I hope everyone is having a great summer. I know the temperatures are reaching up there to where it can be very uncomfortable for a lot of people but I know form the past that we’ll probably see a lot more of this hot weather with August coming up.
I would like to let those of you who have been making a special trip to our store recently that I really appreciate you very much. Because of you, we had a really busy weekend last week. Now that the Crawfish season is officially over, we expect less customers that traditionally only come to us on a seasonal basis. I wish we could have crawfish all year long. I hope to see more of you throughout the year trying to eat healthy.
Just to keep everyone updated, we recently started our Live Blue Crab Program again.
We are working directly with one of the largest Blue Crab suppliers in the industry. They are one of the largest suppliers that supply the Maryland Crab association on a daily basis shipping thousands of pounds of Live Crab to many of the major restaurants in the Maryland area.
Our program has been working great since June and I hope that everyone who enjoys Blue Crab can now expect some really high quality product.
When we started, all we could get was full bushels and now that our orders have picked up considerably our supplier is now splitting bushels for our customers.
Each bushel weighs 45 pounds. That’s approx. 9-10 dozen crab and we only bring in male crab. All of our Live Blue Crab come from our gulf and are delivered to us on Friday’s and Saturdays.
You do need to call in and reserve your order as soon as possible and when you get them, you will be amazed at the size and liveliness.
LIVE BLUE CRAB:
#1 MALES: 6.99 LB
#2 MALES: 5.99 LB
45 LB BUSHELS AND 1/2 BUSHELS ARE AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY’S AND
SATURDAY DELIVERY…MUST RESERVE ORDER BY THURSDAY AT 2:00 P.M.
I don’t know of any special events coming up to promote but we know many of you are planning your summer vacation and we hope everyone enjoys every minute of their vacation.
For those of you that will be in town this week, we have a great selection of some great fish on the grill.
So what I have done for everyone this week is to list the most popular fish that we are carrying in our store for the whole week along with this weekend also I have listed a group of fish we carry that are vacuumed sealed and frozen so you can stock up and you won’t have to get out as often in this heat. I hope you get an opportunity to try some of them, I promise you that you will be amazed at the quality and how easy it is to prepare.
Remember, what we don’t carry fresh, is caught on boats that have to stay out for a week at a time and these boats process the fish they catch and vacuum seal and flash freeze right on the boats. Same goes with shrimp. Be careful if someone says they have fresh shrimp, because who knows how long it’s been out of the water. I prefer my shrimp frozen and bagged at sea.
A very important note for everyone to understand, with fuel(diesel) prices the way they are right now and in the future, many commercial fisherman cannot afford to fish day boats. So if they did, they would pass the cost of fuel onto all of us. That’s why many have gone to the larger commercial boats that stay out longer before coming to shore to drop their catch.
