Crawfish Tracker: Get in while the gettin's good
BATON ROUGE - Crawfish prices continued to drop this week, with most sellers boasting their lowest prices of the season thus far.
According to WBRZ's Crawfish Price Index, the average price of boiled crawfish in the capital area has fallen to about $4.32 as of Thursday. Many of the popular mudbug vendors are selling the crustaceans for anywhere from $3 to $4 per pound.
The average price has dropped considerably in the past few weeks, mostly due to warm weather finally returning to the area. We'll be watching to see if these lower prices hold, as temperatures are expected to drop significantly over the next week.
