Well, it's been here for almost 2 months now.
My sons uncle and his 3 sons started a crawfish business on the side last year. This year they bought a mobile rig. They went through 27 sacks of crawfish this past weekend. They boiled about 10 sacks and sold the rest. Prices were $3.00 lb. live and $4.25 lb. boiled!
AIYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! C'est Si Bon, mon sha'!

Yesterday, while I was at my dads house shooting at milk jugs and paper targets, my son was running sacks of crawfish to customers. He worked his regular job Saturday, and worked crawfish Sunday. In the pic of crawfish, those were medium crawfish they had separated from the larger ones. That was from only 6 sacks. There were more, but they came later. He said the sacks were averaging 35-40 lbs. They were buying them from a farmer in Mamou, La. Here in Avoyelles Parish, we have a lot of private farmers and also get them from Krotz Springs, La. He's coming by tonight to bring me 15 lbs. of boiled crawfish from yesterday.
Ma oui, mon sha'! I can't wait to suck da heads, and pinch dem tails! slobber

I love Crawdads (sorry, Nevada spelling) and we even have them here in the desert in ponds and reservoirs.

My Vietnamese friends love to buy these and do backyard boils.

I can't ever get any decent meat on them.. too much work for no gain lol. I always have to grab a burger afterwards.

New potatoes? shrug
We use small red potatoes here in Cajun Country. But, I am ALWAYS open to trying something new. Please, do share.

Ours have a little more meat on them...oh, and they are feisty buggers as well. We call them "Yabbies"...catch them with a sock with rotting meat in them, or nets.



Local (now defunct) tourist steam railway has the water makeup fed from a local fresh water dam. One day Compo (guy I used to work with who was a driver) pulled a similar yabby out of the strainer as he filled the tender.

Handed it to some tourists for information...when it got to the Japanese tourists, they ate it...raw.

After we boil them, any leftovers are peeled for jambalaya, bisque, gumbo, and etouffee. There is a yellow fat (the brains) that we scrape from the head to use as an ingredient in a roux. Aw man, you talk about good, yeah!
