I was just in Northern Seattle.
I could see those mean bastards
crawling near the tide pools.

Their shells looked damaged.

I'm a rookie on dungeness; I've had fantastic ones and I've had really 'fishy' ones I didn't like so much. Oddly, the best ones I've had were cooked whole crab, and the worst ones were cooked legs only.

Maybe 100lbs? What would that weigh in meat? Maybe 30lbs?



Okay.

My "guy" has an oyster farm, I'll toss in a few dozen also.

Just PM me your address, next month you'll get it.

If you like it, send me some moo cow.

That is a good size halibut!
I thought mine was good too,
until the other charter boat pulled up
next to us with a 350+ pounder that a
17 year old young lady hooked into.
The whole crew had to help reel that in,
and the give it a head shot before they towed
it in.
She put us all to shame God bless her!
Alaska!

We found that a 6-iron carries too far, and an 8-iron gives too much back-spin...

Duck farming is a science, my friend.

We need to talk.

On the Oregon coast, I have ready access to Dungeness Crabs.


WTF? Those crabs are a long way from home. They belong up here. You know, at Dungeness!

P.S. I caught a 105 pound halibut once.


I'll be happy with a freezer full of rockfish!

The wife is a "Baltimoron" and her family lives on the Chesapeake. The inlaws always put on a "crab feast" when we go there. It's great, but you'd starve to death trying to eat those blue crabs. The calories expended picking them far exceed the calories ingested. Only the beer will make you gain any positive calories.

During bad years they always scoff at crabs which aren't local and come from the Gulf of Mexico. I can remember as a kid, my parents used to have a place in SW Florida. I'd always see blue crabs, and one time I was fishing in this canal where there were blue crabs just lining the bottom. Every bait you'd throw out a crab would come up and grab it and just hang on while you reeled them in. That was 30 years before I heard my inlaws scoff at those crabs. We always just threw them back...now I wish we'd have eaten some!! LOL.

Not a big fan of oysters myself (other than the Rocky Mountain persuasion), but my wife loves 'em. I like 'em fresh off the boat on the half shell on ice, but I can't take them cooked.

Maybe I just never had them prepared right. Taste kinda skunky to me.

My pleasure! This is what it's all about! All that hard work and cussin' in the sun...but at the end of the day you get to enjoy the fruits of all that labor!

Tradin' makes it even better, because then you get the best of all worlds!

Well that is true.

But,,, If you get the Blue Claw Softshells
cooked properly, you will never frown on
the Baltimoreans again.

Flour,Garlic,Butter purist.
It is a delicacy.
Chreme de la chreme.
Why do you think George Washington
chose that location?

Toss'em on a grill, when they're ready, their shells "pop" open.

Pry the suckers apart, little garlic butter and enjoy.

They're a favorite "cook out" food.

Oh, the wife turned me onto those! Boy oh boy are they GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!

I'd have never thought that in a million years until I tried it. OH MAN!!

And, I spelled it "Baltimoron" as a joke. I guess it's an inside joke. She'll smack me when I say that. LOL

Are we talking wholesale prices, or retail, on the crabs?

I'm trading at wholesale prices. Retail prices you can add about $3/lb.

That's why I'm talking about large lots. Anything less than about 100lbs isn't worth it because the costs sky rocket (per pound).
