Fellow Crabbers:
Decided to go one more time. Started at Tred and laid my 750 ft line baited with chicken necks right down middle of Tar Creek right around 7 am. First 3 runs and got 2 rusty guys just under 7 and also 3 throw backs. Water was extremely clear and when sun broke through it put tremendous glare right on line. I thought they might be in deeper water and dragged line out toward main river. I did see more crabs
Maybe 6 or 7 but all dropped before I could even dip. Finally got one more keeper but around 9:45 decided to pull up and head to Wye. Lot had couple open slots and I headed into Skipton right below the sheep on that hill with line going back out into main river. First run a keeper and on 2nd a real monster(8 1/8). My expectations started to rise. I must have made 10 more runs and only caught 4 more crabs and 2 were
barely keepers. Called it a day and the year.

Be safe out there.

Two things that help me with the glare is a hat with a brim pulled way down, and polarized sun glasses. (Mine are prescription)

Just one of the few bad apples that keeps wizzing in the MSSA's and TF's milk.  Not because I have violations (because I don't'), but because I'm catching the resources that they claim to own and have more rights to.

I got the hat and the sunglasses. I meant with the very clear water and the sun glare on the crabs as they were coming up, I believe spoofs them and they drop. I guess another reason why traps are so good late in the year(?)

I crabbed on 10/28 for the last time this season on a creek around the Bay Bridge.  We were in 18 ft of water & could see the baits 7 ft down on the trotline.  I knew we were not going to do well.  We got less than a dozen and packed it in for the year.
