I did pretty good tonight at a small swamp. No bullfrogs, all green frogs. The rain was nice. It kept me cool and rained steady enough to keep the mosquitoes away. I got my 15 frog limit in around 2 hours. 12-14" and a few smaller ones. I'm going to fry them up tomorrow. I just got an LED MagLite from Lowes and man did that do the trick! Good luck to all you frog giggers tonight.

I gig alot and recently bought a gig from SBT Outdoors (pretty sure that's the name); they were featured in Field & Stream an issue or two back. $17 which I was not happy about plus shipping but it is an awesome gig. The tines are super sturdy, long and sharp. I've hit it on multiple logs and rocks with no bending or breaking. You can also buy replacement tines. A buddy and me are up to about 90 frogs together this season and and almost all were taken with the new gigs.

Markfish, I wanted a pole just like you said, one I could extend. I went to lowes and got a paint roller handle that is about 5'8" collapsed and can open to 10' it is aluminum so it's light, set me back about $13 but the reach is worth it.
