All I've caught has been the non native craws. Where are the signals?
Pavement, crowds and inaccurate rifles...
Thanks anyway.

Anyone ever get them out of green river? I know they're in there but have only seen small ones.

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!

So... Do we wait til the end of the season to post picks of the boils?
 I removed my low country "Heart Attack Boil" Pic from last Saturday.

I didn't have a lot of time to get very creative with it though.

I was thinking everyone would post their boil pics all season long and we vote at the end of the year.  If you have multiple boils post them and all pics will be voted on.

Shrimper, "epic" really? Thanks

I expect my trappin' bud and I will do another boil before the end of the season. The next boil will be for score ;)
This is 120 craws, red potatos, mushrooms, smoked sausage, white onion, sweet corn and a bag of Crab boil seasoning.
On the side was weber kettle grilled jalapeno and asparagus (tossed in an olive oil based italian themed marinade) And more husk on grilled sweet corn.
No one left hungry.

Ill take more field pics in the future. Tics are out!

Pavement, crowds and inaccurate rifles...
Thanks anyway.
