Buzzard,

  The only time I see that clear jelly like substance come from a crab is when it is a papershell.  I remember a trip last year where I had one in the basket the first run down the line and traps.  When I started culling I noticed the substance was everywhere.  Another crab crushed his claw and another claw went into his shell.  The crab was all but dead.  When I was able to get him out it was dropping out.  Maybe bc the muscle and fat tissue (meat) hadn't developed.  Hence, when papershells are cooked they are full of water.  I could be completely wrong here.  Just my theory.

Andrew

P.S. Recycle the paper.  Throw them back.

Isn't the clear gray gel what all the hubbub with Barry Bonds was about?

I think it's Grecian Formula, especially designed for older male crabs that want to pick up younger female crabs.   Cool
