Can you say "Dinner"?

DH's first attempt at catching crabs in our new crab trap. Just a few more and we should be talking fresh Crab Salad!!!

UPDATE: We cooked and picked four crabs tonight (Sunday) and have about 1 cup of meat. Yippee!

Updated Update! We "captured" 3 more beautiful, huge blue crabs and have added them to our original 4. We did the seasoned boil and froze our bounty as we will be celebrating the 4th with the kids, grandkids and friends at our daughter Leaa's home. Life is good. I can only hope we always appreciate the blessings in our life.
Peace everyone - Happy 4th of July!!!

We used to steam them and then dip them in soy sauce that had finely scraped ginger in it.

And, I was taught to catch them one-by-one with a chicken bone tied to the end of a string while waiting off a pier.
