Stone crabs -2013 season

Veggo | | Oct 16, 2013 07:16 AM

This wharf rat always hangs out at the docks around Oct. 15. Trap pulls yesterday were disappointing, about the same as last year which was the worst since 2005. Bummer. As of today, large/jumbo are $17/lb at A.P. Bell in Cortez, likely to go up. Pinchers Crab Shack offers a 1 lb. dinner of mediums for $28, $35 for large. Moore's Stone Crab restaurant on Longboat Key has 3 stone crab menus, each with different prices. At the Columbia on St. Armands Circle, a 1 lb. order of medium/large is $32 - used to be around $25.
Not an encouraging start.
