hard shell crabs

We will be coming down for the Easter decoy show and wondering if we will be able to get fresh hard shell crabs?

That's a little early - usually we start seeing fresh local crabs in late May - June.

While I agree with the previous poster it may be a little early for local crabs, Easter falls very late this year. The local seafood restaurants are pretty resourceful getting crabs and will surely be on their game for the decoy show. My suggestion would be to call a reliable establishment like Gary Howard Seafood and check on the availability. Their number is 757-336-5178. Not saying they are the only option, just one that stands out. Good Luck.
