It’s a tradition to go to Zeeland every summer with a group of friends to dig clams, oysters, mussels and catch crabs. It’s FUN to work together, especially when the weather is good like it was this year.
Here’s last year’s post on our day trip to Zeeland. We were wearing sweaters and knits! I remember we even had to wait in the car for the rain to stop.

As usual, we came back with buckets full of clams and crabs. The clams were really good this time and larger than we would find them normally. We caught more crabs than could fit in the stock pot and.. we even found some tiny ABALONES!

The next evening we had oysters, crab stock, pasta with clams, ho fun (wide rice noodles) with clams, rice with shrimps, mussels and more for dinner. Sooo delicious and so worth the work!

Next year again!

Hi! I came across to your blog and find it interesting. Where exactly in Zeeland do you go to catch crabs? An any tips on how to catch them? My 4 yr old daughter will surely gonna have great time doing this and i am also looking forward to try catching with my friends this weekend. Great blog! Keep them coming!

Hi Joy! Thank you! The crabs are at Grevelingendam in Bruinisse, near restaurant Meerzicht. There you have a dock where we always sit and catch crabs. How to catch them.. we use raw chicken legs. Tie a rope around it and let it in the water and wait for the crabs to come. When the crabs claw on to the chicken we raise it out of the water and use a net to catch the crab. There are other ways, but this is how we do it :)
