Went today. 40 big females, 7-8 inches females, 20 males 6-7 inches. Is this out of control? Think everything is out of balance. Big Females never are this prevalent. Is next year the crab jubilee?

Thats a good thing, females means baby's. Baby's means lots more crabs for us and the fish.
i guess the ban on females over the Fall/Winter worked

+1 here. I honestly think they should suspend all crabbing for 2 to 3 years and let the population increase. If your caught crabbing in that time period 6 mo jail minimuim. Need to do som,ething for the future

Hello, I'm the Fatcrab. I am new to this site and would like to share info. I am a commercial crabber and I just attended a study on pond rasing crabs. They say a female produces 4500+ and can produce up to four times a season. pretty wild huh? but anyways The next time i log in I will post pics and fishing trips of the best day i've ever had a 5500lb day. How many crabs do you catch and what do they pay for them where your at? I'm on the MS Gulf Coast. Well till next time
