All this talk of crabs is maiking me hungry! And it's bring back fond memories of my crab pots back in NC. Fresh crab every couple of days, blue crabs and stones................mmmmmmmm
By the way, if you want to go the "old fashioned" route as my Grandpa would say. Use a turkey/chicken neck on a long string with a block on the other. This is fun with kids because they get to see the crabs come up close before you scoop 'em up with the net.
