I imagine the meat is probably good but I can't get past people sucking on their heads. What is that ?

I have taken written advice about sucking on the head. I've done it and I kept doing it, till I eventually get a bad one and give up. Had I looked it up on youtube, I would have realized that by head people mean torax. I've been sucking on the eyeball end all along spank

Yeah i had the yabbie net in the creek out the front yesterday to demo them... usually inly get ine ir two but none yesterday.

Lobster down here dont have the big claws.

Yabbies have two even sized claws but we also have marron in some regions (not here)...and freshwater crays up in the swamps.

Its surreal dri ing at night and seeing a flourescent glow in the distance while a yabbie crosses the road


If it's the truth....it can handle the pressure !!!

Shannow, your average everyday Yabby puts our everyday average crawfish to shame. The crawfish I was eating (in the pics) are that big because they are "SELECTED BIG" out of all the crawfish caught. They always bring top $$$$$.
For instance, select crawfish are selling for an average of $3 lb. Non select (medium-large) get anywhere from $1.25-$2.39 lb. But remember, we still have 2 months left of crawfish season. The farmers are going to try and get every penny they can.
When I was younger (15, 16, 17 years old) we were only getting .20 cents to .25 cents a lb. The vendors were turning around and selling them for .70-.85 cents a lb.
I know people make a living by crawfishing, but the days of buying them for near nothing are long gone.
BTW Shannow, do y'all eat your Yabbies like we eat our crawfish here? AKA-Sucking the heads.

I wish I could get live crawfish around here for a decent price. To make matters worst it's now tough to get Apalachicola oysters. frown

We even have them here in ponds in the Nevada high desert. We call them crawdads.

Not a big fan of lobster myself. I prefer king crab legs.

Pinch some tail and suck some heads! Delicious with hot sauce and melted butter...and of course a good supply of beer!

In my younger years doved for/ ate main lobster and you could buy lobster bodies for a quarter at the lobster shacks. Now it's just too expensive. Here in Northern NM we can jig for crawdads in the Rio Grande and if you're patient, can get a few lbs in an afternoon. Hotdog chunks work best.

Lobster used to be considered junk...there were rules for prison inmates and service staff how many times per week you were limited to service it...
