More crawdad fishing in Wildhorse Creek, Davis, CA

Here are some pictures from another night of crawdad fishing. We have been going for some walks along the Wildhorse Ag. Buffer trail at night and keep coming upon a few families fishing for crawdads in the creek. This night, they also had one of their cats with them. It was quite entertaining, with the kids lowering McNuggets into the creek and reeling up crawdads in seconds. Then they dumped out the bucket and watched them crawl back to the creek.
