Stone crab season opens Oct. 15 in Florida
Stone crab claws must be at least 2 3/4 inches in length to be harvested legally, and claws may not be taken from egg-bearing female stone crabs. Recreational harvesters are allowed to use up to five stone crab traps, and there is a daily bag limit of 1 gallon of claws per person or 2 gallons per vessel, whichever is less.
