You all need to try wye river crabs. You may change your mind about what a good crab taste likes. Not bashing anyone just saying.

i ate wye river crabs,all caught within 1mile from where i lived, once or twice a month,for ten seasons.......crabs do not always taste the same,even though they are caught in the same local..

I just had some crabs from Florida and, to me, they lacked flavor. They were good but.......
Ct crabs are good and I've had Wye crabs that I thought were better. I think the cooler water sets the flavor. I'm sure water quality has something to do with flavor too!
I used to Lobster in CT and our Lobsters were good but I thought Canadian Lobster tasted better than the ones I was catching. Again, cooler water?

I also agree JO#1!

cooler=more fat but salinity and diet also contribute.  Many in md are off clam beds and in brackish.

The best tasting crabs are from the wye river in maryland.  Ive tasted them from all over and will never do that again.  Its wye or nothing!  Couldnt even give me another crab from elsewhere.  Plus Im one of the better crabbers on that river.  Commercial crabbers watch me for a reason but they dont have the balls to move around when necessary.  Same old spot year in and year out for them.  Props to boog powell the ex baseball player, he does well on the wye when I see him there.  Everybody has there secret depths at which to catch them but for me 6 to 18 feet most of the year.  6 feet of course i prefer cause less pulling with the traps.

Just my opinion, but I find it extremely hard to believe that commercial guys are watching you and your pull up traps. laugh laugh laugh  As for being one of the better crabbers on the Wye that is a extremely bold statement.  Posting on this forum you are in the company of some of the best blue claw crabbers in the world, myself excluded...

Well it might be a bold statement but after 25+ years crabbing there Ive learned a few things about that river.  And also learned things from you guys that I will be using.  Give yourselfs a tap on the back.  Ive had commercial guys watching me and come back the following week and be right in the spot I was doing well at.  Also coming into the boat ramp with my catch and seeing what others had done shows me Ive done better then most.  Again bold yes I admit but its f****** winter and I miss it.  So I just wanted to get you guys stered up!  But come on down and we can throw 1 hundred dollars in a hat and have a challenge.  Just like deadliest catch. Then I will buy you a beer!  and shake your hand.

A fool and his money are soon parted, there are quite a few amazingly well schooled people that schlep down from Pa. and even Jersey that I would put money on.  Some of these guys have rigs that you can't help but envy.

  Seriously, I know you just registered on the forum, but get to know some of these people before you start throwing down.  There are guys on here that have been crabbing longer than you have been alive...and they are 99.9% good people
