Some of my fondest childhood memories are crabbing off mt Uncle Johns dock in Bayou Caddy MS. My cousins and I also have a tradition of going crabbing after any family wedding in New Orleans in Lake Pontchartrain. We call it "The Tastiest Catch".
Most people think it is the boiling water that kills them but actually it's the lemons. If you listen very carefully you can hear them scream when you put them in the pot, "Oh no not the lemons". You gotta listen close.
