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.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
    • Hoo boy. I better get me booties on.

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.
    • I'll say one thing for Uncle B______ you're always good for a chuckle or------
    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
