Seriously, if you can find a place to do it, flipping rocks in the river and catching them is super fun. It can be hard to get enough to feed a party, though.

I agree with Geddy. Crawdads are way too much work for too little payoff.

Peeling and deveining them is one of those acquired tastes.

It's much, much, much easier than peeling and deveining raw shrimp. It's much, much easier than peeling raw shrimp. It's much easier than peeling and deveining cooked shrimp. And...slightly harder than peeling previously deveined, cooked shrimp.

I know that sounds made up and I used to think so as well, but crawfish are incredibly easy to....disassemble. Rotate the head off the body, pull the first two rungs (closest to the newly exposed end) of the shell away from the abdomen area and rotate to separate it completely from the rest of the shell, squeeze the tail to get the meat out, and grab the little convenient tab attached to the vein and rip. Takes maybe 5 seconds. Here's a bunch of coonassess doing it in different ways just to counter the argument it's too much work. And, if coonasses can do it....
