Never would have thought you could catch crawdads at the lake... I was up in north shore this weekend with my son, and started moving rocks and there they were! I never would have thought of catching them in such large lakes... The area was shallow, and warmer. lots of shad in the water, and lots of rocks, big and small.
I saw many, and grabbed this one, so I could show my son, and take a great picture for the photo album. Then I thought, it would be fun to share!
As long as you grab them from the "butt" they can't claw you... Then again, if they did claw you, it really doesn't hurt!
