Had them for the first time in France. They were fairly small craws and all you did was break off the tail and scarf it down, outer shell and all. Made for great roughage. I started catching them while camping with the family and then began keeping the larger craws also. The larger tails were great when you dipped them in garlic flavored butter after a brief boiling. I really miss those great camping trips.:)

They're actually pretty good. I remember going camping a few years ago and a friend caught some and said try these, and I tried them and they were pretty tasty.

The traditional cajun way of eating them is to boil them whole and be sure to suck the juice and crud out of the head as well as eat the tail. yuck I dont care for them myself but a lot of people do.

been eating them for a while...........

hard to find around here in large enough quanities for a boil, but you can get them fed ex to your house live from LA and MISS....

we always grab a cooler full (already cooked usually when hunting in Arkansas.)


There used to be a place in Berea (Bayou Cafe) that served them several ways.....


no different than spicy shrimp as far as the tail goes, but the juice from the boil is what makes them....that's why you suck the head.

Just anchor a minnow trap baited with a dead bluegill in a creek with a rocky bottom. I guarantee that thing will be full the next morning. We used to do it all the time.

I don't know what the pollution hazards are for eating them, though.

I was wondering the same thing. Ten Mile Creek and the Maumee river come to mind as good places to catch them but I don't think I would want to eat them from there. Maybe some of the resivoirs???
