Learn to catch and cook gi­ant bull­frogs like these two kings of the swamp do. By Michael R. Shea

n the late spring, when the nights turn muggy and the bugs come out, you can find Tim Reed and Rodney Smith pad­dling their 14-foot ca­noe— called Frogzilla—through the swamps, streams, and hid­den back­wa­ters of north­ern New York in search of gi­ant bull­frogs. These guys rou­tinely fill freez­ers with out­size frog legs, and the tac­tics they use will work any­where frogs are found. Last sum­mer, they shared their se­crets with me. Meet the Frog Kings.
