Crawfish bait

What are ya'll using for bait when ya'll are crawfishing? Thinking of setting a couple of traps in the marsh at the duck lease. What do you look for in an area as far as where to put them?

either use fish heads or go to the local feed store and get the big crawfish bait pellets- real cheap

Marsh?

Never heard of crawfishing in brackish water. Do you catch any in the marsh? I'd give it a try if there was a chance. My duck lease has a decent amount of crabs and a few shrimp when the tides come in hard, but never saw a crawfish come out of the ponds.
