Crawfish Tracker: Prices take another small dive after Easter
BATON ROUGE - We've finally reached the big, meaty abdomen of crawfish season.
According to WBRZ's Crawfish Price Index, the average price of boiled crawfish in the capital area is $4.48 for our first post-Easter check-in. Fetching live crawdads will cost you about $2.72 on average at most of the favorite stops in the area.
While we've still yet to reach the same low prices we had last year, you should be able to grab a pound for as little as $3.99 boiled or $2 live (with sizes varying, obviously).
