      In this very first episode of “Hanging with Horst,” Middendorf’s Owner Horst Pfeifer takes us crabbing with local fisherman in Manchac, LA. You’ll see them in action, pulling up crab trap after crab trap from the water. You’ll learn how to tell the differences in the crabs that are caught — Is it a #1, #2, Factory or Buster, and which ones do you throw back? Plus you’ll learn that it’s a really hard day’s work. It was tough just watching them while trying not to fall over (LOL)!
