Anybody like to crab?
« on: April 28, 2014, 12:10:11 pm »
My husband and I plus our local daughters and their families went to visit our oldest daughter and her family this past weekend and we had a blast crabbing for blue crabs!  If you've never been, you're really missing something (in my opinion)  You tie a raw piece of chicken and a sinker onto a piece of line and throw it out into the water.  A crab (or sometimes even 2 or 3) will start eating on it.  You slowly pull the chicken in on the bottom and when you get it close enough someone else nets the crab and the chicken.  There was 4 or 5 of us crabbing and we got 21 keepers.  They were delicious too!  My youngest daughter and I had a contest going to see who got the most and I beat her 7 to 6!  lol  We've been before and gotten quite a few more crabs than this time but its always fun even if you're only catching a couple of dozen.  lol  Just curious to know how many ppl on here have gone crabbing?

Being from the East Coast I love all seafood, especially blue crab. It is one of the things I miss about being back home. No other food compares with the taste of crab to me.

Absolutely, but I live in the Northwest so we go for Dungeness Crab. My favorite trips are to go fishing on a charter boat and they do most of the work to get some crab to take home with the fish.

Here's one trip I took: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJyyZvBuK64

It sounds like fun, but Missouri is land locked. I've tried crab, while it's good, I'm not a fan of working that hard for something I've paid for :)

I've heard of this for catching crawdads though but never tried it out. It could be fun.

I grew up and live in northwest Florida on the coast but have never gone crabbing that I can remember - maybe as a child. My relatives had deep sea fishing charter boats and would catch crabs but all I did was enjoy eating them!

I did.  When we first get here in United State, (that around 17-18 years ago).  We went to the beach and did the same thing what you did.  Now I think no more for us to grab one now.  I think we need to find the new beach. :)

I've never crabbed myself but I grew up and still live near water so I've seen it plenty of times.
