Costco had a big display for Phillips frozen crab cakes at the store here in Tampa. When I brought them home I read the small print that said product of the Phillippines. Bummer.

A pier right around the corner from the Stoney Creek Bridge


Sorry to hear about your foot Aclobat


Yea a broken foot sucks. I have the boot off but any side to side motion hurts(so rocking in a boat is out of the question) Im hoping next weekend i'll be able to head out again. I just started using Eel as bait to. More pricey but i heard it holds up better and stinks more then chicken necks. Also got some of these scent bags (kind of like what u see in the deadliest catch)

Crabs are running great. Went out early this morning. Still not as big but they are heavy. Not one female either. Crab count was 53.

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?

Later season crabs tend to be much fatter. As long as the water temp stays some what warm. Although im going to take crabbing out for this year due to Sandy washing everything back down the Bay.

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!
