When fishing in Newport, crabbing is a nice side gig to take part in. Placing the pots out on your way to the fishing grounds and pulling them up when you come back in. After pulling up the pots, throwing the females back and the smaller ones that do not make the size; we race back to the docks where the boiling pot is awaiting the catch. 20 minutes in the boiling water and walla, fresh crab for the tasting.
