Brent and Kenneth already had knowledge on the crabbing side, we all had knowledge on sales, Samantha knew all about retail and, and customer service. Everyone has to start somewhere why not start now. As days went by we started planning and thinking on where to begin. By that time we found a vessel, and a refer-truck! So we all drove down to North Carolina where we purchased our boat, crab pots, and refer-truck. We knew we had to get started right away on getting every detail fixed on what we bought to make it perfect. From repairing the truck and purchasing a new refrigeration unit, to sanding, and painting every part of our boat to bring it out to its upmost potential. It was 6 full months of work, but it was all worth it in the end! Samantha and Brent even worked at home making hand made tout tines, bait bags, and buoys. We will never forget where we came from or who has helped us through this journey. We want to thank all of our family and friends for always being there, and most of all our customers we couldn't make this happen without you all! We hope to have more to share with everyone as our dreams keep moving forward. Thank you for taking the time to read our story! Its one we will never forget! Have a great day!
Us here at Blue Crabs Unlimited, a small family owned business building a dream one step at a time. It all started at a young age with all of us, Brent Merson the owner/ commercial waterman of Blue Crabs unlimited grew up on the water of the magothy river in Pasadena, MD. Along with his mother Kim Merson, and father Kenneth Merson who is also our very own driver of the company's refer-truck. Brent and his father both starting out as recreational crabbers, getting crabs to their friends and family right off of their own small boats on the weekends. When Brent met Samantha Beaver in July, of 2013 who is our manager/ sales for this company. He learned that she had also grew up loving the water and has worked since the age of 15 years old in a well known crab house in Catonsville, MD. As time went on they started crabbing together with a friend of Brent's who is also in commercial crabbing where they started learning more, and more about the commericial crabbing world. One night Brent and Samantha started talking about a future, a future of wanting to do what they love together. Well how about starting a crabbing company?
