Time Well Spent What to Do in August and September I n August and September, make sure to get outdoors to catch the last lingering, lazy days of summer as the season transitions into fall.

Greg Wagner writes: "An effective method to catch a bunch of bullfrogs is to move slowly, shining the shorelines with a good fl ashlight after dark. Spot the frogs on land, keep the light directly on them so they'll freeze in position, and then ease in close enough to catch them with a net or even by hand." Take note that bullfrogs are aquatic creatures, and thus you need a current, valid Nebraska fi shing permit in order to take or attempt to take them.
