I live in South Florida and have also been fortunate enough to try Golden Crabs. Actually ran into a man who was selling them at a farmers market, they were pretty reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. I have also found them in Islandmorda in the Keys at an AYCE place best deal going! Apparently they live out really far and only a few people fish for them. Thats my 2 cents!
I myself have never heard of such a crab - do you have a picture - how large are they?
Oh BTW every time I give my 2 cents I think some one makes a penny on me cause they only every give me a penny for my thoughts.
I say this in humor - carry it with ya - I am not the originator of the statement - just thought it was funny and could not wait to use it.
Thanks for the opportunity to use it and please tell me more about those golden crabs - I will be using Google to find out more on my own.
