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.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
