Stone Crab Season

This has been a crazy season for Stone Crab. Their availability has never been so limited since I purchased Captain Jim’s 3 years ago. We are receiving only medium and large claws in limited supply since Christmas. Jumbo claws are nearly impossible to find. New Years was the last time we had Jumbos available. Most of what is available is previously frozen and we have decided to not go there. According to what we are being told, there is a huge population of octopus on both Florida coasts and they feed on stone crab. The theory is that the changing water temperature and currents are brings inordinate populations to our coasts…more so on the west coast. We will keep you posted if things change…but if you come by and we are out of stone crab you now know why. Call for Super Bowl availability…305-892-2812
