    We've got this pond (it's really a water feature) in the yard that we never clean out. Let's just say it is natural. Well, every spring the frogs VERY noisily get it on. Usually the raccoons eat up all the tadpoles at some point in the season, but this year the tadpoles got to live a life.

    We're not talking Exodus plague of the Most High God, but we've got maybe hundreds.

    They're everywhere here. The actual Sutter Creek is a block away and we're on a hillside with a very high groundwater level. So there's lots of nice damp havens for the wee croakers. To fracture a phrase, the frogs are in hog heaven. :D

    I'll bet you have very few mosquitos. I like to lay in bed and listen to nature sounds such as frogs, crickets, cicadas, birds, etc. I think I'd like having a million frogs in the yard.

    they make good fishing bait, me personally if you like the frogs so much I'd do a lot of koon hunting. Reptiles are really awesome they get ride of a lot annoying things mostly bugs and rats, sometimes people if you chuck snakes at them. :p

    I think I'd have a difficult time putting a hook through those frogs to use them as bait. :eek:

    But I bet they do make great bait.

    That is one of the coolest versions of Frog Went a-Courtin' that I have heard! And let's just say that folk music is the world I live in. That guitarist was really fun!

    Thnx!

    I was cutting around my pond yesterday on my riding mower. Just right in front of me the very small bull frogs were jumping from the bank into the water. It caused a bass feeding frenzy and muddied the whole shore line. NEAT! Have a bunch of eaters I'd like to get, but no boat. Can't gig them from shore at night because of a population of water moccasins. Frog legs, yum yum...
