Went fishing this morning and set a crayfish trap

Went out fishing this morning, had several hits on a plastic lizard, but could not hook up to save my life. Met a guy out there that had a bucket of crayfish, I talked to him for a few minutes. I ended up going back and grabbing my minnow trap, have it baited with bacon, we'll see if it works, I hope it does, I like crayfish and the lake is only a few miles down the road, would be nice to have crayfish anytime I feel like.

    Caught my first batch of crawfish at about three years of age using bacon, string, and stick. They love it. Good luck!
    What's next?

    Liver on a string works great

    About any meat will work.
    When I was a kid, I tried setting jugs in our pond for turtles using old pork for bait.
    Never could catch a turtle and the bait was always gone.
    I set them one day and on a whim, on the way back across the pond I pulled one of the jugs up.
    There were crawdads on the bait.
    I quit trying for turtles after that. [:D]
