Houston Residents: where to buy live crawfish - Update



I need a couple of sacks of crawfish - about 60 lbs. I don't want to get them shipped - I'm willing to drive as far as Beaumont. Any places near by? I need them the first weekend of March.


ETA: Don't ever use 1800crawfish. The guy is a joke and never showed up Saturday morning.

That's not a bad idea. It's not too far.

I called zydeclaws in Humble yesterday and he was not getting them yet, "too small". He told me to call back on Tuesday and he hopes to have them coming in. I need them for next Saturday myself.

I've always had luck with buying them from one of the places that deliver them to the bars and resturaunts. Cajun Gorment or Critter Runners is two I can think of off top my head. If you call them in advance you can meet up with them in the parking lot of one their customers, however it always depends on the supply at that point in the season.

"my theory is this, Obama was about to make a fake statement to open the Gulf up to drilling so to save the day BP deliberately Blew up the well to Avoid Drilling in the USA as the plan is to keep our fellow Americans UNEMPLOYED, as to carry out the agenda of Bankrupting THE USA, see there is more oil in the world than we know what to due with but to lie to the world in order to steal our money and Bankrupt every citizen in our country they only allow drilling in the Mid-east, there is NO SHORTAGE believe me, My farther had a great company were we did communications in the oilfield but Pappa BUSH (Mr. OPEC) dropped the price of oil to $8 per barrel in the early 80's which was to bankrupt every independent oil company in the USA than they moved all the Rigs Abroad and put to many restrictions on the USA and bought up every independent oil company in the USA, now the Big 4 can lie to the fools in America and tell them we are running out of oil and have to rape you for $4 per gallon of gas, its called false scarcity and if you own all the oil in the world it is very easy to lie and steal your money, WAKE THE frick UP AMERICA , its almost over with, 911 was an inside job and it is a fact!

re: Houston Residents: where to buy live crawfish - Update


yeah, I talked to him monday - he's selling, but they're too much right now

he would literally talk me into a headache for an hour of his conspiracy theory shite....he's a nut

once he found out I was in Austin, home of the king of conspiracy theorist - Alex Jones, it was over

I was scared to call him, but he was my only outlet for consistent 400+ lbs of crawfish twice a month

Not to hijack the thread, but I didn't want to start an entirely new one:

Living in Ohio, where's the best place to buy crawfish to have delivered?
Or is this just a dumb idea in general?

Just an Update: this guy is a frickin joke. I called a week in advance and reserved my crawfish. Saturday morning he never calls or shows up after I drive from the Woodlands to Richmond and 6-10. When I finally call him he tells me had a "tough time getting crawfish from Louisiana" and now I'll have to meet him at south Beltway and 45 after he calls me back in about an hour. Of course the dude never calls...luckily I was able to get them somewhere else but this guy really screwed me around.

So a heads up to any other Houston OTers, don't ever use this guy.
