Video: Crayfish are active – how to catch and cook this weekend
Crayfish are active this time of the year in Arizona and this is the perfect, long weekend to have family and friends fish — as well as catch and cook these nonnative, tasty freshwater lobsters.
A few tips:
- Crayfish are more active at night — this one of the best times to catch them out foraging;
- Crayfish hide under rocks, submerged branches, thick mats of algae or aquatic vegetation, and in mud burrows;
- With an Arizona fishing license, you can catch and keep an unlimited number of crayfish every day of the year — but you cannot move them live from the place you caught them (unless you are in the Yuma area).
