Gone Crabbin' 8/28

I was invited to go crabbing Saturday. It was my first experience pulling crabs and I had a blast. I have a new found appreciation for the high level of labor involved in getting a bushel of crabs to my table. We spent a full day in the shallow waters of the Middle River and the Chesapeake near Miller's Island. We worked our tails off for a bushel of heavy crabs that we enjoyed well into the evening.

Many thanks to Ryan Murray and his father Charlie.

These are some pics from Saturday morning. Please excuse the preset experimentation. Images of me pulling my first crabs are by Ryan.
