  1. If you saw something thats shaped like a frog, but its in the river, its a diving beetle. You do use a net to catch it....wait til it scurries over to the bank where you are standing and throw the net. It might take a few tries but keep throwing the net.

  1. It might not have been a frog it could've been a water beetle although this is not the right season for beetles or frogs..but if it is a bug I would swing your net at it.

  2. I don't think they are in the rivers. They are in the small holding ponds...and that's where I caught my first one tonight. (and you use a fishing pole...I thought you had to use a net)
    It might have been a diving beetle you saw in the river.

  3. There is no stragety to catch frogs. They are in little ponds. You just wait in the summer night time and catch them.

  4. Frogs are in the small ponds....all day. Just use the fishing pole. They are easy to catch.

  5. Sorry to say but you can only catch frogs in the small holding ponds. If you hear the like, a chirping/ribbit noise, then you know that a frog is in there. Just cast your line and see what happens. You might have seen some other bug or something.

  7. Frogs are in ponds. Ponds are all over your town. So they come out in Summer at about 4:00pm - 8:00pm.

  8. I think frogs are in ponds, not rivers.
    You can find them during the summer.
    You use a fishing rod to catch them, not a bug net.
    There really is no strategy for catching them. You catch frogs the same way you would catch any other fish.

  9. Just to add some additional information:

    You'll find diving beetles in the rivers. They DO look like frogs, but frogs are only found in the holding ponds.

    To catch the diving beetle, you must use the net. When the diving beetle is under water, they appear as a black shadow, like fish do. But when they come to the surface, you can see some markings on them. Wait until they have surfaced AND are right next to the edge of the river. Then swing your net!

    Oddly enough, when you see a frog in the holding pond, their shadow looks like a fish...lol
