Rick that is one great looking meal!! I just wish I could get racy to eat mud bugs. They are a lot of work but man oh man are they worth the effort.

Looks like a great meal. Never had them but willing to try if prepared by someone knowing how. I believe hard to find in PA.

You can catch them in almost every stream or river in PA.

That looks great! Unfortunately for me that whole meal is a no go...Type 2 diabetic so no bread and severe allergy to shellfish so no Crayfish...booo

I love those things Rick!
Can’t get them fresh around here, so every once in a while I buy frozen, but they are not the same as fresh!

I used to catch a lot of them in SouthEast PA, but none were worthy of human consumption. However they make Awesome Bass Bait!!!

I actually did not know they were in PA...going to have to search for some...maybe keep them in one of my fish tanks. Besides dropping a trap, how else can you catch them?

Looks good!
When I was a kid, I'd fish the banks of some small streams near my grandparent's house in Oregon. Usually I'd have a sandwich packed with me sitting on the sand, and those darn things would crawl out of the water after my sandwich! I still can't figure out how they could smell it underwater?
