Bullfrogs can prove quite the challenge, but offer tasty cuisine.
PRATT, KS –-(Ammoland.com)- Kansas bullfrog season is less than two weeks away, and for those looking for the ultimate summer fishing challenge, this is it. From July 1-October 31, anglers can attempt to catch these four-legged amphibians with several different techniques.
Bullfrogs may be taken by hook and line, dip net, gig, bow and arrow, or crossbow, and a line must attach bow to arrow, and the arrow must have a barbed head.
If you’re really up for a challenge, bullfrogs can also be taken by hand. The best method is to walk quietly through the water at night and shine a bright light along the bank until a pair of glowing eyes appear.
Temporarily blinded by the light, frogs can be grabbed or netted.
The daily creel limit is eight, with a possession limit of 24. A valid fishing license is required for any person to take, catch, or kill bullfrogs, except persons exempt by law from having such license.
Considered by some as a delicacy, frog legs have a taste and texture that resembles a cross between shrimp and fish. A popular way to cook them is to dip the legs in egg and then into a mixture of flour and corn meal, seasoning salt, and pepper. The legs are then fried to a golden brown and served up hot.
