Default NJ State record Blue Claw 8 1/2"

According to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection?s Division of Fish and Wildlife, a new state record blue crab was caught off Brick, Ocean County on May 21. Martin Winnicki, also of Brick, caught an 8?-inch blue crab that ties the current state record caught off Manahawkin in 1995. Both of these records remain ?-inch shy of the historic record taken from Delaware Bay in 1980.
Winnicki was crabbing off Mantoloking Road when he pulled up the monster crab. Bunker served for bait.
The blue crab's abundance, beautiful coloration (a brilliant blend of olive-green, blue and red), aggressive temperament and delicious flavor make it a favorite of recreational crabbers in New Jersey. In addition to its recreational value, the blue crab also supports an important commercial fishery. Of all New Jersey's marine fish and shellfish, more effort is expended in catching the blue crab than any other single species. Blue crabs are abundant all along the Jersey coast, in tidal creeks and rivers, and in shallow saltwater bays from the Hudson River to Delaware Bay. Although most small boats are ideal for reaching crabbing areas, almost any bank, bulkhead, bridge or pier bordering tidal waters can provide excellent crabbing.
