I reside in Bear, Delaware and do my crabbing at the Wye, Tred, and once went down to cox creek.  I like to hop around a little.  I usually go once every two weeks, in August I'll try to go weekly.

I crab at PLO, OC, and the Hanover Street Bridge over by Middle Branch Park in Baltimore, Maryland. I live in Northwest Baltimore and prefer the Hanover Street Bridge because I am a non-boater and it’s an easy place to get to from the city but I hate the up-kept of this area.  I guess most people do not believe in preserving our natural resources, unlike me, especially in the inner city area. It’s a shame to see good crabbing spot go to the dogs and listen to people talk about how bad the cities and youths are when they do not try to help make a different. Instead it looks like they are trying to take away the places that can make different. ---Just my 2 cents. Grin

My home port is Montegut, Louisiana down near the gulf of Mexico. This is about 75 miles south of New Orleans,and about 15 miles south of Houma, Louisiana. I was born and raised down here and fish blue crabs everyday in the Wonder Lake, Lake Tombour, Lake Barre, and adjoining bayous. I love to eat crabs and think this is a very resourceful
site. I hope everyone has a nice day and keep eating crabs. Cheesy

Kajun,

Thoroughbred,     
            I eat them mostly boiled with Cajun spices, because that is the way it is done down here in Louisiana. We also use them in many Cajun dishes.  I have been reading, and steamed blue crabs is the way to go up north. I defiantly will try it soon and some advice on what to put in it would be helpful. I know of a few people that actually steams crabs down here but you most here about the big crabboils with seasonings and fixings.  I commercial fish blue crabs everyday so I should be able to try some steamed crabs soon. Thanks! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

        So  Beer, Vinegar, and Joe#2 is the way to go with steaming big blue crabs. Sounds good but where can I get some Joe#2 down south. I dint remember seeing that in any store around here.  Huh Huh Huh

I only use beer and water to steam mine plus Old Bay or JO's

You can buy both JO's or Old Bay online, search Google.  I would also think that with all the crab boils etc down your way you could find something.  Maybe put some liquid in with the beer and water and get some dry and mix with kosher salt and add that to the crabs before steaming.

I have also always wanted to try steaming mudbugs instead of having them boiled but I can't get them alive up here they are already boiled.  Should work as well as crabs.

                tattoo;
              You are right mudbugs are crawfish. A cajun name given to this seafood a long time ago, because they live in the mud and crawl like bugs.
