There's nothing like a big tray of hot boiled crawfish to kick off a weekend. But what are prices like in Shreveport-Bossier?

I called around to check prices and found it's still about $4.99 a pound for boiled bugs. I ordered a ten pound sack from Crawfish Tyme and they were ready to go when I arrived. These were very tasty, not too spicy. It's always a huge disappointment to dig into some crawfish and someone got a little too aggressive with the seasoning. That didn't happen with these.

They are still a little small, but it's early in the season. My 19-year-old son hasn't had any crawfish this season, so we splurged and snapped up a ten pound bag of the bugs.

Here are the latest prices in the area:
