Early start to crawfish season in Monroe

MONROE, La - You don’t have to wait until Mardi Gras for crawfish.  Crawfish season has kicked off in time for Christmas. Although the cold weather has officially hit the twin cities, crawfish cooks credit recent warm weather to the early start to the crawfish season.

Crawfish are in the same family as lobsters crabs and shrimp. They are normally seen during late January or February.

 People began lining up the Riverside Coney island in Monroe early Tuesday to get their hands on crawfish. Many crawfish lovers said that are happy to hear that they too can have the rare disk on their table during Christmas.

Cooks at Riverside Coney Island say they plan to keep a steady flow of the Louisiana favorite dish fresh from the pot straight to the plate.
