some more catfish. i have been releasing the catfish in our lake on the farm to populate it we dont have any channel cats in it, just a lot of crappie,bass,bluegill,sunfish,bullhead catfish,and chain pickerel. when i am done with putting them in the lake i am going to cook some catfish, i had one on the like that weighed prob 15-20 lbs but he bent the hook straight.

Me too  ;D.  That catfish that Fishpharmer fired up at the Pig roast a couple of years ago was mighty fine.  The hushpuppies were just as fine  ;D.

Hand grabbing frogs from the front of a boat is the way to get them.  Especially if you have a good motor operator in the rear.   ;D
