Recalled seeing mention in Al Ristori's column from the Star Ledger about a possible state record. I e-mailed him and here was his response:
Lee: That crab was measured at Crabby's Tackle in Keyport, but I haven't heard anything from the state so far as to whether it's been accepted.

A couple of months back I recall that you mentioned in your column something about a possible NJ record Blueclaw Crab.
Can you provide me any additional detail ?
Thank You, in advance.
