Crawfish prices have dropped considerably since I checked prices a week ago, especially for boiled crawfish. I check these prices each week by calling all of these places to see what they are charging.

The cheapest price we could find on March 22nd for live crawfish is at Beaux's Sport and Goods in Haughton where the price has finally dropped below $3 a pound at $2.95. Several local spots are selling live crawfish for $3.50 a pound.

Prices for boiled crawfish are now closing in on the $5 dollar mark. Farmer's Seafood has now dropped the price to for boiled bugs to $5.39 a pound. Larry P's Boiling Pot is charging $5.50 a pound this week.

Remember these prices will continue to fall as temps continue to rise, so I expect the price for boiled crawfish to dip below $5 in the next couple of weeks.

Best advice to crawfish connoisseurs is to call first before heading off to buy some bugs.  You want to make sure these hot spots are not sold out.
