They'd all look like that if we didn't harvest for a few years.

The best tasting crabs and fish are caught at the flats which is the mouth of the Susquehanna river. You eat the seafood caught there and you won't touch the stuff from around here. After eating from there you can actually taste manure in local seafood esp the crabs. It's also the best crabbing and fishing around because the lack of manure and other pollutants have allowed a natural habitat to survive.

Craba like this are the norm up that way. An old friend turned me on to these crabs years ago and I absolutely couldn't believe the quality difference. Like previously posted the crab meat has a sweet taste, much much better

I used to get crabs that size everyday in the 60s and 70s. And early 80s Would take a basket in a intertube and walk around the cove were Holly's Restaurant was now ROFO in Grasonville MD. And scoop them with a net. Or some times just grab them by the backfin ! Also off Turkey Point and the Eye River. Thoes were the good old day's
