10.22.12 Crab Dogs

22 Oct

Sofie and I went down to the river to check on the dinner crab situation.  You see, our water (the Magothy River) is directly off the the Chesapeake Bay, so we get the best Blue Crabs in the nation.  All we have to do is put these crabpots* in the water and the silly things crawl inside (How dumb is that?). 

Mom was checking but it doesn’t look like anyone crawled in.  Our humans love crabs but Mom is just going to have to go find one of those trucks on the side of the road tonight and get whatever the seaman caught today.  That’s me! Louise the Baydog

*Invented by Benjamine F. Lewis in the 1920’s, patented in 1928, and perfected 10 years later, the crabpot changed forever the way hard crabs are harvested on the Chesapeake Bay.  The crabpot is the most common method used to catch and harvest crabs and is used worldwide.

    Is the crabpot that cage thing sitting in the grass? It doesn’t look much like a pot…..

      Yes – It is. Not sure why it is called a pot and not a crabcage either?

    I’m sorry you didn’t catch the crabs. I don’t know anything about crabs. They look kind of scary to me. I live by a river too, but no crabs. Turtles and catfish. And lots of frogs. I hope you get some crabs for dinner!

      We love frogs. They come into our little ponds and sing all night. We also have them in the trees.
