Source for live crayfish in Vegas?

I have been craving crawfish boil for weeks now and have been searching everywhere, but nobody seems to stock live crayfish. Does anyone know where I might be able to get some? We're in crayfish season right now, so I figured the markets should start getting them in. I used to get them around this time in SoCal, but I don't remember if I've ever actually seen them stocked at the markets in Vegas.

I have checked: 168, SF Supermarket, the Vietnamese market on Spring Mountain (Ton Fat? Can never remember the name of it), 99 Ranch, Seafood City, and International Market.

As a last ditch effort, I called Boiling Crab to see if they'd be willing to source some for me since I assume they get it flown in daily, but they were unwilling to accommodate. I might try calling Emeril's New Orleans Fish House and seeing if they'd be more willing to help me out.

This quest for live crayfish made me realize we don't really have a fish market in Vegas. Branded Meats, where I go for my butcher needs, doesn't carry anything live and their seafood selection is limited anyway.
