Get out your bibs. Stone crab season begins today.

Alan Moore, co-owner of Moore's Stone Crab Restaurant, says the phone rings off the wall the first day of stone crab season. Last year offered mostly medium-sized claws; it will be hard to tell what's in store until a few days into the season.

Last season was a difficult one for many stone crabbers due to a number of factors, including the lack of cold fronts and a surging population of the octopus, a natural predator of stone crabs.

Stone crab season runs through May 15.
