    Getting about that time to start checking the water temps for the uo-coming crab season  Cool   I was pleasantly surprised to see a nice rise in water temps compared to the same time last year  Cheesy   Temps are up 3-4 degrees from 2023, right now Shocked Shocked  That tells me the crabs should start moving shortly, even though our season doesn't open till May 1st.   JUS SAYIN !!  Grin Grin Grin

Let's just hope we don't get the RAIN we had last year.  veryangry
Warm fresh water with excessive run-off = bad crabbing.

I agree it looks like very little winter kill- I think crabs will be slowly moving at 47 degrees feeding around 50 degrees.  Looking towards a great new season-

NOAA just issued their 3 mo. forecast... above average temps... and thankfully NOT above normal precip.   As El nino subsides and we transition over to ENSO neutral (and eventually La Nina) the thermocline depth in the pacific becomes more shallow, thus decreasing all that moisture that has been coming in from the equatorial Pacific.   It just takes time for that "spigot" to turn down but we are finally getting there.  I've been watching that every month all winter.

Soo.. in short.. WOOHOO!!  Looking forward to this year!!  And with the slow season last year, hopefully they'll be even BIGGER!  Last year, in I think late May I had pulled up monsters and I was so surprised given the time of year.  (Normally I get small ones early in the season).
