    Default Question

    I don't crab, but we eat a lot of steamed crabs in the crab houses. Sometimes they are real good sometimes not as good. We always order the jumbo crabs. My question is what is the best size crabs you all like to eat. Thanks!

    I don't really care too much about the actual size as long as they are full. I would much rather eat a full 5 1/2" crab than I would a 7 1/2" that's light.
    For taste, where the crabs came from determines this. Say what you want about the water quality of the Patapsco but I much prefer the taste of the crabs we catch there than the ones from the Severn or Patuxent.

    My brother and I tried crabbing for the first time since the middle of June and went home with 3 dozen SUPER JUMBOS. Had they not stopped biting, this would have ended up being a 5 dozen at most bushel. They were all jam packed to the point that they would probably be sloughing in the next couple of days.
    The flavor was good but I think the salinity needs to come up more to give them the sweet taste I like.

    We tried the Med. size crabs today for the first time. We always ordered the jumbos, but thank to you guys we will now order the Med. crabs. They were packed and very good. AND way cheaper. We eat crabs at Suicide Bridge Restaurant.
