Dam yanks , even the crayfish eat too much

Good to eat i hope .
Go catch a truckload and bring them down to Padstien , Probably be the best earner this year .

Much like when the grey squirrels came over they replaced the lovely reds.

Sounds to me like we should start selling them to the French - they will eat anything and not only will we make money but rid our waters of these nasties!!!

Hey Nos, good catch.
Don't forget to purge them just before cooking

Just watched Ray Mears cooking some of those crayfish on an open fire .
Did you see his method for preparing them ?

Wash em, purge by adding salt to clean water ( this makes them take a dump), boil in seasoned water for 7 mins. allow to cool until water is just warm. Then "pinch some tail and suck some head" Very good.
