I'm going to try it with some shrimp pots.  Hopefully that works great.  I don't see why it wouldn't. 

What's the best way to cook them up while camping?

I use a combo of homemade pots and shrimp pots.  The smaller mesh "coonstripe" shrimp pots seem to work best.

There are many ways to cook them up but my favorite while camping is doing a big boil with potatoes, corn, onions, kielbasa, and of course crawdads.  Drain when all is cooked and dump out for the big feast.

 Ya buddy, I plan on it! Haven't got out yet up here, but plan to the last weekend of June. We went back home in early March and did a few boils and won the people's choice award at the cajun cookoff. Hopefully this cold snap goes away and the water keeps warming up. I'm getting hungry!

Any luck in mountain lakes?  I put out 4 pots for a couple hours while fishing with no luck. 300 acre lake at 2500ft west side.

If I did that, my family would disown me! The recipe has been winning awards since I was a kid. They take crawfish boiling very very seriously!

I was worth a shot!  I'm going to give it a try camping in a month or so (assuming I can catch a few hundred crawfish).

Yeah we catch them all over in the cascades. The pac nw crawdad is the one thatís invasive everywhere else. Literally all over the place in Washington

I use fish carcasses, preferably from fish of the body of water you are fishing.  I have also used canned mackerel with good success as well but need to put the canned fish in a bait bag.

Take it from my friend who's a real Pro at catching them, these are the best waters around for Crawdadn'.
WASHINGTON - Lake Washington, lower Columbia River, Lake Whatacom, Moses Lake, Snake River, Williams lake, Amber lake, and Rock lake.
OREGON - Lake "Billy" Chinook, Willamette Valley streams, Tualatin River and its tributaries, Lake Klamath, Timothy Lake.
IDAHO - Snake River, Upper Salmon Falls, Potlach Creek, Henry's Lake

Hereís a idea. Send me a bag of the recipe. Enough for 50lbs and will have a taste test 😉. Iíll pay for spices and shipping 😉🥃🇺🇸
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

Maybe we should meet up one day?! There's a lot more that goes into it than just the spices. Timing,temp, garlic heads,onions, sausage, potatoes, exct.... all take spice out of the boil. Timing on everything that goes into the pot is VERY important.
