I used to fish out of Crisfield a good bit and watched the ladies picking. Learned their way and bought some Carvel Hall knives,can pick'em clean.

Local pickers are just about extinct, not many younger people going to pick crab. I think mostly migrant pickers at the bigger places. Not as much blackmarket crabmeat around either, used to be many wives or family members picked crabs at home. HardCrabs in somerset were too scarce and too high priced to pick. Sooks are usually much cheaper so that's why you saw them on the picking tables. The seafood industry down this way has changed much over last 20 years not sure for the better but still get enough local crab to keep me happy for now.

And they wonder why the crab population declines - leave the female crabs alone
