Soft shell crabs?

Hi all,
Where can I buy fresh/live soft shell crabs in the Atlanta area? I'm in Midtown, but will venture OTP if necessary for a good buy.

        Not sure if Bob's talking about YDFM, but that's where I'd look.

          Luv soft shells. They only stay really soft for 48 hrs max. So I only eat them at the beach. Otherwise they are either semi soft or frozen yuck!!

            Check this out. They say they sell it


            but I didn't find an online ordering. You may want to contact them.
