Things are getting better for crawfish lovers in the Shreveport area. Prices have dropped significantly over the past month.

We have been tracking the prices for several years and usually the price falls in April. But that didn't happen this year. We do have some good news now. Prices for mudbugs are now falling dramatically.

Just about every local spot has dropped the price by at least a dollar a pound for boiled crawfish and prices are down even more for live crawfish. Almost every local hot spot is selling boiled bugs for under $5 a pound and you can find live crawfish for somewhere between $2,50 a pound to about $3 dollars a pound.

Will Crawfish Prices Keep Falling?

Despite inflation and supply chain issues, we do expect the prices to keep falling between now and Memorial Day as the supply picks up. You will also find larger crawfish too. I expect the price of boiled crawfish to get close to $4 a pound in the next couple of weeks.
