Yep, welcome!  Keep em alive till you cook em.  You can steam em like we do up here or boil em and you can clean em before you cook or cook em up just the way they are when you catch em.  Seasoning is key.  A lot of us are fanatics and have our particular favorite ways of doing things.  Learn about  how to keep em alive in the transporting threads.  Keep em cool. let em get air and don't put em where they go under in fresh water... have fun on the site here... you're at the right place to develop your skills and knowledge on crabbing  Grin

You may want to check out the regs for Texas. Size of legal crabs, point to point not leg to leg, how many you can keep,
type of gear you can use, license requirements. Just a suggestion. You may also want to concentrate your Texas questions in the Forum section called "Gulf Coast Crabbing".
