It occurred to me that many of our forum visitors enjoy fishing and hunting -- here's a new place to discuss your outings, your interests, and any advice or stories you'd like to share.

I'm pretty excited about this. I hope people will post on crawfishing and crabbing as well.

I wonder how many people (aside from the pros) catch crawfish now-a-days. My father and his friends did so during the 1950s and '60s but when live crawfish by the sack became easily accessible via local seafood markets they stopped going out to the swamps. I don't now know anyone who goes crawfishing but I'd like to hear about it from those who do.

Where do you go? What do you use as bait? How many nets do you put out? How often do you check them? Do you wind up with sacks of crawfish? I want to know all about it.

My spots are secrets! Maybe I'll reveal them at a later time.

I use beef melt for bait and put out two dozen nets. Once I'm done setting the nets, I go check the first one and usually that's enough time. The catch depends on if they are there or not. A good morning can easily yield two sacks. A bad morning may end up with two crawfish.

My father also used "melts". Where do you buy them now?

How far apart to do you place your nets?

And where can I find crawfish nets for sale?

You can get melt at most grocery stores once the season begins. Two weeks ago, I talked to a butcher at Rouses in Kenna, brah, and he said he would be getting it in last week.

You can get simple nets at Academy. A dozen cost about $15 or $20. My friend's grandfather makes them as well. His are much better, but they cost more. I can get you some of those if you want.

If I have no competition for a spot and it's unlimited length, I'll put the traps out every 15 yards or so.
