Is this straight off the boat or retail?  I'd love to know how many 9's would be in there.

$300 off the boat.

That would be some big crabs. That is probably only three dozen at 129. I think 400 is a not unheard of ‘in the zone’ price.

What is the location of sale?  And live correct?

If this is like the "Price is Right" then I will say $1.00. I think everyone else is over.

Since you said the price is to way low I am going to guess $225. Tell us how they are. I would love to get a bushel of that size for that price this Friday.

Did that guy say they'd be heavy crabs?    I've had several over 8" this year but most of them have been pizz poor. Then again that may be because most of the big ones I've caught have been way upriver in fresh water... Maybe they leave before they get heavy?   I never seem to catch big ones downriver though... Guess it's just luck?

OK, now he says that he got the bushel in Aug, ordered in July....NOT that he can get me one...BUT, 40 crabs is about right for JUMBO crabs...1) everything I see says 6" plus are large and some call them jumbo..2) price is from $70-$90 plus a doz....3) these are from the crabber...4) I'm guessing that to get 3 dozen plus OVER 7 1/2" would push $400...Only thing could be he is friends with him?? From what I've read through the season that size would be about impossible without culling a few(?) days catch...BUT, I could be wrong, it's happened before

So what is the actual price for a bushel then? I called down to Lindys on the eastern shore and they are selling number 1 for $185 a bushel.

kinda weird how they get graded after they are bought from the crabber..  Mostly for crabbers it's 1's - 6"+ heavy,  2's - 5 1/4 to 6" heavy, lights - 5 1/4+ and finally females.   Most sellers take the 7"+ heavy and call them jumbos, and some take the 7+ lights and get extra money for them.

And some people still vote for the Green Party. Go figure!!!
