Fry them like chicken. :thumbsup:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

I have two ways( both equally as good)

1.) marinate in italian dressing and fry like chicken
2.)marinate in a little soy sauce, wrap in bacon, slap on grill

Got a question for you guys: do ya'll skin the legs first? I've always eaten the skin, but someone told me to try 'em skinned.

I've only had them skinned and fried like chicken
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

My grandpa used to cut the skin on the neck, snap the head back and peels the whole skin back. They come up skinless and twitchy.

We ate fresh fried Frog legs last night. Caught a mess of 'em thursday night...50 or so frogs. The river is still high and the frogs are still spread out. they normally grab over 100 per boat...Best way to skin them is to grab the skin with your fingers on the back, cut a finger hole with a knife, then pull like cleaning a squirrel-much easier than squirrels though-skin peals off easy. 3 of us cleaned 50 frogs in like 8-10 minutes....

I like them soaked in buttermilk first for about an hour, then batter with a little egg wash, flop in seasoned flour and fry at 375....mmmmm they were awesome!

Here's a pic...
