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

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
    • monstermoose78
      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
