Not a bad price. I saw somewhere was selling sacks for $55 -- I'm thinking they're probably all tiny.

The demand is always there. And the quantity demanded probably increases after Easter, during the summer. So I'm not buying that angle of it.


Time to rewrite economics textbooks, RealityTiger doesn't buy the laws of supply and demand.

Look, I understand. Crawfish farmers want to make money too. But don't piss on our back and tell us it's raining. Don't come up with some b.s. about weather or why this year will be a bad crop. Man up and just say, "the price is $2.99 a pound take it or leave it".


I think you're pointing the finger in the wrong direction unless you're buying directly from a farmer. The crawfish you buy this weekend were purchased from a farmer for $1.25, if you pay $2.00+ a pound maybe you should talk to your local retailer.

Yep. Since I have no idea about craw fishing. I guess lent just is on the crawfishes' calendars huh?




I think demand drops after easter while supplies are at their best. Seems like every year the week after easter they drop by at least $0.50/lb

I dont understand the bitching from crawfisherman. I have a buddy who crawfishes the basin and all he does is bitch about it. He's not catching shite right now and complaining it cost him money every day. He's been doing this for 15 years. You would think by now he would know it is too early and hes wasting his time. I ran traps for 4 years on the side in rice fields and there was money to be made. Yeah the price would drop as the season went along but that usually meant you were catching alot more and it made up for it. If you are crawfishing and not making money go do something else.

My fil is selling crawfish now. They are making about .55 a lb at the market. Thats about $19 a sack profit. Thats pretty good for the markets selling them.

I think it just spikes Easter weekend then levels off again until Mothers Day weekend then it spikes again then levels off until Memorial Day when it spikes again. You will find that depending on who you're buying your crawfish from, once the spillway heats up the price is going to stay fairly consistent.

It's pretty much over by summer. We had a boil 2nd weekend of June a couple years ago that we had planned a couple months in advance because it was the only time we could all get together. We were worried it would be over. It ended 2 weeks later.

I got a sack for $44 the other day but it was shy of 30 pounds.

RD has them for $1.69 a pound right now on the corner of Broad and Earhart.

That's not true. You're making a freshman mistake if you think demand changes. Demand never changes, qty demanded does.

Some places raise prices on the 1st of every month cause that's when people get paid, welfare, food stamps, etc. Always good for sales
