HOW TO BE
A specific crayfish trap or a minnow trap, are baited and left in the water. Prey is able to climb in but not back out.
There are crayfish bait pellets on the market but you can use a can of catfood, or scraps and remains from other harvests.
The most fun is had getting in the water and after them yourself. Bring along your dip net and bring it down quickly upon those torpedo critters.
Find an easy entry cage or creel to hold your crayfish collection, like this vintage Bait Canteen.
To become one with the underwater world you will want a secure fitting and ultra clear silicone lensed mask, snorkel with built in purge valve and speedy fins in your size.
WRemaining submerged for extended periods will drain your body heat. Retain warmth with a 3mm – 5mm full-length wetsuit.
Fear the pincers no longer with a pair of neoprene gloves.
