$6/pound cooked... $4 live. Still high, but they’re pretty good size for this early in the season.

Default crawfish prices/size?

Ancelets over in Port Arthur had big mediums at $2.75 a few weeks back.



You can get at $3.50 pretty regular



If you head that way..... find Paul Ancelet and tell him Kevin Meadows says howdy

Went to Larry's in Groves yesterday and they were $5 per pound cooked, and I'd call them Medium sized.

In SWLA, Select size crawfish are being sold directly to the restaurants. Restaurant pricing is around $18 for 3 lbs. boiled. Field run with small to medium size are being sold to the consumer at $2.50 / per lb. live, $4-$5 / per lb. boiled.

Hey bud where did you pick those up if you donít mind me asking. In SETX as well and we boiled last weekend. Pretty good size for this early, but not sure they averaged medium as a whole. Feel free to Pm if you want.
