Going again tonight if weather allows.
We ain't outgrown that yet....
Much tougher night. Just got #30 at 11:50. Got 13 on first pond, 0 on second, then 5, 1, 7, 4. Plenty of frogs on all of the ponds we hit, but the high water made them hard to see, and they were wild on pond 2, and 3. This may be our last trip of the year. Definitely won't go back until the ponds go down some.
Anybody ever seen anything like this? A tumor I think. I threw it away.
Covid I'm sure
Where's all the frogs? The big ones? We hit 14 ponds over 3 days and only got 18 frogs (7-10 nice ones). Just about every one of them had several little bullfrogs, but rarely any of the deep croakers. At several of them the frogs still had tadpole tails on them. At several other ponds it was only tree frogs and toads. What gives? Too early? Or just wrong place?
Were the ponds clean around the edges?
All types. Some clean fishery and shrimp ponds, some cattle ponds, some growed up so bad you could barely walk, etc. The clean ponds had more than the others. You were doing good if you heard one deep croaker at a pond. Tons of high pitch screaming tree frogs.
Maybe somebody beat you to them.
Nope. I know for 100% certain several of them hadn't already been gigged. Others around here aren't getting that many either. One landowner said the blue heron are packing them off. Seen them last week.
Blue heron and otters are hurting them around here.
Otters are the devil
Blue herons are hard on em. No doubt.
It kinda looks like a recent injury thAt filled with blood. Maybe a gig got him? I probably would have done same with that one leg without knowing for sure.
Dunno. No apparent injury. Skin was smooth. I threw both away.
