This last week I went crayfish collecting for work in Mississippi. It was a lot of fun! Here are some pictures:

Eating a crawfish. It was a little gross to rip apart their tail from their head.
Our first hole! We dug up to my shoulder but no crayfish, it was too dry
This mud was much more wet. Black mud clear up my arm. Keith got one Fallicambarus but no one else got one.

Jesse loved his Po Boy...until it came back to haunt him.
Ben looking for crawfish
Me looking for crawfish in the swamp. We luckily didn't see any gators :)
On Wednesday, the largest tornado storm in 4 decades hit the South. We think we missed several tornadoes by 30 minutes or an hour. It was really sad to see the devastation. This used to be a house.
A huge tree that was uprooted. We passed an entire forest that had been uprooted.
Heather and her form 1 male she dug in the hard clay for!
Looking for more crawfish. Isn't it pretty?
Seeing what species the crayfish is
We went to this awesome BBQ restaurant made from junk. It was DELICIOUS! Check out their story here.
Ben and I at The Shed. Oh man, that food was seriously SO good.
The last thing we did was go to the beach! That's Ben and I swimming out there. We saw a bunch of sting rays, they were cool!

All in all it was an awesome trip! We were really lucky to avoid the tornadoes and we got the crayfish we were after. It was tons of fun! :)
