I saw this description of frog gigging on another board and thought it probably described this pass time as practiced by corjack and his buddies. 8)
Here’s the way I learned to do it:
Start drinking beer with your redneck cousins around noon on a hot summer day. About 4:00 pm switch to drinking sour mash. Sometime about 9:00 pm someone is gonna say, “Cuz, we shud go stick us a tote sack full of frogs.”
Everyone will quickly agree that’s a grand idea, so you throw a small flat bottom boat and a big cooler of beer and bourbon in the back of the pick up and haul ass down to the river bottom. About half way there, you stop and put the boat and as much beer as you can find back in the pick up and tie it down this time.
When you get to the river, you and your two drunk cousins take turns falling in the water while trying to launch the boat. Once everyone gets in the boat, someone is going to remember that you forgot to bring the frog gigs and lights. Pull the boat up to shore, swat mosquitos and finish all the beer while arguing over who forgot the frog gigs.
About the time the beer runs out, send the youngest cousin back to town to get the frog gigs and tell him he might as well pick up more beer and liquor as long as he’s in town.
Pass out for an hour until your cousin gets back with the gigs, lights and booze. Put the boat back in the water and make sure everyone gets good and wet again.
Paddle along the shoreline, shining the spotlights on the shallow water looking for frogs. When you see one, pole the boat over close enough to spear the frog with a gig (think of a small pitchfork with a 6 foot handle).
Repeat until the booze runs out or the sun comes up. Drive home drunk and sleep until about 2 in the afternoon.
Next time you’re in the States, I’ll have my cousins Otis and Daryl show you exactly how it’s done.
Any truth to it corjack?? 😆
