Crawdad attack!!!!

9 posts in this topic

I have a small aquarium with my daughter's pet turtle in the lower level of the house. I caught a crawdad in a minnow trap last week and thought it would be an interesting addition to the turtle tank. My mom and stepdad spent the night on Friday. I heard a scream from the bathroom on the lower level on Saturday morning.

It turns out that the crawdaddy had crawled out of the tank at some point and was crawling around the floor. It ambushed my half asleep stepdad on Saturday morning and double pinched him on his barefoot. I don't think I've ever seen my mom laugh so hard....

Well I have a bad update to this story. After the attack yesterday morning, I tossed the crawdaddy back in the tank. I'm going fishing today, so I was thinking of using him as bait. Of course it was stupid to assume that it wouldn't escape again. Just checked the tank and it ain't in there. The wife wasn't happy about the stunt yesterday, so I better find it before something else happens....I'll keep the post updated.....

Now all you have to do is get a bushel of rusties and have a boil and and your step dad can have the last word.

And that brings me to; Does any body know where I can get some fresh rusties up north to eat. Seriously.

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!

    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
