    Crawfish season...

    When I lived in Arkansas there were irrigation canals in the soybean/cotton fields behind the house that were full of crawdads. I had a 10 foot pool with a stiff wire basket on the end that I would drag through the shallow water and pull up dozens of crawdads for fish bait and we would occasionally boil some of the larger ones.

    Good bass bait.

    ive though about setting a trap in the ditch behind my house. Not sure i would eat them, its mostly a drainage ditch from farm fields. Just curious if they are in there.

    Is there a soaking period you recommend to "clean them out"?

    Down here most of them are farm raised, either in ponds or flooded rice fields. There are also those caught in the wild, you can taste the difference...kind of a swampy funk that sings to us regular eaters. There's no soak that I know of though...just a healthy dose of crawfish boil, some red taters, corn on the cob and whole onions thrown in the water and eaten with them.
