See tpet's post about craws reminded me of a post I made a few months ago. Doesn't anyone know of a (the) technique to make the hard shelled crayfish we catch in local rivers shed their shell? I met an old man years ago fishing that had a bucket of soft shell crayfish and he said he knows a way to induce molting. Of course he wouldn't tell me how it's done. Soft craws are too expensive to buy for Erie fishing. http://aquanic.org/publicat/usda_rac/tr/ncrac/tb112.pdf eyestalk ablation???
