We got them up around Waldron Island but never of a size we would consider eating. Reading about it they are called a few things, tuna crab, langostilla, pelagic red crab. What is odd is they are pelagic so are suspended in the water column so I always felt it was weird to get them in shrimp pots.

Must be the secret bait.

SHHHH!   :chuckle:

Love finding all the strange stuff. I'm planning on making a shirt that says "I Catch Weird Ship" with drawings of stuff. I caught a blood star a couple weeks ago.

Very cool catch! I got a sea cucumber in a crab pot this year. It was surprisingly tasty.
There is not enough wilderness left in the world, or in the hearts of men.

We would catch similar critters in SE AK and was told to call them scampi  :dunno:  Never ate them but they were pretty small. Always amazing what you might get in a pot out of the deep.

Sea cucumbers are tasty, radial muscles are similar to clam strips when cooked right. Commercial fished for them for a number of years. Never ate the skins, but very popular in some Asian cultures.

I've eaten a few deep fried Sea Cukes, tasty, but too much work. I only cook them for effect any more.  :chuckle:

How well does that work on a crustacean? I'm assuming you can't ever remove it from the alcohol?

You can remove for short observation periods. Alcohol does tend to pull the pink fats out of shellfish though.
