    Does anyone happen to know where to buy live crawfish in the South Sound area? I am doing a seafood boil on New Years Eve. I know Johnny's has precooked but I would like to use live. Thank you in advance Tup:

    Drew looks like Louisiana Crawfish Company is out of stock or maybe its the off season. They don't list any live craws for delivery right now.

    This may be a little off subject but I noticed the wdfw requires all non-native crawfish to be killed before transport.They do this to prevent non-native/parasite invasion I assume.But by law you already are not allowed to transport bait from body of water to another for the same reasons.It seems to be a redundant law that prevents people from harvesting more of the non-native species for the table.I was very impressed by the local crawfish I caught this year.Very big and very clean.It would be nice to be able to catch more of your own to boil at home.

    drew we use crawfish co of central florida lol they selll it in different ways but if you want live usually best to get a bunch of people together and boil a sack which is approximately 40lbs. They ship right to the airport and you pick it up usually southwest because they have a fridge in their cargo bay. Usually good for 1 night but the sooner the better to keep them alive and kickin (dead crawfish really stinks up the pot). Also we use Louisiana fish fry co's seafood boil. Get the powder, the liquid just makes it spicy and doesn't get the broth flavor right. They're prolly the best company i've dealt with ordering live southern crawfish (better taste than the breed up here) which i used to do almost weekly. Man this makes me want to order some Tup:

    I'm not sure what to call them, but they have more of a flat tail and their shell is a bit sharper on their tail. Bought some at 99 ranch before and the meat just didn't taste the same. If you've been to jakes crawfish restaraunt, it's those that they serve there.
