Indian River Blue Gold...

« on: September 03, 2017, 12:34:27 PM »

What a difference a day makes. Calm seas, light breeze enough to keep to bugs away, and then there's the important part - the Indian River Blue Gold. Left the dock at 06:20, jogged out to the grounds, line in the water, ran it on the incoming tide, pulled up, jogged back & the moring lines were tied off back in the harbor by 09:45. Filled the tanks to our quota of a bushel...maybe a bit more. Final count was 77, bringing the 2017 season total to 971 thus far. Hit our quota in under 3 hours. The fishery will be pleased(as are we!) Pics tell the story  Grin

That is a nice table of cooked crabs. Looks like quite a few people had a feast.

Thanks for sharing your report and photos.

Hey RICK :

 WTG on the nice haul of fine looking Crabs. I have a question for you.
Do you kill your crabs with an ice pick before removing the shell or do
you just rip the shell off with him still alive?
I know some guys will numb them in ice water and remove the shell.
I used to kill them with an ice pick thru the top of the shell into his brain
and then de-shell them. I put a pair of heavy rubber gloves on now to
do the de-shelling. One thing can be said for clean before steaming method
is the seasoning is on the crab meat not on his shell, IMHO it is the only way
to do a crab, get the mess over with first. They also keep better in the frig !

Thanks Rick for a great report and great pictures KUDOS TO YOU GUY !
