Eastern Shore Shows Its Crab-Picking Might At Crab Derby

CRISFIELD, Md. (AP) — Pasadena’s Greg Anderson says he thought he was something when he won a crab-picking contest at a boat show in Baltimore last year.

On Saturday, Anderson says he learned from the best in Crisfield where he placed ninth among nine pickers at the annual National Hard Crab Derby. The event is held each Labor Day weekend in Crisfield on the lower Eastern Shore.

Saturday’s winner was Crisfield’s Ruth Schoolfield who picked 3.88 pounds in 15 minutes. Anderson picked 1.3 pounds.

The Daily Times of Salisbury reported Sunday that as many as 7,000 spectators were expected to turn out for the weekend of activities at the fairground near the city marina. In addition to crab-picking, other events included crab races, crab cooking and boat-docking contests.
