You need to eat lots of raw oysters and build up your immune system!

One of the few types of seafood that I wouldn't touch with a 10 ft. tongue.

Years ago I went to a bull and oyster roast with my dad. He told me, "Son, you just aren't a man until you eat raw oysters." I just said "OK, daddy, I'll pass."

One of the other guys there took the bait and slurped one down. As God is my witness, prior to that day I had never seen someone that truly turned an actual shade of green that he did. If memory serves we well, he did keep it down though.

You just don't know what you're missing! I literally grew up eating them. But I'm native to Wakulla.

Maybe if I had been born blind I would eat them.

I grew up eating steamed blue crabs. I just can't get enough of them.

It is rather disappointing that the steady supply of live crabs around here isn't all that I had hoped it would be, living right off of the Gulf of Mexico. For some reason the powers that be decided that all the crabbers have to pull up their traps for the month of July. Which should be prime season for them.

Rich, I grew up down there walking the banks of the Oclocknee with a lantern and a gig, spearing Blue crab and Flounder at night. Easily filling a wash tub in a few hours. You can still do this on a moonless night around Oclocknee Bay. It doesn't get any fresher than that!

I never really heard of anyone spearing blue crabs. The way I used to catch then is with a line attached to a raw chicken leg or other suitable bait. When one or more crabs are eating on it, you slowly draw in the line and nab them with a net. Or the more efficient method (but not as much fun) of using a crab trap.

Of course, I do remember the girl who used to cut my hair commenting that she would whack blue crabs with a two-by-four. That just seemed to be a rather unique way of collecting them, to me, anyway.

Blue crabs should be live when you steam them. Matter of fact, when it comes time for them to go into the pot, any that are dead are discarded.

Well, now I'm REALLY getting an appetite for crabs! But I guess I have to wait a couple of more weeks before I can get a batch of them.
