In the 3 1/2 years I've lived down here in Fort Lauderdale, I haven't done much crabbing...even though I used to go all the time back in NJ. I guess life is just too busy lately.
Anyway, stopped at the launch ramp just off Oakland Park Blvd and Dixie Hwy today to eat lunch. While there, we seen quite a few crabs on the pilings/bottom. Made a quick decision to grab some traps and some frozen bait from the house, and headed back to the ramp/dock. We had 8 traps out for about the last 2 hours of incoming tide. We got approx a dozen crabs (didn't count them), with most of them being very nice sized. Even got one that has to go at least 7 inches (probably the biggest I've ever caught).
Considering that I haven't seen many crabs in this area, and that nobody really goes for them down this way, I'm very happy with the amount we caught. It pales in comparison to the crabbing back up North, but I don't want to be one of those people with the "it wasn't that way up Nawth" crapola.
