Crabs

31 posts in this topic

I've never crabbed this late. Thinking about hitting it one more time b4 the weather turns. How late in the season is it worth going out?

 

I can't remember going that late either. Wondering how you made out ?

I havnt been out in about 2 weeks. But the crabs still run late october/november depending on water temps. But with Sandy, it washed every crab back down into the deep part of the bay.(my boat cant go out that far lol) I was out on my peir fishing yesterday and caught a 18 inch Rockfish. Love the Bay.

Had a beautiful day off but had to scrap my crabbing plans. Had a great summer tho.

 

Hope next year is just as good!

I haven't been crabbing for years, pretty much since I moved from the eastside and we sold our place down the beach .......

 

I did steam crabs tonight for the first time in years .......

 

they turned out really good and at about 1/2 the price - bought them from a roadsider that has set up shop a few miles from me ......

 

they did drop a lot of legs but I have been reading this evening and its said I should soak them in an ice bath about 15 minutes before putting them in the pot ......

 

did them on the side burner of my gas grill while cooking the rest of the meal .......

 

will definitely be doing it again next weekend .......

 

haven't given up the water altogether, caught about a dozen bass over 2 lbs up to 5 lbs last week in new hampshire :) ......

Had a day off and headed to the Severn Rvr. Got a late start and was horrendously hot. between 1015 and 1115 I pulled in 1 doz large, heavy crabs. It was enough for Ms Scaggs and I. Next time, I will hit it much earlier!
