Wordless Wednesday - Catching crawdads at Lake Tahoe, CA

By
Real Estate Agent with Chris Alston (Keller Williams Realty, Cupertino California) 01338415

Never would have thought you could catch crawdads at the lake...  I was up in north shore this weekend with my son, and started moving rocks and there they were!  I never would have thought of catching them in such large lakes...  The area was shallow, and warmer.  lots of shad in the water, and lots of rocks, big and small.

Crawdad

I saw many, and grabbed this one, so I could show my son, and take a great picture for the photo album.  Then I thought, it would be fun to share!

As long as you grab them from the "butt" they can't claw you...  Then again, if they did claw you, it really doesn't hurt!

Great shot! I haven't seen a live crawdad since I was a youngster in Kentucky. ps_I thought crawdads only lived in creeks. At least that's where we found them in KY.

Liz and Bill - I caught a bigger one, but didn't have the camera, so I had to get back to the shore and find a new one.  :)

Vickie - Strange huh?  It was a barren looking floor of that part of the lake!

Looks like a large bug that we have in the southern parts of the state.

Yulk, I'm not touching that thing or even getting near it, looks like something to put under my shoe no, I take that back not my shoe.  I don't like creepy crawly things.  What would you do with the crustacean anyway, eat it?  I'm sorry just thoughts going through my head.

Great picture, I know your son had fun.  Would they make good fish bait?
