Getcha Crabs Here!

Large crab catch on roadside.

Ross Corner, Nassau, Bahamas. Crabs galore. Crab season comes in May and June in The Bahamas. This is the beginning of the rainy season and land crabs exit their flooded burrows and are caught by hand by the thousands on many of our family islands with Andros being the main supplier. Then they are shipped to Nassau aboard mail boats to be sold. My Grammy taught me how to catch a crab and how to hold it way back when I was about 12.
