Thanks for the report and real glad to hear they are back!

I haven't gotten any in the last few years by New Smyrna either.

I'll give it another try!

 these crabs were big ,heavy,and thick shelled,and as full of meat as any i ever seen....with out a doubt a blue ribbon at the fair....but,the taste was only a 8.2......they were caught in apart of the river that is about 100% fresh water because of the dumping from lake O......still better than a long period of notin'....

i ate crabs 2-3 times a month while staying on the wye for 11 summers......there is no doubt in my mind that crabs do vary in taste with each catch......remember the population in a river is replenished by crabs coming in from saltier waters......only explanation i know of.. Huh   Huh
