Damn I paid less than that to fly them to Denver 3 years ago. Was going to do a boil this spring but they are going to have to come down first. I remember buying them for 1.00 lb cooked at roadside stands in MS when I wad a kid
You can always go spend a day running the traps next to the RR track. I saw that Cappy knows how. He used chicken necks, we always used melt for crawfish, chicken necks or beef lips for crabs. But since the old slaughter house shut down, I would guess beef lips would be hard to come by...LOL
I been saying crawfish gonna be tuff to get for what's now become a traditional Easter boil in Louisiana.
We've had cold weather before.... just makes the crawfish more appreciated when they come back, besides that why we have freezers ,....... the good years we load 'em.
When younger and we'd go crawfishing, we had to sell enough to the local general store to pay for the gas, drinks and grocery's used and consumed, THEN we had to have enough left to feed the families. Course back then things were cheaper, including the crawfish.
Then we had to bring home enough to feed the families.
Then we had to buy enough to feed the family
Kind of miss catching enough. (I know it wouldn't be as much fun, its hot at there!)
