CRAWFISH UPDATE: 3-20-14
Well, I can finally report to everyone that the Crawfish season is finally actually happening. With Mardi Gras recently and with all the cold weather we’ve had, we have been patiently waiting for the suppliers to let us know that we can start letting everyone know that Crawfish are available. The weather this week in southern Louisiana will be the warmest they have had all season. This will bring the crawfish up to feed, it’ll also cause them to molt(which means lose their shell so they can gorge on food so they can get larger).
We want everyone to understand that the weather can really change things on the crawfish farms so to be able to tell everyone that we can get your crawfish we want you to know that there are occasions that the catch can be down due to water temps or even rainy weather.
We ask that you call our store and reserve your crawfish. We can receive crawfish Six days a week and there are times that are suppliers will deliver on Mondays. We ask that everyone please reserve your order as soon as you know that you are going to want them. We will record your order in our weekly order book and place your order the day before you pick it up. It’s very important that you call in to reserve your order. When the season is really going strong we bring in extra crawfish for the weekends for those who don’t reserve their order.
Reserving your order will confirm that you will being getting your crawfish.
