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!
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.

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

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.
Regular scheduled crawfish deliveries during the week are Tuesday, Wed, Thurs and Friday. Call the day before to order.
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.
