Default Where to get Crawfish?

they used to have frozen cajun crawfish at the local Walmart but havent seen em lately...
I looked online and found Louisiana Crawfish Co. they got good prices ($6.xx/lb for jumbos) but u gotta order a minimum of 10 lbs and im only looking for 2-3 lbs.

i come from southern family and stayed in Louisiana for a while with family, fishing the bayous, catching small sharks, Red snapper, sting rays, about 100lbs of blue crab. ate some gator and i just love it all. Crawfish is just delicious.

trying to stay away from seafood shops cause they charge an arm and a leg.
any ideas?

Haha, after watching WAY too much Swamp people, and looking at the site for La. Crawfish Co., I see they have alligator nuggets (with free shipping?). How is that stuff?

I wanted to fry it, really tempted to order a pound, but I'd probably have to eat it all by myself.

I'm with Dakota, for the price it'* not that hard to catch them and they are in just about any creek. (The larger the creek, the larger the crawdads) I've seen them 6-8 inches. Easiest in slow moving water tipping up bigger flat rocks sloooooowly. As you raise the rock and the current begins to clear the merk spot em, grab em, bucket them.

Waders? Pull up them big boy britches and just do it with ole sneakers on. We want pictures of a couple pinch marks also. They dont really hurt. If one "sinks in" just means your sure to have it. Just rap your hand on the pail and it'll let loose. hehehe
