How big do these get? I just caught a 4" Orconectes virilis(I think). With the claws she's 6".

Try looking up some fact sheets about them they are all over the internet especailly invasive species related topics.

Total length really isn't an appropriate method of measuring crayfish though because claws are so easily lost. The most typical measurement is carapace length (tip of rostrum to end of carapace).
