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.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!
    • monstermoose78
      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
