Anyone interested in knowing about these and have you wondered what is so good about eating them boiled. It is a great southern tradition and until you've tried it, you can't knock it. Wonder how they are caught? Do you wonder how we cook them up? Do you wonder what's the big party about all the time with them and hot sauce?

I used to spend many childhood hours catching crayfish, or crawdads as we called them, to feed to my dog. My family did not eat them, but the dog would chomp down as many as 100 a day if I caught that many. I threw them toward him one at a time and he would jump forward and catch them mid-air. Nothing else got that dog so excited. As an adult I was feeling nostalgic about the crawdads when I saw them for sale at a seafood festival. I didn't buy any because they came in a huge bag, and I was not sure I'd like them. Later, I got a chance to try them at one of the Las Vegas buffets. I thought they were awful and never wish to try them again! Crab, on the other hand, is one of my favorite foods.

Las Vegas probably had those chinese imported crawfish. You have to try them imported from Louisiana. At a seafood festival i would think would be the best.

I think you are right because the ones we saw at the seafood festival looked more like the ones I used to catch, and the ones at the buffet were much smaller. Thanks for your advice. I may yet try them again one day!
