SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - "Every time the Red River floods, back floods into this piece of property, it puts fish in the crawfish farm. When you have fish and crawfish cohabitating, the fish are going to win. The fish are going to eat the crawfish. Therefore, when fish are eating the crawfish, that means we won't catch enough for any kind of harvesting for any kind of profit," said Smokey James.
But, he's hopeful he'll be selling crawfish again next season.
Smokey says when he's in business, he's the only crawfish farm in the Shreveport-Bossier area with a purging tank to wash and clean crawfish.
