This might seem a stupid question.

Will I be able to do some Dungeness Crabbing here in Panama, Pensacola, Dauphin island, Mobile .......?
I know I might catch blue crabs instead.....

Thanks.

I was gonna say, they are a cold water crab,  on the northern west coast......the waters around Pensacola Florida are too warm........crabs tend to turn RED if the water is too warm...like in a  pot on the stove for instance.... Grin

Just so there's no confusion, FL changed their laws a couple of years ago, and now it's legal to take both claws, as long as they're legal size. I don't know about other states.

As far as crabbing for them, I'm not sure about up that way. Down here in South FL, they set out traps for day(s), then haul them in. Break of the claw(s), and toss the crab back in. If you were using regular collapsible traps, I'd guess that you'd get more blue crabs than anything else, since the stone crabbers let them soak for long periods of time. They also dive down this way for them, and harvest the claws.

Lets put this one to rest again,there has NEVER been a law that you could only take one claw off a stone crab,i'm 47 and have been hearing this all my life,a crab,stone or blue can eat just fine without claws
