February is prime for frogs. I actually plan on going this weekend. I have gig'd 3 frogs in my life. When the 3rd one got off the gig and slwowly made it back to the bank, I realized it was not right. Benn catching them with the hand ever since

Yeah I caught a couple in hoop nets after these last couple rains. You can keep those little ones alive if you have a private pond someone will let you use. Drill a 1/4" hole through his/her shell about an inch from the edge. Go get you a really small stainless shackle and attach to a cable attached to a tree. It's fun to throw scraps in the water then watch the cable and bubbles go towards the food. A small (3-5lb) turtle can get to eatin size in just a couple years.
