BATON ROUGE – With Mardi Gras revelry all over, today marks the first Friday of Lent. Hundreds of residents across south Louisiana and Baton Rouge will choose start pinching crawfish tails this weekend.

Friday, WBRZ launched its first Crawfish Price Index to track the average price for a pound of boiled crawfish in the Baton Rouge area.

The index includes a survey of 10 locations submitted by WBRZ viewers through social media. Each Friday, we will update the Crawfish Price Index with new price data. The survey is intended to show how prices are changing over time rather than a complete record of every price in the Baton Rouge area. 

For March 3, the average price of crawfish in our area is $4.28. Gonzales residents looking for a deal can stop by Christian Brothers Seafood and pick up a pound of boiled crawfish for just $3.49.

Pit-N-Peel in Baton Rouge is running a Lent special every Friday for $2.99 a pound (with a 5 pound minimum).
