My season has been dismal... barely any crappie but I have been tearing up the largemouth. Yesterday I decided to spend the last 2 hours or so of daylight fishing... was pitching a strike king rage tail crawfish along the grass and moss buildup... and ended up watching a big bull frog run down and gobble up my crawfish. I was going to try and get a picture of him dangling from my soft plastic but he dropped off when I tried to get the picture. Wasn't too bad in terms of size 5-6 of him and you could have a nice frog leg snakck.

I have caught a couple already casting small crank baits for bream, never notice them hiding in the grass and they just pounce on them soon as they hit the water. And surprisingly hard to reel in.

I've caught several - and pretty nice-sized ones, too - on fly rod poppers, but I learned one thing early on.
Don't put 'em on a metal stringer! :eek:
Pete :p

I had a big ole bullfrog jump on a topwater frog over and over again. Couldn't tell if he was fighting or trying to find a date

That's what I kinda thought... I made a pitch over by some grass when he decided to start hopping after it... so I made 10 or so pitches before he tried to eat it. I was bored so I was just antagonizing him to death. lol.
