To be honest with you bud that's my first crayfish setup . Not really sure if it's crayfish . That's what it looks to me . Using the Steve's because thats the only trap that looks close to working on the truck .

I've dug them out...which is a chore !

Another trick... if you can see them...is to use a TOMCAT glue trap, cut into 1" wide strips and folded over and tied to a long stick, so the sticky part is exposed on both sides.

When you can see the pinchers just down in the hole, you move very slowly and 'tease' the crawdad with a small twig, getting it to 'pinch' the twig...once you've got it trying to grab the twig,
you then insert the glue strip and let it grab that...once stuck, it will grab with the other pincher, getting stuck even more.
You then , 'fish' it out.

Do NOT remove the plastic cover until you get the 'trap' made...or you'll regret it !

Solving the problem is not why I have Been hired . The neighbor hood wish is to see what it is . Sure the lady is tiered of these hole in her yard . She thinks its a snake . I told her snakes don't dig holes . Looks just like crayfish down on the river bank to me . the Steve's trap mite be to much power or set back to fare . I need to just head over that way . Got to go meet with the add lady first to see what she's got cooking . Wish she wasn't married . Very hard working gal ,I need one like that . Boys need a mom in there life to .

very common for more than one crayfish to inhabit tunnel system. let the tunnel sit for half hour, then fish around for the others.
I have dug hundreds of crayfish tunnels up over the years...

There was just one . I took him down to a local marsh . Crayfish like that has my respect . I hope he breeds more just like him . I guess come fall snakes and frogs will use them holes to den up for the winter , sometimes all three will be down the same hole . Still cant see how a crayfish can dig in that clay like that . Next time I'll just go to digging .

while digging down, did you take the time to "feel" the main tunnel? most times, it branches outwards, having multiple arm tunnels off of the main one.
