Hi everyone!

Alrighty, here we go!

Did you have a good weekend? I hope so.

Well, look forward to this coming weekend because it’s a Special one!

Read below and see all the news of the upcoming weeks ahead of us.

Valentine’s Day 2-14-15 (Saturday)

***This is very important!!  Valentine’s Day is a major Lobster Day and King Crab Day for many of our customers, plus Crawfish Season is here and that’s going to make it a very busy Valentine’s weekend coming up.

We really want everyone to think about what you will be needing for this weekend and to please call in and reserve your orders as soon as you know what you will be needing.

We do not want to disappoint anyone, not just anytime but on a day that you truly don’t want to mess up. We’ve seen it happen in the past and it can get pretty crazy looking for Live Lobsters at 6:00 P.M on Valentine’s evening when dinner should be on the table.That’s why it’s so important to reserve your order.

Because Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday this year, seafood deliveries are very limited.

Live Lobsters of any size are available for our customers for Saturday as long as you call to reserve them in advance. We will accumulate all of our reserved orders and order your Live Lobster’s on Friday afternoon for Saturday morning delivery.

LIVE LOBSTERS:

Valentine week prices:

Live Lobsters: 1 1/2 lb :          16.69 lb

                          2 lb and over: 17.69 lb

The Supplier for our Live Lobsters will deliver to us by 12:00 on Valentine’s Day(Saturday morning).

If you wait until Valentine’s Day(Saturday) to order, we cannot guarantee that we can receive them in a timely manner to meet your schedule.

Afternoon orders will arrive around 5:00 P.M.

Any order placed on Saturday for Live Lobsters on Valentine’s Day will have to be ordered by 11:00 A.M. on Saturday morning for late afternoon pickup.

LOBSTER TAILS:

We always have plenty of Lobster Tails in stock!

We stock three types of frozen lobster tails:

Caribbean Warm Water Tails: any size 25.00 lb(up to 1 1/4 lbs)

Maine Tails: any size 35.00 lb

Austrailian Tails:  60.00 lb (12-14 oz only)

KING CRAB LEGS: 24.99 LB (AVERAGE SIZE: 1/2-3/4 LB PER LEG)

SNOW CRAB LEGS: 11.99 LB (LARGEST AVAILABLE)

It’s always important to order your Seafood in advance so we can make sure we have enough for everyone. Especially on Special occasions.

Concerning Crawfish:

The weather in the beginning of this week looks really nice but as we get closer to Thursday, the temperatures in South Louisiana are showing temperatures in the low to mid 30’s for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Due to the change in weather at the end of the week in South Louisiana, the Crawfish Suppliers have already increased their prices. They do this every year during this time of the season whether the weather is good or bad, whether the catch is up or down. This is something that we have no control of and they know it down there. The catch is down though and because the temperatures are also down at the end of the week, the farmers increase the cost to cover the low catch and also to take advantage of a special day knowing that there is a major demand for this product.

The same goes for Lobster Suppliers. They all seem to take advantage of the demand and special day.

Please understand that we have no control of these price increases.

We only pass on the our cost increase and I absorb all that I can on cost.

Suppliers down there do not like my complaining. They know I fight for the best prices and they just don’t care. The farmer’s are who I am talking about.

CRAWFISH UPDATE:

WEEK OF: 2-10-15 THRU 2–16-15

**PRICE: 5.00 LB FOR FULL SACKS OF CRAWFISH.**

Prices are still up there due to the early time of the season.

Your cost this weekend is 5.00 a lb. full sacks only and if you are wanting any, you will need to place a confirmed order by 12:00 on Friday this week. This week’s orders are for Friday,Saturday and Sunday pick up only.

Starting next week, Tuesday and Thursday deliveries will be added to the delivery schedule every week.

As weather starts to get warmer, crawfish will become more plentiful and equipment will be set up to grade the sizes of the crawfish.

As of today, the crawfish are not graded and are only what they pull from the water.

FAT TUESDAY(MARDI GRAS) 2-17-15

ASH WEDNESDAY: 2-18-15

For all of you out there that Party down on Fat Tuesday, we get our Crawfish delivered to us that morning so please remember to reserve your order as early as you can to be assured that you will be getting your order for your party.

Plenty of time to prepare.

EASTER WEEKEND: GOOD FRIDAY, PASSOVER AND EASTER SUNDAY(4-3 THRU 4-5-15)

Plenty of time to prepare.

If you are needing crawfish this weekend, order as soon a possible to protect your order. If you wait until the last minute, you might not be getting your crawfish. Usually due to cold weather.
