The price is the lowest it's been at this time of year in a long time

major problem with your plan is that crawfish farmers don't set the price, the market does




I don't know why so many people have trouble believing this little piece of information.

The only thing that may slow you down a bit is this little cold snap but it may not even phase you at all.

The "market" is from the back of Boudreaux's rusty pickup truck to Acme Seafood Mart.

I assume you mean levees?

basically dams to keep water level consistent throughout pond

It's always bad. There's always a reason. Last "good" season was 1974.

Hey yuppie boy you got to have the levees to keep the water in the pond ...I kid I kid...but the levees are there to keep the water in the pond (and to keep it level).

You should have seen Hwy 90 between Rayne and Duson after that big rain we got a while back. It looked like a big arse lake on the south side of 90.

Did all the crawfish escape? Maybe that is what the OP is talking about.


The great crawfish bust/break of 2013.

Crawfishermen never stop whining. "too many, not enough, too cold, too hot, too many farm-raised"?

Also add "too much rain, not enough rain" and that sums up all crawfishermen

as others said, they are levees to keep the water level consistent. It is also where baby crawfish like to stay until they mature.

It's just the annual (i.e. every single year) excuse to artificially inflate crawfish prices

too wet, too dry, too cold, too warm, late freeze, early freeze...

every single year there is some excuse why prices need to be higher this year

crawfish farmers can complain until they are blue in the face but price isn't going to go up unless supply decreases or demand increases
