Fat crabs

Took the nephews out crabbing in the river this morning. Wind was up a bit initially but a cracker of a day. Got our 10 pretty quick (2 licenses). And was stoked with the size of them! Didn't catch a single female or undersize crab, got 4 on our last run so had to throw 2 of them back.

cooked up tonight for dinner! Full of meat and tasty! Tried steaming them for the first time, as had cleaned them prior to cooking, and reckon will always do it this way from now on. 12 mins was perfect, thanks for the tip jackfrost!
