    If yo have a couple of helpers, here is a way to get plenty of crawdads for bait, really fast.

    Find a place in the creek or small river where the current is moving pretty good, and there are plenty of rocks, and the water is about knee deep. Two guys hold the sein net in the current stretched out fairly tight. The third guy takes the worm fork (patatoe fork to some), and turns over rocks in front of the net, and stirs up the bottom good. After a few minutes, the guys holding the net lift it up, and it should be full of crawdads, minnow, chubs, and who knows what else. The fork guy walks along the net with the bucket and fills er up! If you are in a good spot, you only need to do this one or two times and you have more than enough bait for the evening.

    I call this the "fatboy" seining method! If you are holding the net, you hardly even have to put your beer down!:cool2:

    Pez, it works great, the crawdads, and whatever else may be hiding under the rocks, get swept up in the current, and caught in the net.

    Sure beats dragging the net against the current, fighting all the rocks and brush! Especially for an old fat boy!
