Are you lookin to eat or fish with? Either way check with the Sea Dragon restaurant at 183 & 620 next to Gold's Gym. I have purchased them there before to eat.

Looking to eat the li'l guys. I knew the Sea Dragon served 'em, but didn't know they sold them. I will check 'em out.

Everything I've seen has been very small. Not surprising at this time of the year. Just not going to pay $3/lb for small mud bugs.

Mary Quinlan boat ramp on Lake Austin ;D I see those damn things all the time on the boat ramp and crawling around near the bank. During peak season, there's a local guy that spotlights them with a net at night and loads up 3-4 five gallon buckets full of them.

best to go all out and drive to houston. there are several places you can get some nice bugs. prices are usually 2.29-3.49 depending on size. the large ones are amazing in about a month or so!!! Hell, just take a road trip to ******* country. if you want i can pm you the distributors. some secrets you gotta keep low. p.s check qualityseafood on airport, they usually have some by now and some real nice oysters.

Just got back from Houston. Didn't have time to look, but I hear they're still mostly small right now.

However, they are going for $1.50-$2.00/lb in Southeast Texas.

May have to make a run when they get bigger!

joliver, I may take you up on that info.

The best place to get crawfish in austin is at the discharge of mansfield dam....LCRA Park--they line the bank when the sun is shinning. In ten minutes you'll find fifteen; as long as nobody beat you to them. They are excellent sized...four to six inches....

Which Randalls is this?  The one on Braker and 183?
If anyone looks into this tell me what they look like. I saw some really poor lookin' ones the other day at HEB. We did up 73#s at Easter and they were GREAT!!
