Crawfish Tracker: Temperatures up, prices down
BATON ROUGE - Well, we've seemingly escaped those chilly, sub-60 degree days for good, and it looks like we're getting away from the high crawfish prices as well.
According to WBRZ's Crawfish Price Index, the post-Easter dip continued this week with more restaurants falling below the $4 mark for boiled crawfish by the pound. The average price for boiled is sitting at $4.14 per pound, with live at about $2.68 per pound.
While we still haven't dipped as low as we did last spring, we're definitely looking at the cheapest prices of the season so far.
