I went crabbing this weekend for the first time in what seems like forever. When I was younger this was a family ritual. Every year we'd get up at what seemed like an ungodly early hour and pile into the car to go crabbing. We'd almost always end up dissapointed with our megar catch, but it was fun nonetheless. Feeling nostalgic, I decided it was time to get together for another crabbing trip. This time we did get up at an ungodly hour (04:00) and headed out to crab at Romancoke Pier. It's a 1/4 mile(ish) pier about 1 1/2 drive southeast of from where I live. We made good time and got a large spot of the pier to ourselves. By the end of the day (noon) we had about a dozen crabs. Thankfully, the day was saved by a guy on the side of the road selling crabs for $10/dozen. For those of you who aren't from this area, crabs are going for $65/dozen right now - $10 was a deal we couldn't pass up. These turned out to be some of the sweetest and tastiest crabs I've had in a very long time. All in all the trip was a success and I can't wait to go again.
