...and Spring is almost here! Boiled crawfish, raw oysters, fried speckled trout, grilled redfish and Natural Lights

i've watched people catch a whole bunch of drum in the fox using them!! i think when i try to use them they crawl under rocks and thats why i dont catch any thing!! because the only time i caught a fish was reeling it in and that was a smallie like 10 inches

I grew up in Door County. We would flip over rocks and find these guys and keep them in our minnow buckets with a few minnows. We may have lost a few minnows to the crawfish but then we could always buy more minnows.

When there shells would get soft we would take a hook and put it right through the tail. This was great for perch and rock bass. It would have worked well for smallmouth too, but when I was a kid Door County Smallmouth were not nearly as popular.

The hard shelled crawfish, we would split the tail off from the body. Using the till we would remove the hard shell and place the soft white meat onto our hooks. This would work for about two fish and then you would have to rebait. However with the gobies I do not know how effective this method is.
