That's a good question. Biggest I have ever caught was a 10 incher on the Patapsco. I read once that the DNR caught some 11 inchers while doing their crab survey so I would guess it is somewhere around that size but I am sure there is a recorded record somewhere.

I found this on the Maryland DNR website.  Cool


"The largest crab recorded from Maryland was a male measuring 9 inches; however bigger crabs (10-11 inches) have been captured in DNR crab surveys."

The obvious question is, why didn't you take this crab to a DNR office or weighing station and have it certified as a MD record? Huh It appears that the current recreational crabbing record is 9".

How long ago did you eat it?  Considering the recent sewage spill(s) in the Patapsco, you might want to start thinking about recycling....Wink

If you read "Beautiful Swimmers" Lester Lee Comm. Trot Liner was  catching 10" crabs on the Wye River in the sixties. People thought they were a different sub species.

Do you have a picture of said crab?

Louisiana is the world's most fertile blue crab grounds.  No where else in the world can you expect to catch 10 inch plus crabs on a regular basis.  No where else can you expect to catch the number of crabs that you catch in Louisiana.  If Louisianans saw crabbing as a recreational activity, as the folk in Maryland and nearby do, you'd start seeing pictures of 14 inch point to point crabs very soon.

East coast crabbers who have crabbed all their lives and not caught a 10 incher are angry and jealous.

They say the recIt weighed 1.1 pounds and had a 10.72-inch-wide shell. VIMS crab expert Jacques van Montfrans (L) and Eastern Shore taxidermist Arty Meredith display what may be the largest crab ever recorded from Chesapeake Bay. The big "jimmy" dwarfs most Chesapeake Bay blue crabs.Aug 14, 2004ord for Blue Crab is 10.72 inches for the Chesapeake Bay
