This is wrong on many levels.  Not a lot of people have money.  Most people live paycheck to paycheck.  Those who are out of a job right now aren't "chilling, enjoying the vacation and eating seafood".  And how many Americans can afford to take a 1 month+ vacation at the drop of a hat?  I personally know people who are $hitting their pants right now.  Responsible business owners, entrepreneurs, and hard working employees.  None of them are "enjoying the vacation".

I fully agree Ray.  I don't know anyone who was working before all this is considering this a vacation.

X29,997. I'm sure the rest of the 30,000 members on here, with the exception of ONE apparently, would agree as well. So I will save them all the trouble of having to respond to such a ridiculous comment. Shut down of work is devastating, and will be extremely destructive before it is all said and done.

I'm not saying everyone is experiencing the same thing.  Nor do I cheer at the struggles of anyone.  Why are 3 of you folks (Ray, D, Wallco, and only one of you are watermen) quoting a 16 day old post when nobody knew the extent of the shutdown 16 days ago.  And why aren't you focused on the topic, which is "Virus markets" on a crab forum?  I recently added an update on what I experienced with the "virus markets".  Don't shoot the messenger.  My visit on Saturday was to get info from a dealer that's owned this establishment for 55 years.  These folks somehow manage to scrape a few dollars together for crabs.  Perhaps the 3 of you might schedule a trip to interrogate and scold these buyers for buying crabs during covid-19.  Apparently, they're enjoying a nice crab dinner for whatever reason they choose.

There's a market for viruses?  How much they paying?

Seafood is not an essential staple for most people, especially in times of crisis.  Obviously right now when it's 50 degrees and blowing 50 knots, not too many people in MD anyway are thinking about eating crabs.  I suspect as the spring and summer move on, the demand will increase, as it always does.  But if the CV issues persist, and social distancing is still being observed, crab feasts will be at an all-time low.

Agreed, but what was really neat to witness was a line of folks wearing masks along with the dealer to put crabs in paper bags, pay the $30/doz. etc.  I know this dealers establishment for 55 years.  The current owner is not the original owner.  But they have a huge following of crab lovers that were not stopped by this crises in getting what they wanted.  And I'm glad for the watermen, including myself, that people still want live crabs even during these challenging times.

I'm working 7 days per week even during c19 and I retired 5 years ago.  Go figure, I just like keeping busy.  I'll start crabbing commercially on May 1.  And there are folks even on this forum that would love to have live crabs right now.  I know nothing about government workers right now but I hope they want crabs also.  And if you don't have a buyer for your catch, I'll buy it.  I'm also a dealer and will meet you.   laugh laugh laugh

There was a guy on facebook the other day looking for a buyer of around 45 baskets of sooks, daily.

They are giving sooks away right now.  The market is flooded.  Lots of supply and little demand right now.  I saw sooks for sale as low as $75 retail last week.

That was a hilarious episode Rick.  Thanks for the levity.  Yeh, the demand for sooks is typically low.  I have no interest in them.

I'm okay with that.  I was always the best chess player on the football team and the best football player on the chess team.  I'm pretty good at taking jokes.  But if/when you want to place a few healthy bets, it's going to cost you a bit.  laugh  And with that said, I guarantee you are the best speller that is a drywall expert.  It's a dichotomy to me.  But you are the exception to the rule.   laugh laugh laugh

I run a sportsbook, so I really don't need you for wagers. But thanks anyway. I will add football and chess to your extensive list of careers and activities, when I get an extra three hours to spare.

LOL.  I am terrible at football and spelling.  The "incredible" Bobby Fisher came from your state in a Philadelphia club that still stands.  Chess is mathematical, like sports books.   laugh

Did you remember to tape your bee hole? Go get those imaginary crabs. Talking about snow flurries in the weather forecast this week. Just can't catch a break.  laugh

"Wallco 100 minus 1" will be working soon.  He runs a sportsbook (kinda sounds like illegal gambling to a chess player).  Apparently, sports without spectators will be begin soon.  I think he'll begin with golf (PGA) around June.  Not certain if his sportsbook includes golf?  Probably not.  In my assumption, I think he's running house numbers at 2:1 over the lottery which is cool.

It was a joke you goofball, since all sports are 100% shut down. I thought you realized that, but I guess not.
