I live in Central Pennsylvania and I'm interested in trying boiled crawfish. there are tons of them in the streams around here, but they don't look like the red ones that are in most of the pictures found online of people boiling crawfish. These ones are usually gray or brown. Can I catch these crawfish and try those, or do you need to boil a specific type? thanks in advance!
Crayfish are grey and brown in the wild. be sure and purge them. You do that by placing them in a tub with salt and water. that makes them clean their system and rinse them and then throw them in boiling water with crab and shrimp boil. They will turn red.
