Tassie delights

Rumour has it that some FFF members are spearos. It's time to come out of the closet.

Yeezuz :shock:

I was looking at the price of frozen craytails down there (when it was off season for crays) and they weren't cheap. None were anywhere close to that size.

I asked the lady at the Stanley Aquarium what the giant crabs taste like and she looked at me kinda blankly, and said: "Crab."

we used to be given the giant crabs by the fisherman back home when they were worth nothing but they get good bucks for them now ,the meat it quite sweet probably more like a muddy than cray.

Is that a mutant?
Or do they really grow that big if left alone long enough?
