In the Spring in Tyler ... It's Time for Crawfish!
Some folks call 'em crayfish, crawdads, or mudbugs, but here in Texas they are simply CRAWFISH, whether they are swamp crawfish or farm-raised pond crawfish.
We've been catching crawfish all our life, and love the tradition of a long, leisurely crawfish boil in spring!
Crawfish are healthy food. They are an excellent source of high-quality protein, low in calories, fat and saturated fat, and a good source of vitamins.
Several restaurants and supermarkets such as Brookshires offer boiled crawfish by the pound in season. Also, a number of seafood markets and outlets offer live crawfish for sale in Tyler and East Texas during the crawfish season in the spring.
The last five years we have purchased our live, and boiled, crawfish from Wade's Place on East Main Street in Chandler.
We've also been pleased with the live crawfish we've purchased by the sack from Circle M Crawfish in Big Sandy, on Highway 155 just south of U.S. 80.
