Normally they trap Snapping Turtles with traps specifically for that purpose. I've never tried to catch them with a fishing pole. You can buy traps online fairly cheap. Be careful! They're faster than you think.

Besides frog fishing, has anyone tried turtle fishing (snapping turtles? I have not tried it here in Dane county but have seen snapping turtles in waubesa and crystal lake. I've been wanting to fish for them but not sure if it's allowed. Per regulation book, turtle season is July 15th to November 30th but not too specific as where to legally fish for them. Would anyone know if you can just use hook and line anywhere here in the local lakes? Thanks.

If you want to catch frogs use a frog lure and braid. Bullfrogs will chase them across a pond. They hate other frogs in their territory!!

In doing research there is a limit of 5 frogs per angler. No ammunition is allowed. I was stopped by the local warden this past weekend and he was definitely surprised as to what was going on. Also got schooled as to where you can and cannot frog. Im just looking to get a few for a tasty fry. Anyone know of any ponds s.e? I dont want to intrude on others territory.

Washington County I net bull frogs in the small drainage pond by the trailer parking area on Little Cedar. Large circle hook through back leg. Guys were even gigging them there last year and had a bunch for dinner. Early morning evenings they never last long on the surface. I also get dirty looks netting them on the ponds at the Washington County fair grounds.

For what it's worth, i used to use a 14' fiberglass cane pole.tie on a hair jig even a small mepps spinner. Find a creek pond etc with bullfrogs,with the canepole you could reach through the bull rushes,dangle the lure in there face and they will bite it.lot's of fun

A few questions. How do you guys catch frogs and what do you do with them? Is there a bag limit for them? I've never targeted frogs before but this sounds really interesting.

Thanks.
