Well here’s a subject I bet few people have covered in a podcast. Today I talk about the nearly lost Southern art of frog-gigging.
I’d have a hard time trying to describe just how fun it is to go frog gigging. If being muddy, in waist high water with snakes in the dark with a sharp pointy stick sounds fun then this is the podcast you want to listen to. I was fortunate to have so many places to gig that many of my summer nights revolved around gigging season.
In this episode I discuss:
*Why I don’t use a boat and think people who do should have a good reason to do so.
*The technique including gigging with friends.
*Cleaning and dressing frog legs.
*What frog legs taste like and how to cook them.
Anyone who wants more detail or a written copy of this should check out Backwoods Home Magazine later this Summer when my article on the subject is set to appear.
