crabbing on the outer banks



One of my favorite things about vacationing in the outer banks is going crabbing. Its a simple process, you only need a few things and you always catch something. Some string, some chicken legs, a net, and a bucket. It is always a good time.

Looks like a lot of fun. Now that we live near-water, I need to learn how to cook seafood. Seth has been asking for Bass and Crab.

I can't believe you can just go out and catch stuff like that with some string. Those are huge! And what great pictures. Looks like a really fun day.

Wow! Great pictures. I'm SO jealous that you got to eat fresh crab...did you totally LOVE it?

actually i don't like to eat crab at all- ironic i know. I catch them for my dad and other people who enjoy eating them or just catch them and throw them back- hey they can't complain- free lunch of raw chicken for letting themselves get scooped up for a few seconds!

Love the expression on your little guy's face! So what kind of crabs are they? I love crab but am a bit of a snob.
