Where to buy Squilla/ mantis shrimp/ shako

I just discovered today that the name of one of my favorite foods from the first decade of my life is called squilla or mantis shrimp in English and shako in Japanese.

Where can I get this in SoCal? does it exist here? live ones? I'm guessing that I would have better luck in Louisiana right? so if I go to Louisiana to get this, what months of the year should I go?
