Spent the Weekend on the boat and got to do some crabbing. Dropped the pots on Sat with a stiff north wind and 7-8 foot swells, not the best conditions...picked them up Sunday in 5-6's much nicer boat ride. Having two licenses on board our limit was 20 well we stuck 19 in the tank in two pots, almost unheard of.
Bot underway (stole pic from our Cabo trip)
The haul, one of them bastards got my middle finger good. I flung my arm as I felt the pinch and crab went flyin across boat as the claw was still clamped onto my finger.
had to figure out how to get em from A to B this seemed to do the trick
Put em in the livewell to keep em fresh
got em home and it was time to clean, the bastards were still alive and trying to pinch my ass again
Using Salt and two lemon peels I boiled those bitches up
Final product ready for eating
