Then everyone got a turn to ride in the boat while the crawfish was being collected. The kids got to ride in the back of the truck as we rode around the lake to each side to pick up those that had just ridden. I think they enjoyed this just as much since most of them have never gotten to ride in the back of a truck.
The food that they put in the traps, and when they collect the crawfish they immediately go in the bags to sell.
He would pull up the trap, dump it onto the table, put a new piece of food in, push the trap back into the ground before he picked up the next one. He would also push the crawfish down into the bags, throw out any extra food, and throw out crawfish that were too small.
He steered the boat with his feet.

Chantelle's uncle showing Cameron how the crawfish crawl in and get trapped.
These were some blue crawfish that he caught that day which are rare but they didn't know how they become blue.

The ponds were surrounded by cattle fields.
After we finished touring the farm, we drove to Chantelle's parents' house for a crawfish boil on False River.
Time to eat!
