My friend Garry and I went to go out crabbing Saturday. We got out during very high tide. Had to muscle the boat off the trailer because the water was so high. We finally got the boat off, and then we headed out. We saw allot of black smoke, I thought one of the factories where on fire. We got out past the Stony creek bridge near the black rocks and set three traps. Then RRIIIINNNNGGGG!!!!! My phone goes off... It was Garry's dad yelling at us to head in quick because there was a water main break, he was saying all of this sewage, chemicals, and poop was coming are way and to watch out for color changes in the water. Then 5 minutes later my Dad calls me, because his dad called him. My dad is yelling at me to come in so we did. Not a single crab caught. We muscled the boat back up on the trailer and drove to Garryís house. Went in their back yard and watched the news. Dundalk was being flooded. We went to Kent Island and got 3 doz heavy males, and two soft shell crabs. My shirt got wet so I wasnít wearing one the whole time. I had to flip the crabs because he didnít want the grease to get on his arms. So I flipped them, and my tummy got burned. Oh well. We went back in the back yard after we cooked them. We used allot of pancake batter. I started to chomp down on it, it was OK. After I ate the whole crab but a leg or two. He lets his cousin have a bite of his, she just moved here from Detroit. And she said the crab wasnít finished. He looks at his crab and itís still raw! Then I look at whatís left of mine and mine is raw. I just successfully ate my first raw soft shell crab. It was good.

Try frying after cleaning them in 375 degree Canola oil for about 3 minutes per side depending on the size and sprinkling some crab seasoning on them after they are done frying.Then toast some white bread,cut up some tomatoes,make a sandwhich with the softy,tomato and tartar sauce.Gets no better than that!  Grin

John,
     You're talking to BF here. Finish you thought, and then cook them in a pan with some oil. If not he'll have sushi again.

Interesting post...I liked it. 

I have used pancake batter on other items...never crabs, though..and it is good, but it is a thick, puffy shell...not good for crabs.  Unless you like it like that..then there is nothing wrong with that!

Pancake batter is what they used to use when making fried hard crabs except they would use ginger ale instead of water.

Let's see if there are any real oldtimers out there.  Any of you remember Kozy's Tavern in Highlandtown.  They served the best fried hard crabs for 75 cents.

Here's an old one. How about Jake Snyder's, next to Hanover street bridge.  Best crabs, crab cakes and softcrabs ever. Used to be a big victorian house with a great outside porch to sit and eat crabs.

I lived in Mt Winans in the 50's and my parents would take me there for dinner sometimes.  I seem to remember a seaplane at the pier.
