It’s what’s for Thanksgiving dinner
« on: November 24, 2021, 02:52:49 PM »
At the Markee home we are having fresh crab and a big pot of home made clam chowder for Thanksgiving dinner.

We are so fortunate to live where we do to have such great bounty to harvest and the ability to do so.

Wishing you all a happy and great Thanksgiving.

Niiice haul… being commercial licensed do you have a limit on how many you can catch. Also really like the tubs they’re in I’ve never seen those in California.

And Likewise a very Happy and Bountiful Thanksgiving to All !!

You must not hang out at your local laundromat.

There is no limit on how many crab I can catch legally with a commercial license. 

The market really is what drives how many crab I catch.

I don't sell my crab to the wholesaler who would buy them from me for about $5 a pound and then resale them to somebody else for a profit.

I have two Thriftway stores I sell my crab to after I cook them.

Because I have my commercial kitchen I am allowed to cook the crab myself and then sell them directly to the consumer rather than a whole seller.

Because I have my kitchen I built I get paid $10 a pound for my crab.  A crab is about $20 to to me.  The thriftway store sells them for $15 a pound.

I only sell about 4 or 5 dozen crab a week to the two stores.

I have discovered crabbing is better money than fishing.

My kitchen I invested in building is turning out to be a profitable little side hustle.  Now I can cook crab, vacuum pack my fish, and smoke fish.

When Im commercial fishing for crab I have to use rings.  When Im sport fishing for crab I use my pots.

A couple pictures.  This is how we cook our crab for thanksgiving and Christmas.  The crab soaks in a tomato based BBQ type sauce all day.  My absolute favorite.

The second photo is my crab cooker I made.  I can easily get 6 dozen in the pot.

Ahhh yes I’ve envied that cooker in your Pryor pictures. The tomato based is intriguing as well.

That's definitely a nice crab haul.   :food:

I'm afraid that the area I was crabbing this summer doesn't look so good right now.  See the bottom right corner in the sat pic at:  http://www.arimaowners.com/index.php?topic=22081.0

We are having something simple like soup and sandwiches cause we will be out catching striped bass as the wind is laying down on the Chesapeake today and sunny 60 degree weather.
Tomorrow it's blowing and everybody will be here for striped bass tacos. My wife is from Mexico and makes the best tacos. Hope everyone has a great holiday,good eats and tight lines.

My favorite. Let it simmer all day.
A little garlic bread to soak up the juice and I’m a happy guy.
