I've never eaten anything but Maryland crabs since I always catch my own.  Only time I've ever bought them was at Phillips Seafood in Ocean City MD during the summer so I assume they were caught locally??  Huh  Some rivers in the state do produce better crabs IMHO.  Why don't you send a couple of those Florida mumbos my way on dry ice and I'll do a taste test.  Wink
    I have had Blue Crabs from DE,MD,Texas,louisianna,Florida     personally my favorites come from two rivers in MD.As far as Phillips goes they use the swimmer crab from the Phililines I believe.I have had it and it wasn't bad to me in a crab cake.If you ate crabs there they probably were local,but they have their own plant over there because the proffit wasn't what they wanted it to be.All of the crabs I have eaten were good except for the all you can eat at a place in Rock Hall I wont mention.They were pure junk.It was the first and last time I ever ordered all you can eat crabs.PM me I will tell you my 2 favorite rivers for taste and quality.

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...
