Fill up a cooler an inch or two with cold water. Throw in crawdads and a few leaves of iceberg or romaine lettuce. They eat the lettuce which purges the mud, liver and other junk they've been eating. Let them sit for 24 to 48 hours. Keep the cooler shaded and change the water once to twice a day. Remove any rotting lettuce. The cleaner the water, the cleaner you crawdads will tasteThanks for the tips guys, it never occured to me to use beef or chicken liver. Unfortunately I don't know a place yet that I feel comfortable leaving them overnight. I was planning on putting them in a couple local lakes, and just having them out all day while I fish.. How do you purge them with lettuce? I've yet to hear about that method..
