Those look like Rusty's to me with the bumps on the claws.

Plus that is quite a haul!

I was looking at the claws and definitely knew they weren't signals.
Didn't look like red swamp either.
I've only seen Rustys alive, not cooked so I wasn't sure. I think you're right!!!

No need to "purge" crawdads.  While alive and whole, grab and twist the center "fin" - at the end of the tail - 90 degrees and pull.  Do this just before cooking. Vein comes out easy 99% of the time.

Vein comes out the same way after cooked. Learned this from Bob hansler on you tube center fin grab twist side to side and pull works great

What kind of pots do you use? I know you can only have 5 and how long do you soak?

Do you use rot cord? Iím in spokane and looking to get some crawfish I was also wondering if you can get them on a trot line like crabs?
