Hello All,

Some of the Dungeness Crab I'm catching have softer shells. I imagine that is due to a recent molt. Do I keep these or toss them back? I have never experienced that when purchasing commercially harvested crabs.

Throw them back, not worth eating, the new meat has not filled into the new shell yet.
