Steve,
   I agree with what you say about the shadow.Like the posts before you say its hard to get t good measurement with a tape,ruler ,ect. I agree 100%I held the ruler up off the crab(Still alive ,didn't want to get bit well taking to pic.) This is what makes it look like 8 and what ever inches.So this is my problem.I took a bad pic. of the crab.If you hold camera at a bad angel that will show a bad reading.Its tough to do when they are alive.So take the pic. for what it worth .But my family and I know it was a 9" crab.I know next time(if there is one) I will keep the shell, or take pic. when the crab is dead,plus take more than one pic.Like they say you learn by your mistakes.
Thank You All For Your Time

Pappy,

Keep up the good work... Next time there will be no doubt I am sure... Can't wait till the Bush lights up, tired of running south.  BTW, biggest two crabs I ever caught were north, Bush and Bohemia Rivers.  You are right when you said your personal record is what matters.  Let's go crabbin'...

Here's one better yet! Maybe all shells should be mailed into Crabguy and he can measure & post Official pics to be fair, priority mail is only $4.95 and if you want it back just included postage  for the return, just my 2 cents to try and put an end to bad pics and posts.

I must say that when and if I do catch that 9 inch crab or more,, Nobody and I mean nobody is getting it except for the gentleman ' Crabbeer ' knows to have it mounted.. I would post my pic and would be happy to have everyone debate about it..'''  How i measured it,,, Shadows,,, Camera Angle,,,, Etc ;;;; ''', thats part of the fun... Now if I ever make it to a get together with everyone, I would then bring it along to show.. Thats my plan,, and I'm sticking too it..

pappy, you are right, there are definitley clicks on these forums, just keep on crabbing and have a great time doing it.  all of the crabs shown are monsters, congrats to you all who have submitted.

seaweed, i agree with you bro.  a tape measure is a tough measure stick on a crab shell.  what are the other options available for measuring?

Just to let you Yankees know what you're missing north of the Mason Dixon line, here's a pic of a typical Flori-duh crab. I've had this one a few years and we're catching so many bigger ones now that we usually throw back the small ones like this.

I'm in Islander.. what time do we leave?  I'll get my Golden Corral buffett frequent-eater pass, and we'll head down to FL to have early dinner with the blue-hairs!

Now about this 9-1/4..... Is this the "learnin'" or "lyin'" part of this forum?  I don't doubt the picture, but is the really typical?

Seaweed,

I doubt that its typical but we can be at beach bum's house in about 10-12 hrs. Do you want to take you boat or mine?  My Chevy Avalanche is full of gas and ready for flight. Grin

Well he's got 10-12 hrs to round up a bunch of his so-called, "typical" crabs for our inspection.  Now, I just need to find 10-12 hrs of free time, and we are off...
