Steve, best I've got for a pic so far.  I put him in the citation/state records post too.  You'ld never guess how hard it is to get a pic to be legit till you try.  PITA.  I got him outta the freezer last night to shoot a few more.  I saw one guy bending the ruler around the shell like the way you measure fish.  I take it that it is not the way to go from reading other posts on the topic.  I'll become a supportting member soon BTW.  This is a good group of people and I like the site real well.  Thanks!

Ken, no harm intended.  You could be right.  That method gets you 1/16th or 1/8th more crab but that's the way DNR allows you to measure fish.  This issue is different than fish though and point to point is the number we are trying to get pictures of.  It was harder than we all think.  I guess the point is that we all catch some darn nice crabs and it's nice to sher em.  So, there's a lot of discussion on how we can measure.  KC is the moderator of the state citation/record board.  Most are saying straight ruler is the way to go.  I see that Seaweed and others think that a caliper is the way to go.  Unless you have a good caliper that shows inches clearly to the camera, that's not doing too much for us.  There was a post showing a pretty nice caliper and someone suggested to Steve that the site sell them so we can even out the playing field.  I'd get one.  In "crab news" on the main board there's some big crabs in the 9 inch crab post and there are some in the citation board as well BTW.  I think you already knew that though... anyway, nice crab!  I hope we top these this year.  Our season is just getting fired up on my river.  Can't wait for a couple days off...
