IT DON'T MATTER WHAT IT'S CALLED IT IS, FER SURE, FINE EATIN'
Agreed. They taste for a lack of a better word muddy and dull to me. Ive eaten them quite a few times but just can’t get to enjoying them. That’s ok, Atlantic lobsters fresh out of the ocean are about 3 miles away from me.I love all sea food and especially shrimp and lobster but have never been able to get attached to mud bugs....
@RoninPA mentioned the invasive species so I was curious about them.I can’t tell you because I don’t know what a signal is but I’ve only eaten them in Florida and S Carolina
I don't understand. you can't transport live crawfish...Oh wait, I just got it. They don't want the signal crawfish to be transported and allowed to populate a new area?The signal crawfish is taking over in some places. Probably why you cant transport live ones in Iowa.
