Jimmies, Sooks and Peelers

Soft crabs, also known as “peelers,” shed their shells between April and September. Fishermen at Benny’s Seafood in Manns Harbor of the Outer Banks, North Carolina, describe the shedding process, and how they catch blue crabs using a male crab called a “jimmy”. The Manns Harbor soft crabs are harvested and sold to buyers throughout the Eastern shore.
