Set out the same 8 pots as last trip and made 4 pulls approx 12 hours apart. Ended up catching a total of 90 crabs with an even 40 keepers. Not great by any means but probably the best I have done in the past 3 years. I pulled them out Friday morning even though I stayed until Monday ( June 20 ).  Had plenty and didn't know anyone that wanted any. Pin fish and croakers were pretty much the bait I used. May have been a couple of pig fish and spot as well. Caught only 3 stone crabs this time- all returned as the closure began June 15 for 2 months . I also caught 3 flounder- 2 would have been legal sized and 5 blowfish. Used to be just 3 years ago my total harvest would have been made in just 1 pull of the pots. On a good note- I did actually see lots of small crabs all over the place as I was fishing so I hope that is a trend. I have not caught but a precious few egg bearing females  and none this week.
