Ver Cool Picture CT! I've had crayfish once as a kid. I loved it! Where did you harvest these at if you don't mind me asking?

Thank you.

I can't tell you the exact spot, but I'll say it's somewhere in the Rogue River watershed. Look for creeks/rivers with lots of rocks (places for them to hide) and that's where you will find them in good numbers.

I cook them both cajun style (served hot, boiled with hot spices) and swedish style (served cold the day after being boiled will dill and salt). Both are great.

There are plenty of step by step instructions for both on the internet.

Get in my belly! What traps do you recommend? Minnow traps? Dead fish for bait? They do make great bait-but I'd eat them if I caught any numbers of them.
