Frogging

Reply
 
I have been frogging a few other times before, and I am planning another trip tonight. Just wondering if someone could tell me a distinct way to tell the difference between a pig frog and bull frog. Last time we went we seen a bunch of smaller frogs that we thought were small bull frogs, but the more I think about it, they might have been pig frogs. I want to make sure I don't pass up anymore frogs that are legal pig frog size thinking that they are under sized bull frogs.

it's really hard to tell the difference in the water, look at the snout, pigs are pointed, where bulls are blunt, pigs never get over 5' tip to crotch, the web on the feet are full toe to toe on pig's, i caught a few pigs in the past and i have to put them on the side of bulls to tell the difference. enjoy

We caught these last trip we went on a couple weeks back. Assuming they are all bullfrogs, because I was told bullfrogs don't have the ridges along their back, but these did and their nose doesn't look too blunt to me like other pictures I've seen before. I'm still confused like no tomorrow!

Albino Buck's right. The back feet of pig frogs are webbed all the way to the tips of the toes. On bullfrogs the fourth toe extends past the web.

that looks like all bull's in that pic, pig's rarely get past the 5' mark, leaving to many people passing them up thinking they are small bulls.
What to do !, if it's looks like a pig and i spear it, then find out it's a 4 1/2 ' bull, i have to feed it to the gators. cheaper than risking a ticket.

Well Albino Bucks if you don't know how to tell the difference between the 2 before you spear it, you shouldn't be out there. Also you must be a girl, because real men catch frogs with their hands or net and don't spear them, so if you do make a mistake, it is just catch and release.

My 11 year old son catches with his hands.

Just my 2 cents,
