Folks in the crawfish industry are looking forward to a great season this year. It is off to a slow start, but things are expected to pick up in the next few weeks.

LSU Ag Center Crawfish Specialist Mark Shirley says we should see a strong peak crawfish season in March and April of this year.

More places around town are getting crawfish as the temps warm up a little bit. But you will find mudbugs still on the small side and a bit expensive.

Since we are at the beginning of the 2021 season, you can expect the prices to be high for at least a month. In checking the prices this week, I found most places kept the same price. But a few places have bumped the price up a bit. I did not find anyone with lower prices yet.

One note about getting your crawfish. Be sure you call ahead to make sure they still have a supply. Some of the spots are selling out quickly.
