Crawfishing time!

I usually catch mine especially when the price is high. I usually use deep water nets but decided to make some traps. It was time and labor some but got 35 built and put them out yesterday. Went and ran them today on a short soak and caught enough for a little boil. ImageImageImageImageImage

Those are the ones we always threw back. When I was growing up we always carried a seine and hit the ditches on the way to run our trot lines. If they were big enough to boil they were thrown back, along with the snakes and frogs. And yes, they are great bait for catfish. I admire your willingness to get out and catch your own crawfish. Most people now, including me, are too lazy to go out and catch their own.

Thanks everyone. And no crawfish in the pool, currently I rank last in the house after the animals so I don't need the help haha.

Flipper I use different kinds as I get tired of the same flavor. I like lousiana's boil, cajunland and Rex the best. They are all dump n boil, no need to add anything but the fixings you want to eat boiled

I went again today and caught around 50#, it's still kind of early but if our water stays up I will have a good season catching my own bugs from the gear I made, all together makes for good memories and good eating.
