 I can see where supply and demand comes into affect after the freeze and the price goes up.

 But how does the freeze justify doubling the price to boil them??? (usually $1 a lb to boil).

 

 

MARKETING!!!

Same here. I will make a few trips to south farm. Pretty easy to catch a sack or  2 w/ 2 dozen nets.

They're getting greedy!! I've been meaning to get traps and get my own, but changing jobs put a halt to that!!

It's gotten really predictable down here. Crawfish prices won't drop til after Easter because every coonass family wants to have a boil for Easter. The Monday after Easter they drop.

I was just thinking I haven't been to LBC in a longtime. Timothy lake up by MT Hood is a good mud bug hole. Wonder if haystack reservoir has a good population. Kids catch the snot out of crappie there.
