Proper Crabbing on the OBX

Here are some things you need to properly crab in the Outer Banks

First things first. You need some Franzia...a lot of it, actually. I know it sounds kind of girly to drink some white zin while you are performing the deadliest job in the world but...it works.


You need something to throw the dead fish into the water with


And someone to cut up dead fish


As you can see here, hot dogs can work too. I recommend fish.


Nets work great at pulling the crabs in


Little brothers to man the lines, or gingers. Here we've chosen both.


Here i've shown you improper technique. This is niether a little brother nor is it a ginger. Very bad.


You also need a saucy little red head for proper screaming. Note the franzia


By the way, the little ginger brothers can come in handy for putting the bait into the cages too.


Again, please notice the franzia

This is an excelent view of everything. Notice the Franzia and saucy red head screaming in the background. Also notice the little ginger brother in the foreground and how he is not doing the fun part--pulling in the catch. His job is strictly to man the lines.


It is important not to be afraid of these ugly creatures.


As a safety note, make sure your saucy redhead doesn't get fish guts on her summer dress. She quickly becomes less enthusiastic about the job


Enjoy watching these *******s awaiting their slow hot death


Enjoy the catch. These are snow crabs actually...but you get the point


Le Crabe!!! HOUGH HOUGH HOUGH...(they are french i hear)

Nice post. Have you tried using a Mason jar for the Franzia? Seems somewhat appropo.

Forget fish and hot dogs. Chicken necks are irresistible.

TQ - yer a funny dude!

Sounds like a great vacation! <envy the crabs>

Out of curiosity - looks like soft shell? How did ya cook them. I love seafood but have only taken a couple home and steamed them - only to open them up to ... Blech! Guess I'm this "inlander" that enjoys the Can-O-Crab where everyone has done the work for me.

Truth is that they were far too small to be worth cooking. We thought we would be humane and let them back out into the wild one night. That wasn't the best idea though, as my girlfriend's brother put it the next morning "It looks like a crab Holocaust out there". I wish i had pictures of it, but there were crab limbs everywhere. Not sure if they did it to each other or if the 'gulls got 'em...probably both.

To answer your question though, you would just steam them like any other crab.
