Default Anyone go frog gigging?

I know it's a little off subject from flounder but it isn't to much diffrent. I have never tried gigging frogs around here and was wondering if anyone had any sugestions. Is there anywhere you could walk/wade for them or is it better to look by boat. I enjoy some good ole frog legs every now and then when you can find them but I figured I would go get them myself. Thanks for any sugestions.

Not a good area for that. The Alapaha in South Georgia had more frogs then you could imagine. Choctawhatchee River in Caryville has some frogs.

I know that in Cullman, Alabama and most places that are a little farther away from the salt water tend to produce more frogs in there swampy areas. Thanks for the Reply.

Escambia river is loaded with big ole croaking bulls during the summer. I usually just ease up and down the river watching one side at a time with a spotlight, just look for the little white bellies. Also make sure to not to cast a shadow on them once they are in the light. Other than that just be ready to get in some snake and spider infested spot when you go in for the gig!

Sounds good I live in Baldwin County off Fish River so I think I may try going up in the marshy slews way up river and scout for some in a month or so. Turn the ole flounder boat into a frogging boat.

Anyone Know if there are any Limits or guild lines for catching them? Didn't know if you had to Gig or Net them or if you could pop them with a Pellet Air Rifle?

No regs beside guns can only used during daylight. We use gigs, and our hands when they're sitting close enough to the water.
