I accidently spilled a bucket with about 24 crawdads in it in the back of our truck one day going to the lake. When i got there i gathered them all up, thought for sure i had them all, went about my day fishing and went home. later i went out to our truck to get something out of the back of it and when i opened it up, there was this little crawdad, madder than a hatter, both claws up in the air. I could not believe it, that it was still alive after at least 5 hours in the back of the truck out of water. I took it in the house and put it in the fish tank.
I do want to ask if anyone here ever freezes crawdads to use for a later date? I have tried that but find that for some reason, they turn black on me. Anyone know why that happens?
