Default Crabs....

Since there seems to be a decent amount of people from VA and MD lurking these boards, who here loves to go crabbing? I cannot WAIT to go out and catch some crabs. We usually use the box traps with decent results. My old man uses a trot line sometimes aswell with pretty good results. All I can say is, I cant wait to steam up some Maryland blues! My old man got a small dinghy last year with a 5 hp motor and had great results on the South River. I was deployed last summer, but oh man, I cant wait to get out this year!

Also, whats everyone consensus on the mustard. I for one, am a HUGE fan! Mustard, FTW!

I love crabbing. When I was a kid we used to go out to the floating piers when the squid were running. We drop crab pots off one side and jig for squid off the other. Go home with a few pounds of squid and our limit on dungeness crab. Nothing beats dungeness.

That's one thing I miss about Vancouver Island. Damn, I really need to move back there.

Never used mustard with crabs before. What do you do with it? Dip? Sauce?

The mustard I speak of is not actually mustard like the condiment. When you pick a blue crab there is this yellow stuff inside the shell that resembles mustard the condiment. It is actually a part of the crabs digestive system. Its quite tasty and best when its gets mixed with a nice big piece of crab meat. Usually, people are 50/50 on eating the mustard.

I live on the edge of the Great Plains, about as far as you can get from the ocean (Hudson's Bay excepted), and my all time favorite food is crab. The 'mustard' is likely the liver that turns into a paté when cooked. I eat the paté.

You guys are killing me.

Which, in turn, is almost as good as Dungeness.
