Crawfish season 2014 is right around the corner! Here are some of the best places to buy crawfish in Shreveport and Bossier.

You won't be able to find live crawfish in the area for another week or so, and once they do arrive, prices will be high, but the prices will begin to drop as the temperatures climb in South Louisiana.

Our state accounts for more than 90 percent of U.S. crawfish production. Steven Minville with the Louisiana Crawfish Board says he expects prices to be high through most of March, but he encourages you to continue to buy Louisiana grown mudbugs.

Some of these great places sell live crawfish by the bag, while others are sit-down restaurants that have really great crawfish items on the menu.

    Some of the best crawfish etoufee you will ever taste. I also love the fish topped with crawfish etoufee. It's called the Atchafalaya. But for sit-down in the restaurant you'll find great boiled crawfish too.
