Crayfish Patterns

Original Post August 7, 2018 --There are great numbers of crayfish exposed to the bass along the cobblestones in the river by the banks.  A good technique is to wade down the river 40 feet out from the bank and cast a Murray's Crayfish size 6 or Singer Crayfish size 6 in tight against the bank and swim it out 10 feet by stripping it 4 inches every 6 seconds as you work down the river.
