    Had a solo trip last night since Shawn had some family issues at the last minute...Sorry Buddy...you missed out!
    It was a little bumpy until the sun set, then it calmed down and flattened out a bit, although that big swell would roll through every once in a while...

    It was a great night... back home by 8pm and the boats cleaned and the bugs are tailed already.
    The first net had the two biggest bugs and I had a feeling it was going to be good... so I started putting the nets away. It payed off...I had a limit of 7 in the first three nets and they were all nice no measure bugs except for a couple of smaller guys.
    Here's a cheesy phone timer shot...

    and here's a couple of before and after shots

    FYI, I know you ate them right away because I could smell them cooking and I know that you know you are not allowed to tail them until you cook them. Great job.

    "FYI, I know you ate them right away because I could smell them cooking and I know that you know you are not allowed to tail them until you cook them."...FYI...DFW can come and look in my freezer anytime they like...Thanks, I did read the regs once!

    Caseydmaze...a couple were twitching so bad I had to keep laying the tail straight to get the photo LOL.

    That pile of legs was done popcorn style in the microwave and about 2/3 of the meat was easily cooked and popped right out for a couple of lobster omelets the next morning.

    Really wish I could have made it but it just wasn't in the cards for me. In true British fashion mom kept apologizing that my plans were derailed by her surgery taking a lot longer than planned

    Great haul!! But I had no doubts you'd be on limits early

    Really on the legs and antenna? How do you cook them in the microwave? How long prep etc?

    Yea it really does work...!
    Place 3 or 4 legs at a time in a covered microwave safe bowel and start the microwave. In about 20 seconds you'll hear a few pops...stop the microwave and you'll find that one or all the legs have "popped" all the meat in the leg right out of the shell.
    Only fresh legs pop easily...the frozen ones don't seem to work very well...i've never tried antennas.
    I find that only about 50% to 75% of the legs seem to pop completely, but it's a lot easier than steaming and cracking. It's great for omelets, salads or just snacking.
