Mother Shuckers

Have you ever driven through Martinsburg and saw the building with the giant crab on top?

Mother Shuckers
That's Mother Shuckers Crab Shack, a local restaurant that specializes in fresh seafood.

Mother Shuckers
The menu features crab, salmon, scallops, shrimp, mussels, oysters and more.

I went for one of their "specialties" - snow crab & shrimp platter served with drawn butter and two sides. On this day, it was dungeness, and I got sweet corn fritters and shrimp macaroni salad as my sides.

Mother Shuckers
I don't think I knew what I was in for when I ordered this. But a giant bucket was delivered to me before my platter.

This was a ton of delicious food. Yes, it was work. But it was also so worth it.

  1. When trolling around for freshwater tarpon, deploy two baits behind the skiff, one fished about 30 feet back in the current, and the second fished about twice that far back.
