It is a shame they do not allow non residents to crab in RIBeen hand-lining for crabs using chicken since I was a child,definitely great fun for the young ones.
In an aside I wonder if gulf coast blue crabs are any different then what we get up here in New England?
Nope, not me in the video. But my cousin has a camp in the marsh and I have fond memories catching crabs just the way he did. We had a weir in the back of the lease that dumped into a main bayou....man we caught crabs by the bushel there!
You’ve just described heaven.Keith, thanks for reminding me of something I absolutely love but cannot get any more I grew up eating blue crabs off the Chesapeake Bay. Possibly a bit different than the ones you get but still blue crabs. Seemed as though there was a crab shack on every corner selling steamed spiced crabs...at $30 a bushel. Get a few bushels, cover the picnic table with newspaper, ice down a keg of beer, and spend all day cracking crabs. Man they were good!!
