Keep healthy crayfish for fishing

Anna River Monising Bay, Munising Michigan USA
Crayfish are an excellent bait item for fishing Keep your crayfish healthy, active ,alive & attractive.  And, what would you say is the best method of embedding a hook into a crayfish?  Crayfish are a most desirable meal ticket in the U.P.  Here's a handy method of preserving them and gaining the best presentation.    

Surprisingly, we found that most all fishermen embed their hook into either the tail area, or within the chest cavity, when using crayfish as a bait presentation.  We were also surprised to learn many U.P. fishermen didnít even use crayfish at all! Crayfish are an ideal U.P. bait item in many cases... especially when fishing around rocks, gravel or artificially constructed spawning beds or fish shelters.

Most game fish prefer their quarry at least somewhat active. The livelier your bait is, the better. Throughout the duration your bait is on your hook, it should always appear healthy, lively and attracting to fish.

Crayfish - AstacidaeThe best method for keeping crayfish alive on your hook can be achieved by using a small number 6 or 8 bait holder hook.  Embed the eye of the hook underneath the lower tail, just penetrating the muscle. 

This method will give you an attractive looking bait much longer and also increase your effectiveness when setting the hook!  We've used this method time and time again.  It's the perfect solution to maintaining an active and attractive bait item in rocks, gravel and sand.
