Oh, I agree! We only eat them in the winter. Our friends shuck and froze these shortly after we left them in March. (We spend the winters down the street from them, and actually should see them about 3 months from today in Texas). They were fantastic!

Or....

Thrown in for the last minute (thawed) of a nice dark gumbo.
Add some file in with them there oysters and world peace could be a possibility.

Never thought about freezing them. Were they good? Never seen frozen oysters in the store either. Everything else, but never oysters.

Yep. Those warm non R months the oysters are spawning. They get nasty and slimy.

Back when I could eat them ( before I developed an allergy to shell fish ) I would freeze them in quarts. The perfect size for an oyster fry for one.

Man I miss being able to eat them. My favorite food in the world.

They were fried to perfection, still plump and juicy under the light breading. Now I'm hungry for oysters!
What place are you talking about in CC? I have family there and I'd love to try it out when I visit again.

Also, what beer is best paired with oysters? Not to make with oysters but to drink while eating oysters.

Tavern on the Bay at Harrison's Landing. It's been about a year and a half since I went there.
I can't give them the best rating because of a few things that happened. There was a live band and the music was way way too loud and a waiter spilled a whole glass of water down my mother's back without so much as a visit or apology from a manager. So that kinda soured the night a little. But I was completely satisfied with my food. I ordered the seafood combo which includes fish and two each of the largest oysters and shrimp I've ever eaten. When I make it back down to Corpus Christi I'll definitely be going back.

Yes, they were great! I didn't eat them raw, like I do with fresh oysters, but they smelled and tasted great when cooked. I kept the liquor, and froze that, for using in a chowder.

I've never been there. I don't know if we'll try it or not, but thanks for the tip. We normally don't go out for seafood, since it's better at home, and my experiences, at least in Port A, are that the seafood in restaurants hasn't been all that good. We rarely go out, but when we do here is our favorite spot in CC: http://ichibanjapaneseseafoodbuffet.com/

Since last night's dinner, I've been thinking about grilling oysters on the half shell. Butter, garlic, lemon and hot sauce, on oysters on the grill just cooked until they are barely done. Maybe some shrimp on skewers next to the oysters, and perhaps some redfish on the grill also. I can't wait!

The next oyster meal here is going to be fried oysters. I love them fried, too.

I know what you mean. I grew up eating a lot of seafood at home, so I sometimes have a hard time eating seafood in a restaurant. It's just usually not the same.
But it sounds like you have some good meals coming up with those oysters.
