It's that time of year again, crawfish season is back. But these unusually cold temperatures in southwest Louisiana have some Acadiana residents concerned about yields this season.
Compared to last years numbers at this time, researchers with LSU AgCenter are expecting a sufficient difference. "We're still trying to calculate the total catch but it looks like it's going to be off for the first couple, November and December months of the season it's probably off by about half or so" says Mark Shirley with the LSU AgCenter.
But the constant alternating weather can work in the farmers favor. Shirley says the weather patterns with the hot and cold, hot and cold is making those crawfish grow, it's just that they are not consistently being harvested.
While hoping for mother nature's cooperation, fisherman are standing by an old saying, "When the wind is from the east you catch the least, it's from the west catch the best."
This was reported by KLFY news in Lafayette.
Sounds like Crawfish should be looking good soon!
