Not necessarily. Many factors play a role in the wrap up of the crawfish harvest, including water quality and temperature. If we experience a milder-than-usual May and early June, the harvest could continue a bit longer than normal. But if May gets really hot and June is even hotter, the mudbugs will usually burrow down below the ponds and effectively end the season. We can tell pretty quickly by working the traps daily when the catch starts to diminish. But only Mother Nature and the crawfish themselves know when the season will officially end. Every year we try to make it through the end of June, but we keep our customers posted as it winds down.
Question & Answer: If the crawfish season starts early, will it end early?
