Ok I have tried jumping across the lawn.No luck.Too slow.
I also tried an ice ant on a 16ft pole in the long grass.I can hear them in ther but as soon as I step into the grass all goes quiet.
So how do you catch a frog?Do you need the special powers of youth?I have cought frogs when I was younger.Why is it they are so darn hard to get now.Is there an easier location to try to target them?

Try your local golf course around the water hazards and get a butterfly net and some waders!

Ahhhh....grasshopper....your quest for the frog....a worthy adversary.

First you must learn to move with the footfalls of a fox...and the eyes of the owl.....and the ears of a snoopy wife.

Seek not where the frog is but where he will be next. Step heavy like the mighty sumo and the frogs shall flee and in his flight he will be yours.

Go now grasshopper...fill your bucket and rejoice.

How are them SUMO hoppers working for ya boyz?

Have you needed to restock the "Hopper Hosienda" yet?

I have been hammering the cats and eye's on them, stand-up jigs mostly. It's a blast.

Ya know where you caught that nice eye Fishhead, that has been a very hot area this week.

I bet you could find the same type crittr's on the same type areas in your neck of the woods too Eh?

In my youth I caught hundreds of frogs. A real frogger expert taught me this method. While I can't remember catching a frog since I was a teenager, here's the method as best as I remember it:

1) get in front of the frog.

2) "hyptonize" the frog by moving you're hand in a circular fashion gradually getting closer and closer.

3) Quickly snatch him up when you're hand gets within 10-12" of the frog.

4) If this method doesn't work with you're reflexes, teach it to a 14 year old and turn him loose for you.

Ed,
I'm still in the Chub/Sucker mode for Cats but fishhead and Canopy Sam used a bunch of frogs last Tuesday night but I didn't hear yet how they did.

Of the ones we brought back...I let a few go in the garden to make whoopie with the ones that already live there....(Future Stock).

I didn't know but....You can't use a frog over 6"....Looks like I'm a criminal!

WET NETS!

I fished for cats a couple times with them and didn't have much luck.Tuesday I got one cat on a frog and that was it.We were kind of limited since we were fishing from shore.I targeted an area of the MN River where the swamps are very close to the river and the channel cats are still prefering cut bait.I did manage to get two smaller cats on frogs.Maybee we are just a little behind down here.
Since our little lesson in frog stomping I have found some very good areas for catching frogs.There isn't quite as many as your hot spot but plenty to be had.I consider myself a good frogger now!

Thanks for the post card ED.LOL

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
