    Blue crabs

    Hello all,

    Anyone out crabbing?

    Been out twice, once in west haven once in new haven. Spent quite a few hours in both locations at both tides. Large numbers of shorts pulled up in west haven, a couple of keepers out of new haven. Considering traveling towards the eastern shore to try my luck there, if only to get away from the riff raff and traffic of the two previous locations( i can only crab by foot, no boat).....

    Anyone been out? Anything to show for your efforts?reports?

    Saw some smaller crabs Saturday in Branford, but I wasn't crabbing.

    I've seen a lot of people crabbing in Guilford and keeping them. Hope they were legal.

    Bro, you've gotta tell her to buy that shampoo
    When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home

    When I was a kid in the 70's we fished the Housatonic all the time. In Devon we would anchor across from the power station and put down crab traps and come home with loads of them. Those were the days when they came in by the hoards in the summer. The fishing was very different then too. Seems things have really died down over the years. Ahh those were the days though.

    Came in with 7 keepers tonight, just enough for my fiancé to think I'm a hero(i don't really eat em, she does).
    So, old bay seasoning, pepper, garlic, cumen, sitting above boiling 2 molsen Canadian beers, red wine vinegar, water and she LOVED IT!! I had a taste too and mingya it was pretty darn good!
    Moral of the story is, I catch em, she eats em, she thinks I'm the man! Win win !!!!!
