RE: No frog legs in/around Melbourne,Fla.???
My first experience gigging frogs was along irrigation ditches around Coalinga, California back in the '50s. I'm still surprised that I ever considered going again after that first outing. We'd been drinking in a bar in Coalinga when someone got the great idea, as it was close to midnight, to go frog gigging. There were five or six of us -- and two gigs. I was first gigged in my butt while bending over and shining a light on the ditch.
Next, I was gigged in my right foot while standing around minding my business.
I do remember that we had a flour sack full of frogs when we left, but that's about it in terms of memory.
Oh, did I mention that we'd brought a couple of bottles of booze with us?
