Opry99er I've got a nice location for anyone who wants it... millions of mudbugs.... can't cast without having them attack your line. Saw a couple fellows with traps... they were pulling out hundreds of these little buggers at a time. Unbelievable.

lvrider Mmnn makes me want to hit 11 mile with a turkery fryer filled with some of these tasty recommendations. Would trout guts and heads be technically illegal for traps? I'm just putting them in the trash otherwise...

I might have to take you up on your offer. I enjoy trying new things and have been curious about crayfish for a while. I'll get with you on this.

redleader Just throw em in a cooler half or 3/4 full of water , add some cornmeal and a little ice if needed to maintain the temps and watch what the water looks like in a few hours, lol, then feed em to your friends and Asian relatives double lol

redleader Ok ok I like a good crawfish boil to but you gotta purge em in cornmeal/ water mixture to clean em out c'mon I'm no rocket scientist but thats pretty basic stuff, there mud bugs lol

No, I did some research on it, and to properly do it, you need a couple days and a kiddy pool to soak them in, or some say you can put salt on them, and rinse them a couple times, but your more likely to kill them doing that. Most of what I found said you dont even need to purge them, and since the water is clean they weren't dirty at all.
