Live Crawfish Today?
 
Anyone know of place that has live crawfish today between Galveston and downtown Houston? I have called all my local places in Kemah and Texas City and they are out.

Fyi, I'm looking for about 20lbs.

With as cold as it has been I bet its later than that. Well if they do have some by then they will be $$$

Down here in Galveston county some places had them this morning but sold out quick. The places I talked to said they would have them again next weekend. Don't know what they were asking per lb though.

Boyd's has had a few sacks occasionally. This weather isn't going to help out though.

You will pay $150 for 20 lbs if you can find them. Restaurants aren't even boiling as wholesale price from the farmer is $5/lb. Retail to the consumer is $7-$8 / lb. Temps will be in the 20's next week as I don't expect crawfish anytime soon

farming is all about Mother Nature

I know a guy who fishes a 5 acre pond, and ran his traps Wednesday and caught 19 lbs of live crawfish (1/2 sack). They boiled and peeled the tails and made an etoufee. Bait, diesel, and labor ended up costing him $175 for basically 3 lbs of crawfish tails :(

Had this plate Thursday night at Zydeclawa in Atascocita. Cold probably shut them down a few days. They have them today from Thursday's delivery. Might call them about live ? They were $7.95 lb boiled.

Now you all done gone and done it. We're doing a shrimp boil tonight simply because of this thread. If I can find some dungeness crab I'll chuck them in the boil also. Headed to HEB!


God bless and happy hunting.
Richard.
