    Down here in S.W. Florida, I've never seen crabs less than $16 a dozen. And that was for small ones. When I go to the Jersey shore to see my mom, I buy them along the highway for 6-8 bucks a bushell. That's the only time I can afford to eat the little critters.

    Blue crabs are coming in like crazy.. If I never eat another Blue Crab I will not be upset. I am sick of the damn things already.
    We are allowed up too 5 recreational traps per fishing license per household.
    I have caught about 100 so far.
    Took on a partner in my venture. He is a good ship mate. Works hard.
    Oh my dear GOD! I miss Blue Crab!!!!!

    So very jealous!

    That is a fine lookin' First Mate you have there. Hopefully, he works for Crab!

    Jeff.. He gave his dead Great Grandmother a ticket the other day.. Dug her up so she would show up in court..
    He has a new trick, cammo netting over his boat, damn we can't spot him, sneaky devil.
    Bought him lunch and he gave me a warning ticket for leaving Castaways restaurant to fast..
    "Jeff I just paid for your damn lunch for Gods sake?"
    That is why I am giving you a warning not a ticket..
    Were trying to get the drain plug out of his boat and sink it. Bur the son of gun wont get more than 50 feet from it..
    He is a trip, he always cuts us breaks, we like Jeff..

    Panama? Not sure what they have for crabs down there..
    Were loaded with nice blue crabs here on the Saint Johns.. Damn problem is the thieves.. We put them on the edges of the river so as to keep them away from boat traffic.. Then the SOBs pick them up, steal the crabs, then drop them in the deep middle channel. Gone..
    I would smash into them with my boat at about 50 m.p.h., but they hit them at night..
    Tourists steal them local red necks steal them, I just go buy some when I want a few..

    Was a place on the way to Hunting Island near Beaufort called Johnson Creek Tavern. had an amazing blue crab cake sandwhich.
    I used to love going crabbing when I was a kid. We used to go to Pawley's Island, and/or Litchfield beach area, and go crabbing in the Intracostal Waterway. Man what fun that was.

    Now as far as P.I and 3rd Bn, when I was there in the early 80's I didn't have time to go crabbing!!! LOL. Although there were a few guys who had the crabs during First Phase.
