Frogs? What frogs?
Frog gigging is a code word used by guys to be able to get out of the house at night.
Another code word is "shoe shopping".

Ive been frogging for 20 years, BUT always been off an airboat and out off the main canals.

Just so happens I dont have an airboat as of right now so I built a nice little mud boat (saved $$$). With the waters so low I cant get out to to any fogging areas. I am wondering how the frogging would be on the main canals on the banks? I dont have lights on this mud boat but if I can bag a decent amount of frogs in the deep canals Ill throw some lights on this thing and go at it. I would be going around the sawgrass rec. area, west side of 27.

Thanks!

Frogging is a very expensive hobby, and here's why.

!. You plan to go some night, buy gas. Your wife goes out and buys a purse. $$
2. You buy beer. Your wife buys shoes to match that purse. Several pair. $$
3. You come home late, early morning, and sleep late that morning.
Your wife, came home early, and is up before you and goes to brunch w/
"The Girls". Mimosas, bloody Mary's, etc.
4. You get up around noon and have to clean the couple of frogs that you got,
make a mess. Your wife, well you know what happens. Anything after
you say "yes dear" is the beginning of another argument.

Save yourself a lot of trouble, take the wife for an airboat ride to Gerald's and
buy a couple of pounds from him.

You're biggest fear is that he will bring her back in a few nights of catch up. But don't worry, she will be just as she left---fresh screwed!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :roll: :violent1: :banghead: :toothy7:
