crawfish season comes earlier and earlier

FWIW, some pond-raised crawfish are starting to hit the market. This weekend, boiled were selling for $5/pound way out in the country.

  1. Saw a sign for boiled crawfish at a seafood place on Dowman Rd. I can't remember the price, maybe 3.59 or 4.50 a lb.

    1. Today in St. Martinville, I saw a sign for boiled crawfish for $2.99/lb. I don't think that is bad for this early in the season.

          This is wonderful news! Crawfish is my favorite seafood. Never get enough of them.

      1. Oops. That was LA Pride Seafood 4418 Downman Rd

        1. A few vendors at the "shrimp lot" in Westwego had live crawfish, but I can't remember the price. I saw people eating boiled crawfish at Po-Boy Fest too.
