Looking at some old threads I came across one discussing catching Stone Crabs. I've lived in Naples all of my life and it never occurred to me to dive for them, duh. I probably shouldn't admit to that. Is anyone out there doing this, does anyone have any tips or spots they are willing to share? Sounds like a great excuse to dive.
Thank you all, I know about thier ability to pinch, I worked on a commerical crab boat as a kid. The danger is that they are so slow it's easy to become complacent about the possibilty of one catching you. Once one does you do not forget. I've seen them crush hard rock like it was chalk. I'm going to try some of the rock outcropings around Naples, Thanks again.
