Don't forget crawfish traps for next trip on the pond, lake or river. They're good eating and great for bait.
We just used the digity thingies at the end of our arms..... but I can see where a trap is better.Ooooh yea, they sure are.
As kids, we never had a trap so we'd find the bushiest plant we could, lop off a good sized branch and then tie meat scraps such as bacon rind and meat bones to it.
Then we'd lower it into a pool with a rope and give it a few hours.
When we pulled it in, we'd quickly grab the crawlies that were clinging on it and stick them in a bucket ready for dinner.
Mmmmm hmmmm! :
Per AZGFD they are NOT native to Arizona, and it is ILLEGAL to transport them LIVE from the water source where captured except in a few counties in the southern portion of the state, I forget which ones.If you're in AZ, don't release any crawfish you got for bait, keep them or kill them, but don't release 'em.
We grew some in a tank with other fresh water fish, no warmers just an oxygen pump.I'm interested in raising crawdads for food. The fact is that I love to eat them. Freshwater lobsters!
So, I've been looking around for ways to raise them on my own land. If you were going to raise them for food, how would you set it up?
