    Sanibel Real Estate
    October 15th, 2011 marks the beginning of Stone Crab season. The shores off of Sanibel Island will be dotted with stone crab trap bouys as commercial fishermen hunt these prized crabs. Here's to a great season for fishermen and we look forward to Stone Crab Claws on local Sanibel & Captiva menus. Stone Crabs are legal for harvest from October 15 to May 15.
