Crawfish Tracker: Prices stay low heading into Easter weekend
BATON ROUGE - It looks like cheaper crawfish prices are sticking around for Easter weekend.
According to WBRZ's Crawfish Price Index, the average price of boiled crawfish in the capital area is about $4.21 per pound as we head into the year's biggest weekend for crawfish. Prices are largely the same as they were last week, holding steady at a season-low.
A pound at most local vendors will set you back anywhere between $3-4, with prices going as low as $2.99.
And don't forget, some retailers have been having trouble keeping up with demand, so get out there and grab those mudbugs while you still can.
