Nice method with twisting the tail fin off. I'll remember this for next time.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

That's one of the best crawdad eating instructions I've ever read, No Mayo. I love them too. I've even thought about building my own tanks for raising them. Imagine a never ending supply of them right in your own live tank.

I built a couple crawfish traps using hardware cloth (I think 1/4") and have used them a few times to catch them myself.

Mudbugs The countdown starts. Crayfish to me as a child, lifting rocks in the creek and catching them for no purpose other than to say I did, keeping them for a few days and then walking them back down to the creek and dumping them back in. Later I learned they were also called crawfish. Probably a dialect thing :angel: And later yet... mudbugs. Mudbugs? Yes, mud[B]bugs[/B]...:ermm: No matter, those [B]bugs[/B] got some nice tail! And they look just like miniature [B]lobsters!!![/B] :chef: So being foodies we all like to try a new recipe that catches our eye. And we all like to try new food... within reason. You know me and weird veggies :wink: And a new dining experience usually leaves a lasting impression. So the countdown begins until Wednesday when I can tie all of these things together. I just placed an order for 10 lbs of mudbugs! :smile: Armed with a couple TV shows under my belt, along with some youtube vids, most of with are pathetic, the supplier's website instructions, and anything offered in this thread... hint, hint, hint, Wednesday you all know what I'll be having for dinner. 3 stars 1 reviews
