Tom Colicchio's Road Trip

Slide 8 of 21

Day 2: Crabbing with Fred Dockery

Tom grew up crabbing on Barnegat Bay, so crabbing with Fred Dockery was "familiar territory." Dockery currently crabs about 300 pots at a time (even though he's licensed for more), and is sensitive to conservation to only catch what he knows he can sell.
