How do you keep frogs over the winter?

Recommended Posts

Wiskers

I am looking for ideas on how to keep frogs over the winter. I have about 100 frogs in OX bags in my bait refrigerator. The water is getting Nasty and the frogs are dying? I did change the water every so often but slowly kept putting it off until now it is really bad... They all seemed to be in hybernation but now several of them are dried up and dead.

Has anyone been able to keep them fresh over the winter? I took them out and now have them in zip lock baggies grouped in bunches of 5-6 and in the freezer now.. not sure how they will unthaw for spring or ice fishing?

Tips and suggestions will be welcomed.

Fished the Red River below the dam in Grand Forks today.. no luck.. with that rock dam they put in, the deep hole that held cats and other fish over the winter is now gone.. It is only about 10-12 feet deep now instead of in the 20s.

I would remove them from the bag and place them in the freezer allowing them to freeze individually.

Then chuck them in a zip-lock bag for storage again in the freezer. At ice out the cats will like them if they are allowed to sour a bit.

Personally I find the question distasteful, I mean, why would anyone want to?? But, if you must do so, a stock of boring movies and lots of wine might work.

Kidding.

      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.

      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.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
