  1. Good job of getting informative info out there–keep up the good work!

    • Thanks Sandra. If Larry is going out this week, we would like to meet him when the boat comes in to take pictures and follow up with a short interview about the summer shrimp season so far.

  2. Hi, my hubby is a NC licensed recreational fisherman. We call him “the crab guy” because he’s so in love with blue claws. He has made crab boards, etched with the outline of a crab, and we use them for crab parties. We would love to get the word out any way we can that these are for sale. Info can be found on my blogs (http://freecrabrecipes.blogspot.com and http://judyskitchen.blogspot.com or his blog, http://thecrabguy.blogspot.com). I also have some good seafood recipes if you are interested.
