Fishing is still very slow. Porgies are infesting the bay. Hopefully it will bring the bigger fish back in because it will be something for them to eat. There are a lot of crabs, but very small. It seems like this year it is going to be a tough pull. Nobody has any good news! The guys are using every trick in the book, but no thing seems to work. The fish are just not there. A few spots around the bay, here and there, are producing some striped bass, but just a little. The snappers are still a "no show!"
DON’T BOIL THE CRABS… a simple way of cooking crabs…take an eight ounce glass and fill it half way with olive oil. Add one teaspoon of oregano, one teaspoon of minced garlic, and a teaspoon of parsley. Clean a half dozen or so crabs under the faucet. First you must kill the crabs by stabbing them behind the eyes and moving the knife around slowly. It sounds tough on the poor crabs, but it is better then boiling it slowly-a slow death! When the crabs have all their top shells removed and are all nice and clean, lay on cookie sheets one next to another, not on top of another. Mix ingredients in the glass and spoon over the crabs (on the open crab, shell, claws, etc.). Put crabs in the broiler in the bottom of the oven approximately 15 minutes until the crabs turn nice and red in color. Take out of oven and enjoy!
