This class is a true crabbing 101, or as much as can be delivered in 75 minutes.

We will cover: crab habits and addictions; the rules for catching and possession; the many ways to catch crabs such as trapping, snaring, and netting; how to keep crabs alive; cleaning crabs; cooking crabs; picking crabs; and freezing crab meat.

We'll look at many equipment options and make suggestions as to how to best set up a pot.  We'll discuss the best baits, Whidbey Island locations and times, and how to keep from losing your pot.  If we have time, we might trade recipes and taste the results.
