I bought some blues this week from a comm crabber I met.he pulled in some monsters including a 8.5" which ended up in my basket.they were caught in estero bay off of ft myers beach and sanibel island Florida!! I can tell you these crabs were packed with white meat and the claws were huge.I plan on posting a picture this week of the 8.5" shell.I wanted to get a picture before I cooked him but he wanted to fight me everytime I got near him with the ruler,meanwhile the others were climbing all over the place.I saw others in his baskets that were easily as big as the one I got !! Anyway I figured it was worth mention because it looks like Florida  doesn't have a very big crab on record as the biggest.

If you have microsoft office picture manager (or something similar perhaps) you can resize it.  Look under the tab at the top that says "picture", there should be a resize option.

RD, don't tell that jimmy he's just a bait crab. He'll perform for you a whole lot better if he thinks he's a GIGOLO. laugh Congratulations to you, that is one nice crab for sure. He deserves a little disco ball hanging in his peeler pot.
