Nice Euro, some good eats there!

That turtle is lucky he didn't drown himself.

Are those catfish fillets?  They look awesome!

Nice assortment Jager!

Do you mind sharing the recipe? I know it's obvious what is in the boil but what spices and do you boil the fish with everything?  Adding salmon and whitefish seems like a very tasty idea.  :EAT:

We grilled the fish separate.
We used water and about 8 beer's to boil everything. Old Bay and garlic powder and a little salt in the water. Then we took some fresh herbs out of my niece's herb garden: lemon basil, parsley, basil and some store bought herb provance, mustard seed dried onion and dill seed and made a big boil bag out of cheese cloth. Sprinkled some fresh parsley in after it came out and had some garlic butter for dipping but I didn't use the butter that much the flavor was already there.
YUM!
Lead em if they're running.

Are crawdads in most all lakes, rivers and ponds to some degree? Just have to find what they like and where they are?
