Can you believe how big this crab is? What a catch!

It's always surprising to see watch fisherman will find "under the sea". Sometimes it's nothing but a rock or a dinglehopper... But not this time!

One crabber in New York just pulled up a catch of a lifetime, and it looks like Sebastian gained some weight.

Holy Crab... It's a Big One!

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation is proud to announce there's a new record holder in New York. Hunter Tracy is credited for netting a monster blue crab, measuring 7-3/16" in carapace length.

Take it from us, that's nothing to be crabby about.

This is a huge feat, considering hard shell blue crabs have to be at least 4.5 inches to take in New York. Soft shell only have to be 3.5 inches. So a crustacean over 7 inches is a great catch for any crabber in New York.

No person shall possess or land any blue crab (Callinectes sapidus) with a carapace width less than four and one half inches in length for hard shell blue crabs, three and one half inches in length for soft shall blue crabs, and three inches in length for peeler or shedder blue crabs.

The NYS DEC wants to congratulate Hunter on his accomplishment and welcome him (and the blue crab) to the history books.

Where there was one, there's sure to be many more like this king crab. You can always get more information about crabbing and other types of fishing in New York on the DEC's website.
