Crawdad Mania - 2016
« on: May 09, 2016, 09:15:21 AM »
It's that time of year again folks, Crawdad Mania is upon us!  :IBCOOL:

Same as last year largest crawdad and/or most in one pot and ending on the season closing October 31st.  Also, in keeping this honest only pics of live or uncooked hogcraws for the competition but any and all pics are welcome.

Winner with the largest Hogcraw gets a whole trap set-up, line, buoy and trap this year.

Something new this year, post pics of your crawdad boils and we will vote at the end of the year for best boil.  The winner will get little surprise in the mail.

Let the catching begin!

I usually go after them in Lake Washington because it's close and I have a launch pass, but it's closed because of the possibility of me catching a Chinook in one of my pots. :bash:

very intrigued by craw fishing on the westside. I have set many pots over the last two years, hiked into several spots and only got a few. Love it though :)  I haven't tried a few lake spots I think hold many more but wanted to test the local walk in waters first.  My only experience was when I was younger my auntie Louis Lince who was an icon in TWISP took us dadding on Peareygin lake and we pulled 5 gallon buckets full and had a family feast. I wish I had pics of those days but they were normal back then. So was killing 10 deer a year to feed your family:)
