What season is it?????

Crawfish season. Mardi Gras marks the oficial begining to mudd bug season. This year It should be a bumper crop with all the rain we had here. Most crawfish sold in stores are farm raised, which is fine. but stay away from the imported stuff, they preservatives that have been banned here. Local prices run from $4.99lb to 6.99lb depending on who packed em (this is for peeled & deveined tail meat) The creatures don't taste any different tween farm & spillway crawfish but thats how they are marketed.
Yumm bisque, stew, pie, etouffee, fried balls, popcorn fried, poboys & crawfish boils. I have some photos of the boils
