Crawfishing is such a uncommon thing people see floats on a line and they think whatís that? So they pull it in. And a lot of people are trash so they take them. If I canít tie them off all sneaky like I wonít fish that spot. And target spot I donít think someone will fish. Itís about craw boil time

 :yeah:

I use green paracord now and tie off or use a grapple to rake the line off the bottom, don't be like me folks and use floats for all to see unless you're directly tending them, but if your tending them you don't need floats

Hoping to set a few this evening for a soak while I kokanee fish if the pleasure boaters stay at the docks. Can you catch them up in the weeds? Most of what I've read seemed to say to drop pots at the edge of the weed line. That's usually 20'-30' of water where I'm setting.

I ran a couple pots last year in the Columbia and Snake but had terrible catch rates. I'm not sure what I did wrong. I put them in shallow water near rocks with fish for bait yet somehow I ended up catching more shrimp than crawdads. I didn't even know shrimp existed in the rivers. Any pointers about the big rivers and what time of year?

the snake is by far my most productive water, chicken for bait set just like you did

Nothing on a couple of sets in 20'-30' yesterday evening, rocky bottom. Soaked for 2 1/2 hours or so. Cat food for bait...if I was better at Kokanee fishing I might have better bait for next time but no luck on that front either!

I think next week I'll start setting some overnight in spots I can reach from shore. Check em in the morning on the way to work.
