jg, oysters can feel pretty wet, they are definitely have a unique texture, they're not spungie, kinda more like a big wet noodle, especially if its been raining, but they fry up nice. Bugs love them, but I just cut out the really bad wormie sections and wash them with the spray nozzle. Tip: cook/fry them first, then add in salt, spices towards the end. They absorb flavors really fast. bucky, Caption Caveman! I forgot all about him. He's a stud!
