I am looking for a supply of live healthy and flash frozen leopard frogs to be used for bait.

If you have a son or daughter or a heard of kids willing to make a few buck drop me a line.

I will also take frozen frogs but I have a particular method in which I wish them frozen, email me for details.

Eddy,
The other day I was looking at some lake property on lake fifteen, and in one of the shallow weedy bays their must have been 50 or so frogs on the 50 ft of shore i walked. the water is shin deep with weeds at the top. the bottom is sandy, and it looked like you could walk the shore for at least a couple hundred yards. might be something to check out. with a butterfly net and a flow trol I would think you could fill up quickly. Plus you wouldnt have to wade in all that muck ponds have.

Hope this helps,

Tiny popcorn frogs work, but I really want last years hatch. Larger last years hatch I would go 3 for a Buck. Last year a couple of kids manged a couple hundred bucks off om me easy!

If I can get plenty of them new hatch frogs resonable, like $2.50 a dozen for this years hatch I may take them? I will need new hatch mostly in September. I may be able to find them by then?

To freeze them stick a dozen or so in a large ziplock bag at a time full of air and set them in the freezer. They will curl up individually and not freeze in a mass. Then dump the frogs in a bag with only individually frozen frogs for transport.

By doing this they do not get all soft and mushy, they hold up much better. In my experence for cats the frozen work just as well as long as they are not caught too late in the season.

For fall walleye they need to be fresh, healthy, and lively to work the best.

Once the fields get harvested we may be able to find the old hatch frogs, and then again, maybe not? I need to be sure I have it covered, I am kinda fussy about bait.

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?

      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?

      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile

      The holidays are coming to the Governor’s Residence! Foresters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota harvested the official state Christmas tree Nov. 16 from the Nemadji State Forest. The tree, which is approximately 60 years old, will decorate the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul. “This year’s tree is absolutely gorgeous—tall, full, and almost perfectly shaped,” said Jean Mouelle, the DNR forester who selected this year’s tree. “It’s an impressive example of a balsam fir.” Each year, DNR staff chooses the Governor’s Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 state forests. Although the tree is always harvested on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the search for the perfect tree begins months beforehand. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. The tree also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped, and where foresters can easily remove it from the forest and load it onto a trailer. The tree will be set up at the Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, and lit Monday, Nov. 26. Information about viewing the tree can be found at www.mn.gov/admin/governors-residence/tours/schedule. Half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota each holiday season, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees provide an environmentally friendly decorating option during the holidays because they store carbon during their lifespan and can be chipped for mulch when the season is over.

      Should get the hangers today and will post info. I see that mountain Mikes has them also. Built to fit in the hole in back. The ones I ordered are for the bone skull so hopefully, dont have to send them back. Just got Marks done.  16 inch inside. Mine is 15 1/4. Not monsters but pretty neat. Marks biggest so far.

      I typically mount with a wire hidden behind the brain cavity routed through holes in the plaque to a screw behind the plaque.   Curious about this angled hanger, it tilts the nose of the skull away from the wall? Do you have a link? I like that idea, might have to rig something up when my euro is ready.

      Was around both lakes yesterday and they appear to be locked up. Shouldn't be long now.
    • eyeguy 54
      I hate when I am walking back to vehicle and they have roosted partway and I didnt know it, then they explode and I freak. LOL

      Bow hunting the other day I had a flock of about 20 come in at last light to roost in a nearby tree. No way a deer was going to come in with all that racket! It was kind of odd to see them hop from tree to tree but at the same time cool to see! Graceful and quiet they were not!
