It's October 15th ...Let's Get Stoned!!! Stone Crab Season Opens Today!

By
Real Estate Agent with American Caribbean / Christie's International Real Estate SL0624654

October 15th...one of my favorite days of the year.  Why? you ask?....Well it's time to get stoned....   No, no, no, put down your smokeless hitters and step away from the bong and turn down the Jack Johnson songs ....we're not talking 420, but Stone Crabs!!

 

October is my favorite time of year here in the Keys.  The obsessive heat has dulled its edge, and the Northern breezes start to glide in, making it, to me, one of the greatest places to be, especially when you are out on the water.

 

Turn up the Buffett, crack open a Key West Sunset Ale, light up a Partagas, and steer your craft through the turquoise and indigo hued waters to the bounty that lies within your traps.  Sometimes, I just like to take it slow and troll while I go from trap to trap, usually snagging a Mackerel or two...and ponder..yes dinner is gonna be good tonight.

 

The breeze picks up and the smell of the salt fills you with each breath, you look around and see land to your port and open water to your starboard and realize that God must have been stoned when he created the Keys....Nothing could be this beautiful and serene that was created straight.

 

 

All I can say is that if you have never experienced Fall in the Keys, you do not know what you are missing.   Keep your falling leaves, keep your chilly temperatures, and for all means keep your Snow!!!

 

So break out the melted butter, break out the remoulade, break out the mallets and break out a Lifestyle.  It's October 15th in the Keys and the BEST part of the Season has just begun!

 

Let me help you lead the Lifestyle that you have dreamed about.

 

Work with an Agent that will show you how to live the Lifestyle!  Put the experience and expertise of The Conchquistador to work for you!

     My sister (in Charlotte, NC) married a guy from upstate New York.  All he ever talked about was Maine lobster, nothing was better, etc.

    I took some claws up to Charlotte on a road trip.  They were the first thing I took out of the car when I arrived at their house.

     After he dipped the claws into some hot butter and took a taste, he looked like a man who had found religion. 

    Today he is a Stone Crab disciple.  He called me last week to ask when the claws will be in season; can I ship some to him.

Fred - Thank you for your comment.  Yes, they are fantastic, and of course you can ship them!!

There is a great place I recommend for shipping, Golden Rule Seafood 305.235.0661.  Just let them know where to send 'em. And to make it complete, throw in one of their a delicious Key Lime Pies!

Thanks for the tip, Mykael.   I am close to Apalachicola, but if I can't find a shipper there, I will take you up on "Golden Rule Seafood".
