Yeah Benny I've watched that video it looks like fun. In fact I sent it to a member on here just the other day. My problem is I hunt by myself mostly. I don't have the benefit of a boat driver and a guy to hold the spotlight while I grab frogs, I wish I did. I am a one-man-band because most of the areas I hunt I can't take a second person. I have some fabulous corded spotlights but they require a bigger battery than I can safely carry in my canoe. Some of the places I have access to only allow me to use something small like a canoe.Oh well, I'll keep looking. I agree about the frog population because places like where that video was shot used to be loaded with frogs. I hunted out in the bypass sloughs years ago. There are still good numbers in the delta and some of the out of the way places I go. But as a whole the frog numbers are way down from years past.
No John we use a spot light and laid the gig down a long time ago. Frogging with Raith Heryford

It seems most people do just cut off the frogs at the waist and keep the just the rear legs. We did that years ago until I had a guy tell me I was wasting half of the frog. So I had him show me how he did it and he was right we were throwing away a good piece of the frog.I found this last night to send to someone who had asked about what was the best way to clean them. I think it's the best because it uses more of the frog and after all why waste the other half.http://www.thehuntin...o-skin-cle.html
It grossed out the wives when we showed them how to skin them. Shallow cut through the skin around the 'belt line', then pulled their little pants off.

Dry Creek? wheres that?
When I was a kid I had a gig on a long light wood pole. We would go along the creek bank with a flashlight and gig them at night. Then hold them by the hind legs and smack their head on a piece of concrete and cut off the legs and skin the legs. Then put them into a bowl of salt water overnite in the refrig. My mom would fry them up in the morning and they were good. It helpped that we lived on Dry Creek at the time. Made it easy to do often.
