This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

What started out as a father son activity for Mike Burrell and his son, Jake to go crabbing in the Pacific Northwest has now turned into a successful business known as Crayster that is shopping their genius product all over the United States. Jake loved crabbing so much, but since they live in Idaho, they did research and experiments to come up with a crawfish trap, as a form of crabbing they could do close to home. Their crawfishing trap is so good, they launched their company Crayster after being awarded a patent, which is quite a distinction since only 10 percent are awarded.

Crayster offers crawfish traps and gear through their website, You choose the trap size and style, and within a single evening, you can catch pounds of crawfish. Crawfish are so prolific they’re considered an invasive species so currently there’s no danger of overfishing. Mike invites his customers to become field researchers and send in pictures of their catches, especially the really big crawfish, for prizes and bragging rights that include photos published on the website.

In case you’re not sure how to prepare it, Crayster has a section of the website dedicated to crawfish cooking with recipes and YouTube videos Mike and his team and customers have created.
