Cravin’ Crabs is a Carryout Crab House family owned by local watermen Paul Koluch and son, Barry

The Koluch’s are Baltimore natives, and have been passing down the skilled art of crabbing from father to son for many generations now.  Some of the most precious memories in the Koluch family revolve around sitting together and enjoying steamed crabs.

Paul Koluch’s entire life revolves around the outdoors.  After graduating from Archbishop Curly High School, Paul went to work for and Retire from Baltimore Gas and Electric with 37 years of service, while his passion truly remained on the water.  During the 1980’s and 1990’s Paul was regarded by many as one of the best Bass Fisherman in Maryland, making the B.A.S.S. Federation Maryland State Team over 10 times, and representing Maryland nationally on a few occasions.  For Paul, crabbing always held a special place in his heart, and he easily made the decision to become a Full Time Commercial Waterman. 

Paul is a veteran crabber who has supplied some of the most well known crab houses in Baltimore for many years. Paul, his wife of over 35 years, along with their children have spent countless hours on the Chesapeake Bay, but his most memorable are the hours he spends teaching his son, Barry the skilled art of crabbing.

Barry Koluch grew up in a household where fishing, crabbing and hunting were just a normal part of life. After graduating from Calvert Hall High School College, he went on to receive a Bachelors of Science Degree in Marketing from Salisbury University, always staying close to the Chesapeake Bay. During and after college, Barry was always working weekends on his father’s crabbing boat. After spending a few years in corporate sales, Barry knew his true passion was Crabs! When not working at the Carryout Crab House, he is probably watching the crab bins for molting soft crabs, out in the Chesapeake Bay on his boat, or enjoying his steamed crabs with family and friends!

To provide the freshest steamed crabs possible, catch them locally, treat these blue crabs correctly, and then steam them to perfection.  This is the Cravin’ Crabs Carryout Crab House approach for producing the best steamed crabs in Maryland!

P.S.  Living on the water as the Koluch’s do, gives them the advantage of watching the crab bins 24/7 to harvest the prized Soft Crab at the moment it completely “sloughs” its shell.  Please read the page on this web site on Soft Crabs to gain a better understanding of the molting process; and the dedication and commitment of these watermen to provide their customers with the BEST Soft Crabs from the BEST Crab House in Baltimore.
