    I was introduced to frog-legs in 1959, in Bainbridge, GA.

    Billy and I would canoe around the pond, after dusk, set 2" candle-stubs on a pieces of board every 25-30 feet around the pond. Come back around on the next pass and scoop up frog, candle, board and all with a big net on a 6' pole. Usually get 2 or 3 per sweep and relight the candle, set it adrift again. (I did the paddling, thus Billy was in charge of the netting - - - because this Yankee-boy was not too keen on dealing with the occasional moccasin which was netted-up at the same time). We'd put the frogs in a gunny-sack and quit after we had a good half-sackfull. We would then go to his place and clean the legs, which were usually 8-9 inches long..

    His wife, a really sweet country girl (also from Georgia) would fry the fresh frog-legs in a nice light batter in an iron skillet about half the size of Connecticut. She'd serve them with turnip greens, fried 'taters, stewed tomatoes with onion and okra, cornbread, and iced tea - not too sweet, but with a sprig of peppermint in it.

    Haven't had fresh frog-legs since.

    I gotta stay out of the Lounge - this sort of makes me wish I had never come back above the Mason-Dixon. Good friends, good food, good times. . . . . . . . . . I miss 'em.

    YES! That is exactly how we caught the frogs! When I was 10 I would visit a girl friends house and her Dad and brothers taught us how to catch the frogs. Since we were young, stupid and little they'd have her and I go into the water (at night) and catch the frogs that they would spot light on. Some of those frogs were bigger than the dolls we played with. We'd wrap our arms around them and bring them to the edge for the guys to take. The next day her Father would fix them up and everyone would eat them. I haven't had frog in years, but I do remember it was good. I will never forget seeing their eyes popping out from the water right next to you and the sound they make is deafening.

    Added: I should have stated that was in Southern IL. I've also been noodling and that is FUN. It doesn't get much more back woods than that. I absolutely LOVE fishing so when I was introduced to noodling, I had the time of my life.

    I had a few when I was posted in Oklahoma, I had a few things down that way I never had before, I ate snake Rattlers, ate some Scorpions - which by the way taste a lot like Crab, a very light crab flavor. Damn the Scorpions almost got me for being a Northerner but I was smart enough not to jolt, or freak out when some one said dont move, I stopped dead in my tracks, had one of those baby buggers on the back of my neck, they got it off, but said that those babies can kill a whole lot faster than the big guys, o took on a big Tarantula too that was something, I have eaten a few of those in my day, I like them when they are cooked right, if they do not cook them right the middle is nasty, it is like fish that is not cooked all the way through. I like Sushi but not when I am expecting it to be cooked, also never really got my fill of those frog legs only had a few, and miss the flavor they were done up in a Cajun style. I seriously miss southern cooking.

    Yes I have and will eat frogs legs again. I've also eaten alligator, snake as well as many other strange foods from around the world. None of which is on my favorite food list however most are sometimes surprisingly good just not enough to make my favorites foods tops list.

    Being raised on a farm in Florida, I love fried frog legs. Also Gopher turtle soup, rabbit stew, and rattlesnake cooked over an open fire.

    I'll eat just about anything, as long as it is fried. But for God's sake, quit cutting the legs off all those Frenchmen.

    We have a lake house down on the Louisiana border, this year was the first time my wife would let me take our daughter out gigging frogs. She loved it, I thought she wouldn't like touching them but she jumped right in and even got a few on her own (with dad and Papaw's help). She loves to help me cook the catch as well, gator, snake, fish, frogs, if we can catch it she will help me cook and eat it.
    A gun is like a woman it's all in how you hold her.
