I currently have 5 pistols that I know of. Seen them on different rocks one night while feeding. When you get a couple of them clicking away it sounds weird.

I would try the coke bottle trick. But do something different. Cut the end of the bottle off just when it gets as large as it gets. Then spin it around and push it back down into the bottle. This way the shrimp and be guided right into the bottle. But will have a very difficult time getting out.

This is going to sound really redneck but me and a buddy used to catch crawdads like this all the time when we were kids. It works well.,

Plastic. You don't want ot mess with cutting glass bottles. Cut the end off, like our West Virginia friend said.

BTW, when I lived in Virginia, we called them "crawdads", too!!! Brings back memories.

Here in NY, it's "crayfish".

Thats what your supposed to call them probably. We always called them crawdads. I am not a "redneck" per say but I have my moments. Some of my friends are full blown WV hillbillies though.
