Wow! I think I should have entered the contest. Like I posted on another thread here. I caught 7 crabs over 8" last weekend at thompsons creek. The biggest I actually measured was 8 3/8". That's ok, I know where the "honey hole" is now and will go back to get some more next weekend.
unfortunately you wouldnt have made top 3
but anything over 8 is a hog to me
