You will need to keep an eye out for Frogs in ponds if you want to catch one. There is no specific time of day to catch these guys, so they’ll be hanging out in ponds all day long. They look like fish when it comes to their shadow, and you won’t find them hopping around on land.

The hardest part about catching Frogs is probably the fact that they spawn in ponds. This means their spawn rate is not as high as an ocean fish, for instance. You likely won’t need any fish bait to catch your first frog.

Frogs only sell for 120 Bells, so it’s not really something you want to farm for Bells. It’s just one of those critters you want to catch once or twice to fill up your Critterpedia and have in the tank. I hope this helped you learn how to catch a frog in Animal Crossing New Horizons!
