soft shell crabs-- in season yet? where to buy?

Anybody seen soft shell crabs for sale at any seafood markets? Preferably near Echo Park, but I'm willing to schlep.

many thanks!

  1. I asked earlier....

    Haven't been able to follow through on any of the recs, just yet ...

    1. I got some at McCall's Meat and Fish in Los Feliz, they were excellent, if pricey at $8 each. I've gotten them before at Fish King in Glendale, they were just a little less.

      1. LA Fish in Downtown LA, 4th & Central ish area, big building, you can not miss.

        1. I got them at Fish King in Glendale last week at $4.95 each. They were great.

          1. Bought them frozen in past from the busy open market in/on Redondo Beach Pier near the arcade (sorry, name escapes me) and Ranch 99 markets. Sorry, may not help you in Echo Park though.
