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
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.

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.
