The 26-year-old Pasadena native has wanted to be a crabber for as long as he can remember. A year ago, McFadden decided to start documenting his Chesapeake Bay adventures on TikTok with the goal of showing people how their food goes from water to table.

“(I) kind of built a business around letting people know where it came from and the honest truth about what it really takes to catch crabs and get them to restaurants,” McFadden said.

McFadden described in a recent TikTok video: “It’s a pregnant female. It’s all eggs. We call these sponge crabs. We don’t keep them here in the upper bay.”

His big catch came when his TikTok account recently hit 1 million followers.

“People kept saying it, and they were like, ‘You hit the million!’ And I was like, ‘Oh man, I hit a million! That’s awesome!” McFadden said.
