Dungeness. I catch lots of blue crabs off my pier but really like the dungeness because they are tasty and easy to eat.

Dungeness though blue crabs are the most succulent to me (just too much labor, never get full)

I found some BIIIIG king crab legs at Kroger the other day. The guy at the counter said that they were the biggest he has ever gotten in. We weighed just ONE of the legs and it was 1.4lbs. I got three Leg's...not clusters...just legs. That was Alot of meat for two people!!! So I would have to go kings

I lik'um the Kings, then the snows with the dungeness right up there too..

Now lemme say this - after a nice day of wadefishing one of the beautiful Texas bays (preferably Baffin), I would take Blue crab. Ya see if I am having a bud light in my hand, sitting around the picnic table I would be eating blues along with a pound or so of fresh, sweet gulf shrimp that were picked up from one of the shrimp boats in trade for a beer or two along with grilling a Redfish on the halfshell ( means fileted and cooked with scales still on/scale side down) with a butter/garlic/basel sauce..

Alright, I am ready for a breakfast taco!

I cant eat crab...dammit. No allergy, and I used to love them...but its a psychological hangup due to several really bad experiences with crabs. I will skip the details, but you guys have my complete support killing all the crabs you can handle.

It's got to be Kings for me. But then again I wouldn't pass up on eating my fill of Spider crabs fresh out the waters off the Keys. Crips even those little deepers you see running around on the ground in some of those Survivor Island programs has my mouth watering. Me Mikey, I'll eat anything!

Only Blue Crabs will do if I do not want to be run out of Maryland on a rail. Last summer was good crabbing just out front of my home. We could fill 2 bushel baskets up in about 3 hours on most occasions. Summer before was not anywhere as good as this past summer. It is fun to catch them, cook them and feed the neighbors.

Sam‘s club has “huge“ crab legs, they are great eating, so darned expensive I feel guilty buying ‘em. Curiously I feel no guilt eating them.

These. They're plentiful and fun to catch with a dip net. Usually get a 48qt cooler full in a couple hours.
