Hi everyone!

I hope everyone enjoyed this past Memorial weekend. We sure enjoyed seeing all of you at the store. Sorry I wasn’t there the whole weekend, I had some medical issues and my guys at the store took care of the store while I was out.

The crawfish and the Copper River Sockeye Salmon was a big hit this weekend along with a lot of other seafood but those two items were really big.

Father’s Day is coming up on June 21st and we look forward to that weekend because many of you love to cook out on that weekend. We should have about anything anyone needs for this occasion and when it comes to cooking outside, our Copper River Salmon is just unbelievable. And I promise, if you have not tried any you will be in for a really nice surprise.

We’ll still have Crawfish and we’ll still have the Wild Alaskan Sockeye from the Copper River out of Alaska.

So get on board before the season ends for both of these great seafood items and start planning ahead.

UPDATE: COPPER RIVER SOCKEYE: ****23.99 a lb****

Our fisherman are fishing a 36 hour opening this week and we expect our next shipment to arrive on Friday. We’ll have Copper River Sockeye available for everyone

starting again on Friday.

Our fisherman had another opening starting this past Monday and this opening allowed them to fish for 36 hours. Their catch was delivered to our processors this morning in Alaska, they fillet each fish, pack it for shipping and our next shipment will arrive this Friday (5-29). We look forward to receiving this shipment because we are sold out. It’s a really popular fish this time of year and with our prices a 6.00 lower than anyone in town this next delivery will be sold out pretty quick too.

So, if you are wanting an experience that you’ll always look forward to, try some and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

If you have the opportunity to call the store, try reserving some so you won’t be left out.

Prices haven’t dropped as of this week due to the demand and also the low catch these guys are haing up

If you have never tried Fresh Copper River Sockeye Salmon, you are in for a treat.

One of the best tasting, most healthiest fish you’ll ever eat!!

This fish has a slight buttery-nutty flavor and is full of rich omega-3 fats. Great for your heart and absolutely delicious!

Reserve your order or call fist to make sure we haven’t sold out before you come up to the store.

Honestly, this is a fish that is so popular, it goes real fast. It’s only available fresh for a couple months out of the year. Don’t miss out.

CRAWFISH UPDATE:

PRICES: same as last week(no price increases this week as of Monday)

 

Field Runs(mixed sizes, no grading, no washing) 3.25 lb

Graded and Washed: (graded to the top three sizes and rinsed) 3.75 lb

Select: (largest available and washed) 4.25 lb(not available on Sunday)

We will not be cooking Crawfish on Saturday this week.

We will be getting deliveries for the weekend on Saturday and  Sunday.

They are available if needed. But I need to know by Saturday by 2:30 P.M.

Regular scheduled crawfish deliveries during the week are Tuesday, Wed, Thurs and Friday. Call the day before to order and we’ll have it ready for you.

During the week days, we do not keep extra crawfish in stock so if you are wanting any, full sacks are all we order for Tuesday through Thursday orders. Friday we can do half sacks(approx. 15-17 lbs.

 

Crawfish orders must be placed by 2:30 the day prior to picking them up.

Crawfish deliveries are made on Tuesday thru Sunday. 

Once you know you want crawfish, reserve your order. This will certainly protect your order.

We pay for your Crawfish when we place your order. Once your order is placed to the supplier, the Crawfish belongs to you.

Please keep up with the weather as I do because we do not take cancellations after your order has been placed to our supplier.

Hi everyone!

Yes it’s finally here!!

Memorial weekend is this coming weekend and it’s truly one of our largest weekends of the year for us. It’s going to be a great weekend for everyone and we want to make sure it stays that way.There are so many parties and gatherings among friends and families and we hope everyone plans early enough so they secure what they need on a weekend that absorbs most anything that’s popular. Especially when it comes to Seafood or Crawfish.

We have many orders already placed from weeks prior and Crawfish, Shrimp and Alaskan Copper River Sockeye is this weeks most popular items. So if you are looking for any, you need to get on board before it’s too late.

Once again, this is the biggest weekend for Crawfish and the fishermen will be struggling to meet this weeks demand.

UPDATE: COPPER RIVER SOCKEYE: ****23.99 a lb****

We were the only store to receive the first of the season Wild Copper River Sockeye from Alaska this weekend. All the suppliers around the area were calling me because they found out that I was the only store getting any. Central Market, Whole Foods, Seafood Supply and Ocean Beauty, no one got any.

Dealing with the fisherman and not the middle man really helps out and it also helps in keeping the cost down.

By the way, because I cut out the middle man, you’ll find that when the Copper River Sockeye is available through other stores, the cost will be 6.00 a pound more than my Copper River Sockeye.

Central Market and Whole Foods: 29.99 lb.

We have a really exciting week at the store this week with the second opening of the ALASKAN COPPER RIVER SALMON SEASON.

Our fisherman will be fishing for 24 straight hours starting today.The catch that they bring in will be delivered directly to the Cannery for processing and shipped out to me on Wednesday. We’ll have Fresh Copper River Sockeye available on Thursday and also for Memorial weekend. I am expecting approx. 150 whole fillets on this next shipment and the next opening will be at the end of the week. We would appreciate everyone that is wanting any to please call the store and let us know how much you might be needing.

So, please reserve your first of the season Fresh Alaskan Sockeye. It would greatly be appreciated so we know how much to bring in.

If you have never tried Fresh Copper River Sockeye Salmon, you are in for a treat.

One of the best tasting, most healthiest fish you’ll ever eat!!

This fish has a slight buttery-nutty flavor and is full of rich omega-3 fats. Great for your heart and absolutely delicious!

STONE CRAB CLAWS: 25.00 A LB

AVAILABLE THIS WEEK STARTING FROM THURSDAY. PLEASE RESERVE YOUR ORDER IF YOU WANT TO GUARANTEE THAT YOU GET SOME.

APPROX 6-8 CLAWS PER POUND.

CRAWFISH UPDATE:

PRICES: same as last week(no price increases this week as of Monday)

If anything changes it might go up a quarter a pound. Let’s hope not.

Field Runs(mixed sizes, no grading, no washing) 3.25 lb

Graded and Washed: (graded to the top three sizes and rinsed) 3.75 lb

Select: (largest available and washed) 4.25 lb

We will not be cooking Crawfish on Saturday this week.

We will be getting deliveries for the weekend on Saturday and  Sunday.

(Monday) if needed. As of today, I do not have any Crawfish orders for Monday. They are available if needed. But I need to know by Saturday by 2:30 P.M.

Crawfish orders must be placed by 2:30 the day prior to picking them up.

Hi everyone!

The first subject that I wanted to bring up was that I hope that all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day Weekend. Thanks to many of you that came by the store also.

Sorry the weather wasn’t what most everyone was hoping for but I hope everyone had a great weekend being together.

UPDATE: COPPER RIVER SOCKEYE

We have a really exciting week at the store this week with the first opening of the ALASKAN COPPER RIVER SALMON SEASON.

The first day of opening is this Thursday(May 14th). Our fisherman will be fishing for eight straight hours.The catch that they bring in will be delivered directly to the Cannery for processing and shipped out to Dallas on Friday for a Saturday delivery. I will know exactly when the shipment arrives from Alaska at DFW Airport on Saturday afternoon. I am expecting approx. 100 fillets on the first shipment and we would appreciate everyone that is wanting any to please call the store and let us know how much you might be needing. I have until Wednesday to increase my order in case the 100 fillets is not enough. The next opening won’t be until the following week.

Cost to you based on what the fisherman are telling me will be around 23.00 a pound.

So, please reserve your first of the season Fresh Alaskan Sockeye. It would greatly be appreciated so we know how much to bring in on our first shipment.

Some customers have already reserved up to 8 sides each and some have ordered just one side. It all adds up quickly and I want to make sure I bring in enough to meet everyone’s orders.

Prices around town will probably be in the upper 20’s and 30’s for the same fish. I bypass all the middle people and buy directly from the fisherman to save my customers everything I can. Please trust that I will keep my cost down for everyone to enjoy.

CRAWFISH UPDATE:

WE WILL BE COOKING CRAWFISH ON SATURDAY AS LONG AS THE WEATHER HOLDS UP.


PRICES: same as last week

Field Runs(mixed sizes, no grading, no washing) 3.25 lb

Graded and Washed: (graded to the top three sizes and rinsed) 3.75 lb

Select: (largest available and washed) 4.25 lb(Selects not available on Sunday)

Crawfish orders must be placed by 2:30 the day prior to picking them up.

Crawfish deliveries are made on Tuesday thru Sunday. 

Once you know you want crawfish, reserve your order. This will certainly protect your order.

We pay for your Crawfish when we place your order. Once your order is placed to the supplier, the Crawfish belongs to you.

Please keep up with the weather as I do because we do not take cancellations after your order has been placed to our supplier.

Wild Copper River Sockeye arriving on Saturday May 16th

If everything goes as planned, we will be getting the first fresh shipment of Fresh Sockeye Salmon of the season on May 16th. We bypass all the middle suppliers and we should have it here before anyone else does. Our Fish are being caught on the opening day of the season which is May 14th. My fisherman will deliver the first catch to our processors and they will process and ship out the following day so that it arrives in Dallas on Saturday.

May is a perfect month for grilling with friends and family. The flavor of the Alaskan Wild Sockeye Salmon is rich and full of healthy Omega 3 oils. I believe it has a little nutty buttery flavor. Give us a call and reserve some. It’ll be the tastiest fish you’ve had in a long time. There’s nothing like it.

Take care!

David

PLEASE CALL TO RESERVE YOUR ORDER. (25.00 A POUND).(6-8 CLAWS PER POUND) GREAT SURPRISE FOR MOTHER’S DAY!!

Well, this is a Big Weekend coming up. Is everyone prepared? Is everyone aware of what weekend it is?

Well, for those who do not keep up with special occasions, IT’S MOTHER DAY ON SUNDAY!!

I hope I just saved many of you from getting into some trouble.

We expect as always a really busy Mother’s day weekend. We look forward to seeing all of you and we want to make sure that we are here for you. If there is something special you are needing, just give us a call or come by and we can discuss it or reserve what ever you may be needing.

One thing I do remember every year is that we order a lot of Crawfish for Mother’s Day weekend.

I just want to remind every one to please reserve your order as soon as you know that you are going to want Crawfish for this weekend. Please do not wait until the last minute as this is one of the biggest Crawfish weekends of the season.

Okay! I got that one out of the way.

Now, I have a new update on the upcoming Copper River Season opening.

SPECIAL REMINDER: COPPER RIVER SEASON OPENS ON MAY 14TH.

I spoke with my fisherman in Alaska again today and they updated me on the Copper River Sockeye opening which they are now telling me that the first opening of the season will be on May 14th. They will fish for eight hours, deliver the catch to the processors and the processors will fillet, pack and ship my order so that I receive it on Saturday May 16th. I will go to the airport and pick up my shipment and have it back to the store for all our customers who have been waiting for it since last season.

This is the freshest anyone can ever purchase unless you are in Alaska buying from the fisherman at the fishing docks. We bypass all middlemen and avoid all the high markups by dealing directly with the actual fisherman.

We do not have an exact cost yet for the first shipment but it will be as low a I can get it for everyone. It’s the same as I do every year. Get on board and reserve your order as soon as possible as I do need some input as to those who are interested in getting some of the first shipment.

Our plans are to bring in approximately 200 pounds of fillets on the first shipment.

I WILL LET EVERYONE KNOW THE COST ON NEXT WEEK’S NEWSLETTER. I WON’T KNOW UNTIL THEN.

Coming soon:

MEMORIAL WEEKEND: 5-22 THRU 5-25. LARGEST CRAWFISH WEEKEND OF THE

Quality of Crawfish: This past weekend, they were very NICE.

GRADED AND WASHED ARE FINALLY AVAILABLE.

So that no one is confused, washed and graded are crawfish that are graded to the top three sizes and rinsed off with a steady flow of water. Not always are all the crawfish consistent in size but

they do the best they can to provide us the quality that we ask for. Please do not expect all crawfish to be all large in the graded and washed. You will find some smaller ones mixed in occasionally, they are definitely not perfect.
