 anybody  care  to  point me in the right direction?  went out to the bay and couldn't find a single crab.  There  must be a hundred commercial pots out there but no crabs for a simple chicken necker  and the in-laws.  this is going to be a long week. Cry

yup listen to D,  Gene will take care of you... and like D said can't beat the price and quality....

Half Fast Seafood 252-202-6469 

he will even meet you somewhere or you can go do down to MP 8 by wright memorial turn left onto Collington road go back over first bridge and you willl see a sign on th eleft that says endurance seafood.. think that is his inlaws business but he runs out of there....
BTW if you want a great dinner for you and the wife  just before you cross the little bridge there is a little victorian house on the left that is a restuarant called Collinton Cafe very very good for a nice dinner for you and the Mrs if you can get out w/o kids  Smiley  I do recommend you make reservations thought.
My wife and go there every time we are down OBX and eat there for our anniversary dinner in June.... Wink

I sent  Gene a  drunken bmail  last night.  I'm not gonna bother him in the phone for advice,  but if the in-laws want me to grab a bushel I'll call.   I'm about an hr  from him but might go into town one day soon.  I'm just blown away that we didn't see a single crab Undecided

Sounds like an attempt to cover up your ineptness.   I'll believe it when we hear it from Gene.

 well,  so far I drug the boat down and the water is so shallow  it's hard to use it, I  busted off a piece of my wife's car that's less  than two months old driving down some extremely flooded roads,  internet is spotty at best,  and I cracked my cell phone screen on the tile floor.  But, I  brought plenty of rum,  so  yea I'm doing pretty good so far! laugh

so if you go down Gene's way leave the rum home.....
