    Looking for anywhere near me that I could buy live craws for bait. I am on the cary/durham line by panther creek high. Thank you!

    I don't believe it is legal to sell them for bait... You have to catch your own. If I recall correctly, this is because people using bait introduced non-native crayfish to nc, and threw off some ecosystems

    After all is said and done.... A heck of a lot more will be said than done

    You can buy wire crawfish traps from most fishing equipment stores or websites. Toss in some chicken scraps or open a can of cat/dog food, lay the trap in the lake preferably near some rock ballast, and go home. Come back tomorrow and you won't need to buy craws. If the fish aren't biting, you can always eat the craws....win, win....
