Crawfish season has arrived
BATON ROUGE - Tis' the season. For crawfish, that is.
The Louisiana delicacy can be found on many restaurants menus across the Baton Rouge area.
For this this time of year, its not unusual for the mudbugs to be sold. The rarity comes with the size.
Christian Delaune, owner of Tommy's Fish House, says the larger size of crawfish comes as a gift from Mother Nature.
"The weather that we've been having is tremendously helpful," Delaune said.
Although we are seeing bigger crawfish right now, restaurant owners are saying that the peak is still March.
"We are expecting quite a large yield of large crawfish round then. The way the year is looking so far, we are expecting quite a great year."
We checked several businesses across town for prices. For around $5 a pound, you can give this year's early crop a try.
