Good afternoon.
I live on a tidal creek and am able to catch a few blue crabs most days in my pot. What is the easiest method to freeze the crabs for later use. Freeze them immediately without cleaning,  clean them and then freeze them, boil them and then freeze them? Also, should you freeze them in water within a plastic bag or without water? Any suggestions are appreciated.

The only way of freezing crabs successfully that I  know of is with a commercial, liquid. nitrogen blast freezer. It freezes the crab meat so fast at -80c to-196c
 that the water molecules don't have a chance to burst and make the meat watery.
