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.

      @Rick G   have you changed your approach or how you are fishing with no snow cover this year? It seems to really have changed things. Fish are spooky to  any movement above the ice.  Even just jigging a rod with your hand etc. spooks fish. Weed lines are not dying off etc., fish are staying up shallower etc.   I have had a lot more luck just dead sticking and bobber fishing and being away from holes or intentionally drilling holes in slush pockets or drifts to eliminate shadows etc.

      Awesome cause Rick!!👍👍👌

      Fishing has been pretty good for the most part with the exception of a slow day mixed in here and there. Been on a few different lakes in the last week. Ice conditions continue to fluctuate depending on warm and cold spells.  Right now there is 7-8 inches on the lakes I have been on. Snow cover is just about gone again, and with the warm days coming I think our ice season might be coming to an end locally.  Today I fished with a good buddy and we were on a mission... To find enough fresh fish to feed the folks at a local veterans home Friday dinner.  Mission accomplished!!!   Found a good mix of perfect eater size fish😁.

      Thanks for clearing up your statement.  So what is the daily limit down there?  
    • SkunkedAgain
      How thick is the snow on the lake? Is there any left?

      His guide business harvests less than 1,000 teal a year. The state of Louisiana harvests over 150,000 teal a year and over 2 million ducks total. If that makes sense.

      Maybe I'm confused, but I hope one guide is not killing anywhere near the birds as an entire state of hunters?

      On the south end...   Ice fishing continues strong and it is still winter on the border.    Overnight temps in the teens and twenties are maintaining ice nicely.  Fishing continues to be excellent.  It has been an incredible year for walleyes and saugers with both numbers and size.     Resort fish houses and sleeper fish houses are available.  Some ice roads are allowing pickup trucks pulling wheelhouses as well.  Check with each individual ice road for specific limits.   As always, and certainly this year, it is important to stay on the resort ice roads.  It is tempting to go off on your own as there isn't much snow, but that is a risky move any time of the year.  Resorts and outfitters keep their roads on the best ice and monitor it numerous times per day.   Lake of the Woods enjoys an extended ice fishing season each year.  Fish houses are allowed on the ice through March 31st, the walleye / sauger season goes through April 14th and the pike season never ends.   The majority of ice fishing for walleyes and saugers is taking place in 24 - 34 feet of water.  Jigging one line and using a live minnow on the second line is the way to go.   Pike anglers fishing shallower shoreline breaks and reporting good activity and big fish.  Pike activity will only increase as we approach the month of March.  Arming your spread with a mixture of live and dead baits will allow you to quickly figure out what the pike wants that day. Alewife, smelt, herring, numerous sizes of live suckers, or even large shiners work well. On the Rainy River...  Most ice fishing is taking place on the lake.  There are a couple of resorts that ice fish on the Rainy River.  Know ice conditions or work through a resort or outfitter for safety.    The river is open east of Birchdale.  Those who enjoy the spring open water season on the river are optimistic the river will open early.  Is your boat and fishing gear ready when it does? Up at the NW Angle...   Another very good week of ice fishing up at the Angle.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout, pike and some big crappies in the mix.   Water conditions are clearer this winter compared to most.  For that reason, the morning and evening bites have been stronger than midday overall. Jigging one line and deadsticking the second line is the way to go.  Electronics help in determining what the fish want that given day and will up your catch of fish.   Ice fishing has been excellent, come on up.  It's still winter on the border!

      There's only one Waterfowl guide in the country that I went to. He runs about 20 trips a year. So he harvests about 185,000 less teal a year than some of the individual southern states. In MN, lots of the teal are gone before the early teal season

      Wow, don't want to be one of those guys.  But, you don't think such liberal limits down there, hurts the northern population next spring?
