We've caught two this spring crawling across our lawn. It was weird. We've never seen them here before. But two wouldn't even be much of an appetizer.

Swamp,
Did you see the pics of where we stocked a pond last week to raise some bugs? I'm thinking about stocking another small pond and selling a few.

The ones crawling across your yard are probably better for bait than eating. Now if you can find a slough holding a bunch of those great big red ones, it's on!!

I'd take one. Jr and I catch locals here and the way we cook them is to bring a big pot of water to a boil. Throw in a bottle of Zaharias crab boil, a half dozen half lemons, an ass load of Cajun seasoning, some ground cayenne, taters, a few bags of crab boil spice packs, a little vinager, throw in the. Crawfish let. It come to simmer then turn of the heat, throw in some corn and turn the heat off and let it sit for 10 or ao

"Uncle Pan's Crawfish, Crab and Shrimp Boil Recipe"

My great Uncle Francis (Uncle Pan) lived in Pierre Part, Louisiana. He was a school teacher and then principle at the elementary school there. He knew EVERYONE in town. He taught the Landry gang on swamp people. This is about as authentic a boil recipe as it gets... :thumbsup:

(recipe is per 10 lbs. of crawfish or shrimp)
5 gallons of water
2 lbs. Salt
1/2 cup cayenne pepper
1 cup vinegar
20-25 bay leaves (fresher the better! we pick them off the bay tree in the yard)
(1) 12 oz. bottle Zataran's Liquid crab boil
3-4 spice bags Zataran's crab boil
6-8 lemons cut in half
10-12 onions cut in 1/2 top to root
6 whole pods of garlic cut in half (cut so each clove is in half)
12-18 small new potatoes (small bag)
4-6 ears of corn cut in half

bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat...boil for 20 minutes. Add new potatoes and boil additional 10 minutes. add crawfish and corn, bring to a rolling boil (start timing it when it reaches a boil) and boil for 5 minutes. turn fire off and let soak 15 minutes...check one bug for taste and if it ain't der yet-soak it som mo until it is spicy enough for you (another 5-10 minutes).


And der ya go....enjoy! :yes: :thumbsup:

...for shrimp, bring to a complete boil and shut off heat. when the shrimp shells start to pull away from the meat, they are done. should take 5-7 minutes of soaking...check one each minute after 5 minutes. drain when done.

...for crabs, boil 5 minutes, then shut off, soak 10-12 minutes.
