Where can I buy live crawfish in the Bay Area? I'm looking for a place close to San Jose as much as possible.

    my friend buys a live crawfish every year for kraftskiva, and after researching the issue, the only __reliable__ source seems to be Bob's Bait Shop in Isleton:

    Not really the bay area. But close.

    I've seen them at Lion Market in San Jose and 99 Ranch, but not consistently.

      Have also seen them at Manila Market on Mission, but I don't know if they always have them.
