Soft Shell Crabs

All -
I think it's a bit early to be expecting soft shells around Boston in late April as I've heard they really don't appear in the Chesapeake till after the first full moon in May (?), but anyone found soft shells from more southern environs in any stores recently?

Used to buy them at Fresh Pond Seafood in Cambridge... Any updates on Fresh Pond re-opening in Arlington, or any other crab sources in the western 'burbs?

Thanks, and looking forward to shad & roe from CT. in a few weeks.
Best to all!
