For years I've tried my luck at softcrabbing around the Goodwin Islands, with mixed success. Thinking back, I've always missed the first major shed.

Can someone shed;-) some light on the time frame for the first run of softshells?

Like already said. First full moon in May. From a week before to 2 weeks after (Give or take.) It's mother nature.

I know nothing about Locust trees:eek2: , but with the full moon on the 2nd, I feel a Cinco De Mayo crab party in the works. :eatdrink:
