Soft Shell Crab season is almost upon us

We're about 2 weeks away from the May full moon which means that soft shell crabs will soon be available from the 2011 season. (I know some are already available but I like the ones that come from a little farther north.) I think I'm going to have to buy some frozen as money is a little tight right now, and I can't swing a trip to the coast to get them fresh. Has anyone bought them frozen before from an online retailer? Are they comparable to what you could find at a good fishmonger near the ocean? I'm kind of sad that I won't be able to make it over to the coast this year...
