Jay Hamme

Jay Hamme HS
Crabber Biography:

Jay Hamme is the brother-in-law of Bushelled Out captain Ron Meischker. Though he doesn’t get a chance to crab much down in McGregor, Texas, Jay has crabbed enough with his brother-in-law when visiting the Northeast that he’s no greenhorn out on the water. In addition to being a crabber, Jay is an all-around sportsman who likes to hunt and fish along with his son Scott.

Jay fell just short of getting name engraved on the Assault on Patcong Creek Trophy in 2011 by less than 1/8″ of an inch.
