Thank you all for taking the time to check it out.  :)

Morgan, Folks on the "Around the Campfire" board told me they taste just like lobster if you cut um into cubes, boil, then dip in butter. I didn't believe it until I tried it. Darn they were right!  -C- The small ones are great for eating, and the big ones for backing.  :OK

Hawk, never heard that, but maybe the saltwater variety is a warm water fish? I've never fished for um here in the winter, but maybe they stop hittin when the weather gets cold.  (S)

Never tried em boiled like that, but I need to! I’ll eat em fried but my family thinks they’re too chewy.
