CB's Got CRABS!! (Actually just went Fishing with "Captain T" ,Junior's Dad, CD's Hubby, FOR Crab) and A picture or two to make CD Homesick! Miss U!!

Now all you dirty minded people pull your thoughts from the Gutter and See How they Fish for King Crab in Unalska/Dutch Harbor!

Just a Little Shot of CookieDough's Back yard, to make her so homesick she comes back sooner!!

It had been miserable and rainy all day till we got on the boat then we had a couple of hours of Great weather. while Pulling pots

There is a shot of Bunker Hill from the water.

Yes, CB's Got Crabs!! (Those these are too small so we had to toss them back)

Captain T, (CD's Hubby and Junior, Dills and Manderzz Dad) is a Master fisherman and got his quota of 5 full sized kings out of just Two of his pots!

Even in Unalaska/Dutch Harbor the Crab are sorted for Size, Sex and Species.

Little Mr Bardai had to go on back to the water.

This is the Biggest one that Captain T caught yesterday. A Truely massive Crab. And Nice and Clean too.

This crab was wanted on weapons charges, Bail Jumping, Extortion, Arson and Homicide.

Captain T provided swift and Merciless justice for this monster!

Cleaning them up before the trip home.

And the Catch of the day!! All ready to be boiled and Frozen for Captain T's Mum!!
I had an awesome day and really look forward to doing it again.

And now, One last Shot to make CD think twice about being gone so long..................

Have a great Day!

Yes, it is King Crab. That is what it looks like before it is cooked.

Wanna know something funny? I've never even tried baridi or opies! He only fishes for red kings. I do like dungie when in Wrangell though --yum!!! (my cousin's restaurant serves a delicious salad with dungie crab!!) a worker shucks it. (I'm really NOT spoiled) really...

Kim said...
