    Too bad this is one of three I caught, all females, they had to go back. But, the 99 Ranch market had ginormous live Dungeness for sale for $4.50 a pound, so I still got to satisfy my craving....for CRAB! I feel for you folks who don't have access to fresh crab. I don't think I could ever live too far from the coast.

    Man I miss having fresh crab. That is one of the biggest things I hate about not being back in N. CA is all the fresh sea food. I could chow down on about four or five crabs right about now. Oh and some fresh ling cod and abalone. Out here all they have to offer is fried catfish, and I am not gonna eat some crappy bottom feeder garbage fish..........

    I agree. I thought the same thing about catfish Corey, we have some big ugly sombitches up here for Channel Cats, and I thought no way in hell am I gonna eat that. I went down south and tried it.... Wow... A little greasy but it was amazing and I would love more.

    When I visit relatives in Baltimore I always spend a fortune eating the seafood there!

    Love those crabcakes!

    You just can not compare it to ling cod, snapper or hallibut. I really dislike the taste of fresh water fish.......

    You don't like fried gills, or walleyes...them are good right there.
    I believe my favorite would be New England lobsta, right off the dock in Deer Isle, Maine.

    Trout is good, so are crawdads, never had oysters on the grill, but you can have raw oysters. Clams, bearded are best. My GF and I spend A LOT of time at Fisherman's Wharf, and it kills me to smell all that delicious crab. I simply refuse to pay tourist prices for Dungeness. San Francisco should have a 'resident' discount down at the wharf......

    Yup. Nothing but a bunch of overpriced garbage. There are a bunch of outstanding restaurants down taht way, while overpriced, the food is fantastic. There's also a sweet restaurant/bar/blues club that has live blues every night, that's what we mainly go for. And then, the Wharf is really close to North Beach, another area of town with more outstanding restaurants than you can count, Ie. "The Stinking Rose" whose slogan is "We serve food with our garlic" or something along those lines. But the Wharf/ Pier 39 area is fun to walk around, bar hop, check out the street artists, check out the foreign chicks. There's a LOT of history there as well, which I enjoy. But every time I go, I start craving crab, so I go to the Asian grocery store and pick it up for less than 1/2 the price of what it goes for on the wharf.

    The only way I will eat dungeness is if it is less than 12 hours out of the water and boiled in salt water after it has been cleaned. Some people will cook it with the guts still in them........

    I cook it with the guts still in there. Drop live crab into boiling salted water for five minutes, then clean. I've seen recipes that call for putting the 'guts' in a blender and adding it to the dippin' sauce. No thanks. There's a somewhat well known restaurant a couple blocks from my house called Thanh Long, and they have the BEST Mother effin' Garlic Roasted Crab, but at $30 a plate, I set out to figure out their "secret" recipe myself, and if I haven't succeeded, I think I have come damn close. If anyone is interested.....

    Crab and Sourdough, almost as good as sex.

    Matt the next time I'm in SF I need to look you up so we can eat crab and sourdough bread. Two things I miss dearly. Out here in okieville they seem to think that soggy texas toast with margarine is something to rave about, barf!
    The so called sourdough you do get here taste like cheap ass white bread.
