BATON ROUGE- As the Lenten season begins, the unofficial kickoff of crawfish season is well underway. Hundreds of people, especially Catholics, traditionally purchase the Louisiana specialty on Fridays in lieu of meat.

This season, though, consumers will see some of the highest prices for mudbugs in years.

News 2's Rob Krieger will have more on the prices of crawfish later in the day.
