Last crabbing trip of the year

Last crabbing trip of the year

PostBy: coalkirk On: Fri Oct 02, 2009 10:55 am

Yesterday I took off and went crabbing with a buddy probably for the last time this year. We went to the Elk river in Elkton, Md. Caught a bushel of the biggest and heaviest crabs of the year. The biggest was 8 3/4" from point to point. They were delicious! :cheers:

My Dad has boat and he takes it down Chincoteague at least once a year. Went with him once and we all went out crabbing. The nieces and nephews loved it. Was a good time as they were kept quite busy and it's so easy to do. I'm sure you know how fishing can be with young kids if nothing is biting and other problems if there's a lot of them.

Blue claws are better than lobster!

I spent all week in RI. Ate lobster three nights. Lobster is overrated.

Blue Crab is better than lobsta
But Oysters from the Wellfleet flats are better...
Especially just an hour out of the water...
And a cold Bass beer in the other hand

I love oysters. Especially steamed. Here's a pic my buddy took and sent to me today. Yea that's me rigging a trap and looking like a reject from the Deadliest Catch.
