GEAR GUIDE

TRAP

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. 

BAIT

There are crayfish bait pellets on the market but you can use a can of catfood, or scraps and remains from other harvests. 

NET

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.

BAIT CONTAINER

Find an easy entry cage or creel to hold your crayfish collection, like this vintage Bait Canteen.
