    Post Blue Crabs..

    What a year we are having down here on the Saint Johns river.
    Blue crabs are coming in like crazy.. If I never eat another Blue Crab I will not be upset. I am sick of the damn things already.
    We are allowed up too 5 recreational traps per fishing license per household.
    I have caught about 100 so far.
    Took on a partner in my venture. He is a good ship mate. Works hard.

    Looks like you have two mates and both are pretty good looking and competant. We land locked people don't get good food like that up here.

    If they're anything like the Maryland Blues I used to eat at my cousin's place, I wouldn't mind getting sick and tired of them! God bless you and yer crabs, 4th!

    And all this time I thought they were creatures that feasted on blue balls and the like.

    I will have to second the sentiment that I would seriously enjoy getting a shot at having the chance of tiring of what you have on your table.

    When I was a kid, my brother and I used to get Blue Crabs when our mother would take us to the inter-costal water way. We would use chicken necks as bait, we would just tie a line on with a small weight to keep it on the bottom and wait for the crab to take the bait, then hall them up to the surface and scoop them up with a net. It was great fun for kids but those pinchers were nothing to mess with. My older brother chase me around the yard with the bigger ones if no adults were around.
