CRAWFISH UPDATE FOR WEEK OF: 4-14 THRU 4-19-14

The crawfish last week were some of the best quality we have had this whole season. Good size, no molting and really lively.
We received our calls from the farmers this morning and all of the suppliers went up on their prices by .50 a lb.
Mostly because they do this every year because they know there is a demand for crawfish for Easter so they stick it to us. I am not a happy person this week due to them doing this but we also have to take into consideration that this cold weather snap that we are experiencing this week will cause a problem with the catch. The weather at the Crawfish farms this week starting today on Monday was 43 degrees this morning.
Tuesday will be in the 30’s. This doesn’t help much because it usually means the crawfish will molt due to the change in water temperatures. Something we can’t do anything about.
As I have tried to explain to so many of my customers, is that when the weather is cold at the farms, the crawfish do not come up to feed. If they do not come up to feed, they can’t catch what we need.
Being that’s it’s Good Friday this week and Easter, the demand is so overwhelming that trying to catch enough crawfish to feed every person who loves crawfish this weekend will be a tough one. Especially when you have to consider how many people in Louisiana depend on Crawfish as their main staple this coming weekend.

Here we go: SUPPLIERS WENT UP .50 A LB…. I AM ABSORBING .25 AND WILL ONLY PASS ON .25 TO MY CUSTOMERS.
CRAWFISH PRICES: 4.00 LB FOR FULL SACKS.(FULL SACKS ONLY)
WE WILL NOT BE COOKING CRAWFISH THIS SATURDAY DUE TO THE PRICE INCREASE.
WE WILL NOT BE SELLING PARTIAL SACKS THIS SATURDAY.
PLEASE CALL THE STORE TO RESERVE YOUR ORDER: 972-424-3474

PLEASE PLACE YOUR AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. WE CANNOT PROMISE YOU THAT YOU WILL GET YOUR CRAWFISH IF YOU WAIT UNTIL FRIDAY TO PLACE YOUR ORDER.

FROM MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, EASTER WEEKEND USUALLY HAS A SHORTAGE OF CRAWFISH.
WE DO NOT SELL GROCERY STORE QUALITY CRAWFISH.
TAKE CARE AND THANKS!
