Crawfish Tracker: Let the price drop begin
BATON ROUGE - The cost of boiled crawfish seems to have taken its first real dip of the 2019 season.
According to WBRZ's Crawfish Price Index, the average price dropped to $5.22, down from last week's average of roughly $6. While it's still far from a perfect crawdad economy at the moment, prices have dropped a full dollar at many local markets.
Depending on where you are (or how far you're willing to drive) you can grab a pound of boiled mudbugs for as low as $3.99.
