Probably the most delicious and elusive catch from our crabbing expeditions are the famous Stone Crab, this tasty crab is really only in season now through May and into early June. This crab makes its way up the inter coastal waterways from Florida during this time, and if you are lucky some of the pots may be home to one of these amazing little guys.
