Even better than that of course would be to do us the occasional article... Something on shellfish cooking (for the forager), or good recipes for wild shrooms, that kind of thing.


Yeah, that'd be great

if it moves eat it (unless it is wearing colourful toxic clothes )
peelers are ace raw or souped , shore crabs are ok but crunchy

a crossed stick frame with loose nooses that close when the pulling string is pulled and a dead thing as bait on the centre works for me to get pinchy for dinner(ok it needs a weight and a few dry tests but its easy and effective )

pots are good but my way only needs 2 sticks and some string , timing the haul (easy feely with a fishers touch ) when pinchy is on the frame is important but even random pulls will get results if the (smelly )bait has crabs to attract

if you have access to below low tide water (from a pier /rocks etc )it should be easy to get big uns , between tides they are usually smaller , cover turning at low tide often gets dinner in a few minutes and is my best bet for a definite munch

i stood on my biggest ever when having a paddle

my way has fed me loads

spider crabs are good eating but alien looking


... and I am told that US Eastern Seaboard horseshoe crabs are poisonous, although they look like something out of Doctor Who, so I wouldn't eat one anyway ...

... unless, of course I had proof that they were edible, then I might just have a nibble ...

Soft-shell crab sandwiches are good and widely available on the US east coast
