    Mudbugs are all over Texas , Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. They live in muddy fields, in large quantities. And yes, they do taste kinda like lobster.

    Down here in Florida, everything tastes like chicken! Actually, those mudbugs are very tasty. Even the cafeteria in our local vo-tech school has been known to cook up a mess of 'em. Hate to admit it, but I draw the line at ****in' the heads.
    We used to catch them in a creek behind my high-school, but there's a housing development there now.

    crawdads

    here in Arizona they have infested the lakes and G&F is asking everyone to do their part, I am- by eating them. taste great but alot of people used them for bait and left them alive, now we CANNOT transport them alive.

    hey boneguru you said you can't transport them live. bring the boiling pot to the lake and some nets. sounds like a real good tail gate party. how big are they over thereyou could be sittin on a gold mine. put you a seafood shop on the lake . hot boiled crawfish with a view. it's a thought

    actually we do but i don't boil them at the lake, usually in a pan with olive oil and wine and spices lots a spices, I likes em hot. we take some home but we have to "render them dead" by Az law to take em home.
    lets have some of those recipes

    dead crawfish????????

    before ya render them dead be sure to put them in some slightly salted water. it will make them move their bowels.
    Then boil them alive and if ya got any with straight tails when ya peel them ya know they were dead and didn't pass their bowels.
    the ones with the curled tails cleaned themselves out and when ya peel them they don't have so much in their vein(which is actually their intestine)

    Why use them for bait awhen they are better than any old bass any day?

    They are boneless, too. Now, ****ing the "heads" is really gross because that is the abdominal cavity, not the head. you are slurping the stomach and intestinal contents, plus parts of the gills and various internal organs.

    When I used to go to Miss. on business the vendor would have thousands upon thousands of crawdads. I would go nuts eating them. I haven't done that in 8 years now. Man I miss them. Unfortunately I had to come to this site and see pictures of the cook out. I hate you.
