Crawdads Wed, 04/9/03 3:58 PM (permalink)
I was in Alexandria, Louisiana a couple of weeks ago and it was in the middle of crawdad season. I did not know they had one but apparently the local farmers double crop their fields alternating between rice and crawdads. I passed several of the fields driving up from Lafayette and observed people in the middle of theise fields walking in the water and pulling a boat. They were apparently harvesting the crawdads. Later on that evening at a restaurant on the lake right out of Alexandria, I had a huge plate of these varmits. Fortunately I had a guide with me that gave me some instructions on how to suck the head and eat the tail or vice versa. I never did get the real hang of it and about halfway through, I got tired and ordered a couple of doubles. Ended that frustration
