I believe I already know the answer guys but I'm asking just to verify, I'm headed down to CT in the am to see if I am fortunate enough to get a few blues. What is the best method to keep the crabs good to eat by the time I get back home in the evening?
I was going to bring a cooler with ice and put them on that with the lid cracked for circulation, would this be sufficient? Thanks in advance for any input. Todd

I wouldn't use ice cubes, but rather 1/2 gallon milk jugs filled with water and frozen.

Put ice in the cooler, cover it with the plastic bag and put layers of the newspapers, leave the drain open while you are crabbing and when ready to go home, close the drain and drive safely home.
I do this all the time (when I catch crabs  Smiley) and I didn't loose any.

I use cooler not wooden bushel just because I don't have a truck.

Make sure no crabs are belly up when you store them

Clean them , put them in a big ziplock storage bag & pack on ice, no mess when you get home
