Since I am getting some things ready for when it warms up a bit to take my kid crawfishing (which will hold us over nicely until it is time to start crabbing again) I got into this discussion with some of the folks I work with.

Fish heads, beef melt, and hot dogs all came up. I am not running enough traps to mess with fish cake, so I may just go and catch me a couple of mudcats and use them as bait, unless one of the older swamp gurus around here has a better idea? May go to Sheburne, or possibly down at a place in Tangipahoa that a friend of mine has recommended. Just waiting for things to warm back up after this little cold snap we are having. Still, probably going to go to the Tickfaw State Park this weekend for a bit of camping just because.

I like melt and Beef/Pork kidneys. I just run nets and I am not sure how they will hold up in traps. Are the bugs all ready starting to run?

Not that I know of, but I am going to try to get out once we have ten or so days up in the 70s, and just see what I can catch. I am going to keep track of the size and number, water salinity, clarity, etc. My inner biologist is dying to come out after being cooped up all nasty winter.

Would pork neck bones work as bait? They are pretty cheap.

You can catch crawfish on almost any cut fish, oilier the better.  Not picky eater at all, hot dogs, cut up potato, corn on the cab.  The only thing that I've used that crawfish didn't eat was frog heads and fresh water drum.
