I keep telling myself I'm going to eat one of those one day. But I don't know if I could bring myself to wearing one of those bibs or not!!
When you are camping no bibs are required just crack them open and got for it.

Yes, we ate blue crabs in Baltimore. I caught them using a hand line with a big battery clip as a sinker that also served as a way to hold the bait (cut up eel). The crabs just grabbed the the bait and I just slowly raised the line with the crabs holding onto the bait of their own, not troubled by the fact that they were being lifted up through the water. Before they broke the surface, we would scoop them with a net. Kind of like fishing without a hook and counting on the fish to hold on tight. I sure do miss eating those crabs. Don't get me wrong, I also love the big Dungeness crabs we get here in the NW, but there's something so satisfying about picking those delicious morsels out of a blue crab steamed with Old Bay. As you know, eating crabs in the East is a very social activity. Put some newspaper on the picnic table, dump out the crabs, and away you go.

We caught a big Dungeness crab off Guemes Island last year using a rented rowboat and a crab pot. Our young boys named the crab Larry and we kept him in a bucket with cold water. When suppertime came, my wife and I looked at each other anxiously. But our boys thought eating Larry was a great idea and he was delicious. I'm still puzzling over whether their reaction was a good or bad thing...

I've already cheated death so I can't do the boiling pot thing but I must say they sure taste good!

I got introduced to blue crabs in '72 after relocating to Maryland from Iowa. We'd go down to the Naval Academy with some string, a net and raw chicken, sit on the rocks and do some crabbin'. Back then a bushel of crabs cost a little more than half of what we paid for a dozen when we returned in '11. Got to say, the first guy to eat one of those critters had to be darned hungry! Ugly!

Also miss great lobsters. For several years we'd put in an advance order to Finest Kind Lobsters and meet their trucks in local parking lots to claim our live prize.

Best we can do here in the middle of Colorado out of cell phone range is the occasional Rocky Mountain Oyster dinner. Yum!
