Crawfish in December

Headed down to NOLA this weekend for the Saints/Cowboys game. Does anybody know any place that might have crawfish this time of year?

      Are crawfish any good this time of year?

        They are small and expensive. Tastewise they are good.

          I've seen them running about $11/lb, someplaces even higher. They really ought to let them live until spring

            Holy moly, that's expensive. Pond-raised, boiled are about $4-5/lb in my neck of the woods right now.

              K Jean had them for $4-$5 a pound yesterday

                A friend in BR told me this morning he paid $10.99 at Tony's but they were a pound..sometimes they cheat and you get those damned 12 oz things.

                  Gentilly area, around $4.50 a pound....

      2. Jeff Hwy near Haydel's, they are selling them for $ 2.49 lb.
