I have also seen those You Tube videos also. Look like good sized crabs too!
Interesting! A guy posted on Facebook about big crabs he got in St Augustine!

Thanks for the report !
my cousin was catching reliably at kennedy park with chicken on string, but since the storm has not been able to catch as well....maybe the storm moved them around

The Old Couple Outdoors just posted a new video last night.  They went to their secret spot (I'm desperately trying to figure out the location) and caught 6 nice jimmies and 1 sook on hand lines although one was caught in a cotton string dip net.  One of the jimmies looked like 8+ inches and they all had yellow bellies.   The crabs are still here, they're just hiding.   laugh
