oh man...one of the best meals i had down there.  not fair to tease like that!!!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

in all reality i didnt catch a single one!
had 2 slave drivers in the boat that made me drive the whole time! ;)

we did have a ball and were off the water by 1 pm. 
i usually keep him on the water all day! ( sun up till sun set )  but i took pity on him and w were running out of room in the ice chests  :-D

sorry for the tease kathy  :'(    ( not really )

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

I see you can keep male and female crab's. Look's like a fun time if you make it out west I'll take you crabing and claming and maybe some bottom fishing.

I thought of you when I posted this thread Irwin. Good to see you around buddy. Yes, you can keep both sexes as long as the female is not in berry.

Look at the last picture in this link: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild/wild/species/bluecrab/

This female is in berry, meaning she is carrying eggs. You have to let them go then by law.

BTW, my wife and I enjoyed more crabs, onions, garlic, sausage, and red potatoes during the Saints game against Carolina. That was a close one!

Brings back some good memories of visits to and time spent in SW  LA. My cousins there said you could starve to death with a table full of them in front of you, you just gotta shuck faster..dl

Picture 12 looks like the crab is looking right at the camera. Kind of reminds me of the crabs on the pipe in the movie Finding Nemo.

They must reproduce faster then the dungenes crab it take 5 years for a dungenes crab to become legal on the Oregon coast. One year they let people keep female crab and almost wiped them out.

I'm not sure Irwin, it could be quite a few different factors. The Dungies definitely get bigger and our waters don't get anywhere near as cold as y'all's do. I imagine the water temps have a lot to do with it.
