Live Crawfish finds and price check for 2012

So far this season, I have heard the crawfish are smaller and a tad expensive and from what I have seen they may be right. This will change as the season matures though. I know HEB is waiting a little longer to put their orders in for live bags and by the pound orders because of size and quality.

I went to Cypress Grill off William Cannon for their Crawfish Tuesday boil and was not disappointed. Very full and tasty. I do prefer to boil my own at home though.

Where have you found live crawfish so far? What was their size? Price?

I don't throw huge parties worthy of a 15 or 30 pound bag so I look for "by the pound" sales. The few HEB's around my house usually have large tables of live crawfish to pick your own from this time of year. I hope to have many small boils of those tasty mudbugs. Stuffed, located up north on 620, has great Andouille sausage for your boils.

Keep posting your finds here throughout the 2012 season. Enjoy!
