Hi Guys,
My son has built a couple of great looking crayfish traps. He copied a desighn from the internet and used a couple of his own ideas. Where are some good places that he can try them out. And has any of you used live crayfish for Bass bait

Jones Lake, there are so many in this lake, it is unbeleivable, we were up there last weekend, and threw out a trap overnight. Well when I pulled it up in the morning, atr first I thought I snagged something, but it was just absolutely full, greedy little buggers!!!
We used chicken one day, but had way more success using fish heads and tails from the previous days catch.
They are not a bad size, and taste just like lobster, ...and dont forget the garlic butter.

I have caught crayfish for as long as I can remember. we use to get tons out of lake of the woods (hope) but the population seems to have diminished quite a bit over the years. What was the largest crayfish you got in your trap at jones lake?

btw I read that there are crayfish up to 8 pounds in some river in europe or something.

Can you just do a daytrip and catch during the daytime or do you need to leave overnite
