Went to Fort Anahuac Saturday. I wanted to try out my two new Captain Bruce's Big Gun 20"x15"x11" convertible crab traps. I used a temporary top setup for both traps. The traps worked great. I was catching 3-5 crabs every pullup at 15 minute intervals. Caught 71 crabs. Unfortunately, only 3 keepers.
The rest of the blue crabs were small. Mostly between 3"-4 1/2".
This is my third time crabbing at three different places around the Galveston Bay complex. I'm beginning to think around the entire shoreline of the Galveston Bay complex, something is wrong.
It's hard to catch legal sized crabs from the bank or from a pier.
