Soft shell crabs to go

My daughter is driving home from New Orleans Saturday May 9th. Can anyone recommend a store where she can buy live soft shell crabs on the way from Tulane to Nashville? Thanks for the help.

  1. if she is driving back onI10 West to I-55 North, she can go to The Crab Trap at Peavine Rd., but call first as soft shells have been in short supply.

    1. I have recently seen soft shells at many of the areas seafood markets. Have her call around to the local live seafood places. I know the market in Mandeville has them and BJs in Hammond, right off the interstate. These are just the few I have been to this week

      1. I always see them at KJean Seafood in Mid-City.
