Sunday afternoon in Madeira beach Florida having a glass of white wine and eating Stone crab.  I love the annual seafood festival in Madeira beach, but this time they outdid themselves. It was a wonderful event, the weather was great and lots of people showed up.

Stone crab at Madeira beachAs usual you have entertainment and a lot of food to choose from. I am a “picky” eater, so all this fried food is not really my deal, but this year I had a wonderful surprise, fresh right off the boat stone crab. Captain Brian Spaeth and the Gulf Partnership for marine fisheries had a crab stand at the seafood festival and there Stone crab was just awesome. Sweet and juicy and. . . . .

I love Stone crab!  I also had a chance to talk to Brian Spaeth for a while and I was fascinated and all the thinks that are involved in the Stone crab business. He has been out on his Stone crab boat a few times since the season opened on Oct. 15th and he is bringing in Stone crabs each time. . It was great so see the enthusiasm that this young Captain has and it is great to see that it is a local business right here in Madeira beach that gets all the credit.


If you live in Pinellas county or visit the St. Petersburg area, give Captain Brian Spaeth a call and see if you can buy some fresh Stone crab directly from him, trust me it is a treat you will remember.
