Season starts around late February

SAN ANTONIO – Be prepared, everyone, crawfish season is on its way.

The best time for crawfish usually starts around late February.

Crawfish boils are fun, messy and delicious.

If you’re new at eating crawfish, here are four tips for you.

Tip No. 1: Dress casual a.ka. don’t dress fancy

Eating crawfish is quite an experience if you’ve never experienced it before. The crawfish juices will get all over the place. Do yourself a favor and wear clothes that can be spilled on.

Tip No. 2: Don’t rush at peeling crawfish

Peeling crawfish takes patience, that’s for sure. Pinch the middle of the crawfish and twist it as you pinch to separate the head from the tail. Then, you can pinch again along the ridge of the back along the tail to loosen the grip of the meat to the shell. Then, you pull the shell from the meat.
