    I seem to be in a bit of a dilemma.  I have yet to figure out what a bushel of mixed crabs truly is.  I always saw crabs as 1s and 2s.  If it's not a 1, its a 2.  A 5" crab is a 2.  A 5.75" crab can be either depending on if it's full or not.  I see mixed crabs are sold for less than a bushel of 2s.
  Because of this I figured a mixed bushel was male and female crabs mixed together or something like that.  I can't imagine a mixed bushel being a mix of 1s and 2s cause it shouldn't be cheaper then, considering 2s would cost more with no chance of larger crabs being in there....solve this for me please

I would say mixed males would be 1's, 2's and whites. Mixed crabs could be all of them plus females.

Culls/ whiteys. MD crabsdelivered sells them on fb everyday. You can buy bushels of them at lindys for $40-$80 depending on the week. My buddy usually buys 2 bushels on the way to the campgound every weekend. You can honestly stand around the fire and pull the meat out with the legs and never pop off the shell. They are horrible but easy eatin. Lol

So if they are easy to eat and people like them.....what gives you the right to say they are HORRIBLE. Who the F do you think you are to decide what is good and what is [curd]. Maybe it's time you started keeping your stupid opinions to yourself. You aren't smart enough to pick up on the hints that the members have tried to give you, so I would guess you're just an idiot. Why not try and be sociable instead of obnoxious....you may actually find a friend or two. Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Trash?  Come to think of it i dont see too many positive comments from you either einstein. I figured you got one smartass remark for ever crab you catch and the way it looks your way over your quota this year Grin

I love eating flexors. I have always claimed to love a 7" flexer. Whiteys are a whole different crab. Im not a big fan of air crabs full of water with minimŕl seasoning. I feel like they are HORRIBLE. Its an opinion. Sorry if you dont like people having opinions. Maybe thats your thing. Since you took crabs back to chuck because they were too dirty and demanded clean ones id say whiteys are right up your alley. As far as a braggart.. I havnt even posted my last 3 trips.. Let alone post a pic of the biggest crab i ever caught. Im just keeping that for myself. Anyway. Glad you got that off your chest. Seems like you've been letting it build up a lil too long. Remember.., deep breaths.  Deep breaths. Would love to chat more but i have lines to bait. Someones CRABBING in the morning!!!!! Woooohooooo!!

If the crabs in the mixed bushel are from the Patapsco river, they're probably #2s.    Grin

They are too good to be in a mixed bushel.

Ok, got ya, I just have a hard time letting something go for less for no good reason.  And fp, I didn't find your comment offensive.  I personally don't care for the pickiness some have for crabs.  To expect all your crabs to be full and heavy at all times, all season is just rediculous.  I don't really get the whole trash crab debate, maybe I just like them too much.  I open every crab and enjoy it.  Havnt opened an empty one yet.  Honestly we are arguing about an ounce or so in the crab.

That's how I grade my mixed males.  If I am doing mixed males, as they come overboard, measured, squeezed and in a basket.  It is illegal to mix culled males and females while on boat into the same basket.
