Internet crabs...

I've finally found some chunk crab locally that is good enough for crabcakes, but it's not quite as good as I would like for a pure snack treat. Anyone know a good internet source? I liked Dungeness when we lived in CA, but I'm open to other varieties as long as they are good.

Ah, that's one thing that I don't have a shortage of here in Baton Rouge. I miss crapies, and other fun stuff from the lakes of Wisconsin and Minnesota, but I'm never at a loss for crabs now that I've moved here to Louisiana.

I wish I had a website for you, or wish that I could package some of this delicious crabmeat that I see daily to send to you.

Yeah, there's this fishmonger about a mile away from me who has beautiful fresh crabmeat. Or the boat rental company about two blocks away where you can check your crab pots in the river. You can have two crab pots per person without a license here. These are Chesapeake Bay blue crabs (NOT Maryland crabs )

yes, but they're kinda small. it's almost impossible not to eat as much as you pick because it takes so long. besides, i don't trust the water anywhere within a hundred miles or more of ny harbor. at that distance, you might as well just keep going to del-mar-va for the good stuff.

actually, my best days of crabbing were in bradenton, fl.., just inland from anna maria island. they were so good and meaty.

gg, i've never heard anyone differentiate chesapeake crabs from maryland ones?

from the way you mentioned it, i'm guessing the chesapeake ones are sweeter, or bigger, or both?
