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.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
