[QUOTE Yes to Piankatank River oysters! Years ago I was a state police SCUBA diver, and we always scheduled our winter months training dives at the Rt. 3 bridge due to the oysters from a upstream farm attaching themselves to the
bridge pylons. As I ascended, a Marine Resources Police boat approached. Knowing volumes about motor vehicle code, but nothing about shellfish rules and regs, I kept my "goodie bag" submerged as I talked to the officers. After about 30 minutes, one officer asked me about what I had in the bag, I told him "Oysters, but I don't know the legal size." He looked at them and said, "The small ones make the best stews anyway."
Good story, I assume you were a diver with the Virginia State Police? Thanks for your service. My father was with the VSP for 38 years. I have always held the VSP in very high regard.
And oh yeah, I Got Your Crabs has awesome seafood, service and atmosphere!
