Does anyone else suck heads?

On the weekend of August 18th and 19th, Jan and I will be hosting the 3rd annual Crawfish Festival with our Fly Fishing Club. Crawfish can be harmful to our lakes and streams. We have found the best way to eliminate these creatures is to eat them. Last year we trapped several hundred and boy were they good. The event is held at a campground 30 miles east of Payson, AZ. If you are in the area, stop by and suck a few heads with us. The campground has many spots and no hookups. PM me for more details. If anyone has a made some crayfish gumbo, please post it here as well.

Well, that heading is sure to get some attention.
I've never eaten them, I can't say I've been tempted. Your dog seems to be quite involved in the process there - has he/she ever been bitten?
That does sound like a great area for a camping trip however. Y'all have fun!

Richard, I wasn't familiar with that expression. Question is, do you? Learn something new every day:
"Cajuns enjoy crawfish peeling contests and will even suck the heads, which mortifies outsiders who have never enjoyed crawfish let alone suck the heads." from Kuva:Acadiana Louisiana region map.svg &#226;€“ Wikipedia
Do You Suck Heads?: Easter is crawfish-boil time in Louisiana - CHOW
Got Crawfish? : New Orleans Fig Street Studio : CafePress.com


We'll give you just enough rope ... to dangle that kettle! Be right over.

I don't think you're allowed to suck heads unless you're within 30 miles of Lafayette. It's an experience you will never forget.

Gracie (she) did that one time and did not get pinched. I was pinched once when I took that crayfish out of her mouth.

Still looking for a good gumbo recipe.

We put small traps out in the lake with different baits inside of them. Cat food works well. This year I am going to try some chicken parts and see how they work. The crayfish crawl in and can not get out. The best time to trap is at night.

OK, that makes sense. We used to trap Blue crabs in the Chesapeake Bay. We found chicken parts to be the best bait, so it would make sense they would work for crawdads too. What lake?

Kozy Kitten (the absolute best bait) cat food and corn meal mixed works well. Kozy Kitten is made directly from the fish product and is great for attracting shrimp too when we cast for bait in the marsh.

Have fun.

We go to a small lake called Willow Springs Lake to catch the little guys.

As they say in Acadiana "Suck da heads; squeeze da tips". I lived in South Louisiana for two years. The food and people couldn't be better.
