re: Time to gig me a cooler full of frogs
We had two boats frogging one night. Most on each boat had never been. Lots of beer drinking was involved of course. Well the boat I was in came up with an idea to play a prank on the other boat. We caught a small 4’ alligator. Wrapped his mouth and headed to the other boat with the lights off. As soon as we pull up they start to shoot the shite. The minute that alligator landed in their boat guys were bailing. I never laughed so hard in my life. Alligator was released unharmed with tape removed FYI

When I was a kid me a bunch of other 14 and 15 year olds got shitfaced on a bayou boat launch adjacent to the Sabine River just north of Vinton. Sometime during the evenings debauchery we happened across an alligator about that size and decided we were going to catch it and subdue it, to what end who the hell knows, maybe make it a pet, make a partner, make it a meal...no telling...but we meant to catch that thing and do something with it. If you have ever tried to subdue an alligator that size you probably know this but we had never done so so we were quite unaware of how much more it meant to that alligator that we didn't capture it than it did to us that we did...that thing took too us like some sort of plague...about 3 seconds in I was convinced there were a heard of the damned things...later discussion revealed that the consensus was no, it was only the one, only it had either grown considerably from the time we decided to catch it until we attempted to do so OR it was some kind of genetically engineered alligator designed by extreme feminists to attract and eliminate 14 and 15 year old boys in large number. None of us were missing when that thing finally decided he had done enough damage and walked off, tossing insults over what passes for an aligator's shoulders, and there were not any missing appendages that anyone would own up to....but there were lots a BAD scratches and places bitten...and the odds are pretty good that the damned alligator caused at least some of those!

re: Time to gig me a cooler full of frogs
Did a lot of froggin when I was younger. I usta mostly grab by hand but had a grab on a long pole for ones I could not reach easy. Back then you couldn't break their skin. Big ones I cleaned them whole cut the legs off for frying and kept arms and back bone for the black iron pot. They were damn good smothered down in onions.

In N Carolina the preferred method was hitting frogs with flat side of paddle and then grabbing them with your hand

I remember those days. You could not use anything to catch a frog that would "...puncture the skin or redden the meat...". Chopped off their heads with a hatchet, and skinned them out. Most all of them had one or two big crawfish in them.

Dude, that brings back memories. My uncle had a camp on Bowhunters Lane between Red and 3 Rivers. That pond between the first big camp on the left and the levee we caught 40 sure enough toad frogs along with 30 or so big Sacs during buck season.

Any of you froggers ever get a head full of pissed off wasps or hornets while frogging at night?


Oh yea, and it's horrible. Was frogging in my buddy's boat and he had a gatortail with no reverse. We hit the bank, grabbed our frogs and apparently hit a hornets nest and all hell broke loose. We had a couple jumping out the boat to stop getting stung. I had to suck it up and grab the push pole to get us off the bank and got lit up by around 50 hornets.
