A local grocery store was selling frozen packages of peeled crayfish tails last week so I picked up a couple of pounds and added them to my favorite cajun recipe given to me by my southern friend. It's called sauce picante (Troy made it with alligator on Swamp People in season 1). It was delicious and I want more!

As part of the adventure of being up north this summer at the cabin, I got three crayfish traps. I have been researching good locations and bait to use which are rocky shorelines and rock piles and fresh dead fish such as perch or walleye heads and entrails. They apparently are more active at night so we're going to "set pots" after supper, check them once before we go to bed and again in the morning. It should be fun, especially for my 12 year old son.

I'm headed up to get things ready for the opener tonight and plan to do a trial run. It might be a little slow yet with the water temps but I'll post the outcome next week. In the meantime, please share any experiences or tips you have on this subject, The Undeadliest Catch.

Do you live on the lake where you trap? Do people mess with your traps while they are unattended? My biggest worry about trapping somewhere besides the lake we're on is getting my traps stolen even if I have them identified per the DNR regulations.

I saw plans on the internet to make an underwater floating rope harness that you catch with a grappling hook. Unless someone would snag it while fishing, you wouldn't know that it's there.
