    If you use dead crayfish put them on a jig

    If you want to catch the bigger fish, use the crayfish you catch. But check regs, some places it has to be dead.

    Have, not infrequently, found 3 to 6 inch, still digesting craws in big browns.

    I agree with everyone above. There are big meat portions in both claws and the largest meat portion lies in the but. You can attempt to get a big guy and just hook the crawdad through the tail, or you can remove the claws and break at the joint, exposing that meat to fish for littler guys. Then simply fish the remainder of the crawdad without the claws.

    Excellent bait for smallies AND sometimes big trout. Just hook it through the tail and get ready to start reeling!

    You bet, hook him through the meat of the tail and keep him off the bottom and moving. They love to crawl back into the rock/weeds and hide.

    Try it once and you'll wish you had a bucket full.

    Oh, yes! But get enough of them and just cook them up for dinner! Excellent eating.
