    Troy and Melissa squared us away for three dozen oysters on Friday evening. They were delicious! We can't wait to stop by there again but will be better armed with some champagne in addition to mom's cocktail sauce. Oysters, shrimp, and fresh fish? One heck of a way to rough it in paradise!!!

    Oh, gotta bring an oyster knife next time, too. My Leatherman knife worked pretty well though I'd hate to have to get my hand sewed up over a couple of oysters...

    What's an oyster knife look like? A small butter knife? I always seem to get shell in mine.......

    We'll be headed to South Bay on Sunday or Monday.....weather dependant. Hoping to hook up with 4 Dozen....how long will they keep on ice?

    Put them in a mesh bag and soak them in a bucket while you are running. Hang the bag off the side in the drink while you are at rest. This will keep them alive and fresh.

    They put ours in a mesh bag yesterday and we bought 4 dozen. I don't worry about cutting them open. Just a mnute on the grill on one side then flip them over for another minute then they open right up. Then eat'm up....

    So school me on this one. Put them on the grill like was said, but cook them for how long? And then put anything on them before eating them? Do you have to take any guts out? Do you chew them or chug them? Obvioiusly, I've been living in a hole...

    RAW: If you like them raw, shuck them and eat. You can put some lemon or hot sauce on them but they are so good you can pass this up if you do not have it.

    COOKED: If you don't want to shuck them put them on the grill with the deep pocket shell down so the juice does not run out and dry up, heat up, wait for shell to pop open, pull off/cool down and eat them.

    Or you can shuck them, keep them in the deep shell, add a little butter, garlic, italian bread crumbs, fresh grated parmesan cheese. Place on grill, wait for cheese to melt, pull off/cool down and enjoy!!!

    It all depends on how much time and effort you want to put into them and peoples preference...it is all GOOD!!!

    I recommend puting the oysters in a bucket on swim step and add water over the day. Mesh bag works great as long as you remember to pull them in before you take off. The mesh bags don't hold up when they are overboard and on step...don't ask me how I know, it makes for a bad trip!

    4 dozen is no problem just call us 10-20 minutes before you arrive and we will have them ready or if you would like to see how they are pulled you can pull up to the barge and watch it will take about 10 minutes or so depending on how busy we are.

    Don't worry, I will not be out before the 2-3 rd of July, you have time to get one more trip in I would hope.

    Thanks for the info RoyalWave, see you in a week. Any problems with bringing my little guys by to watch you pick them?

    We will be stopping by for three dozen tomorrow. We want to see the harvest, plus the four kids will get a kick out of it.
