Hi everyone!

and everyone needs to be aware of this.

FLORIDA STONE CRAB ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR THE END OF THIS WEEK. I ORDERED SOME TODAY AND WE WILL BE RECEIVING OUR SHIPMENT ON THURSDAY MORNING. WE CAN ADD TO THIS ORDER UP UNTIL 2:00 p.m. TOMORROW. 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:

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.
