Well I've been a little busy up here to get anything done including working on the Minnow to get ready for crabbing. I've been lobstering up here and I'll have to admit the results have been less than promising! I've been relocating the traps every week and moving them around for better success. I have only been getting one or two lobster per trip out of seven pots. It gets a little expensive with the price of bait and gas. I figure each lobster was costing me about $40- a piece! I finally stumbled onto a new area that looked promising and dropped in three pots. When I came back three days later the first pot had five lobster in it! The next two had six more! Finally success! I dropped the pots back in and let soak for two days and went back yeaterday to get five more lobster!

In the picture below I'm lifting the pot with the winch and checking it as it comes up so I don't bop the bottom of the boat!

These are some of the other crabs you catch up here. I am not sure of the species but they are either Lady Crabs or Jonah Crabs.

Lastly you rebait the trap and drop her back in for another soak. You can see the last buoy in the background.
Water temp is 75.6F in about 40' of water. I am over a steep rock pile here that is about 20' high. I have the pile surrounded with four pots now. The pile is around 100 feet in diameter...not a large one but it has been productive! Bottom line: location, location, location! Hope you enjoyed the show. Smiley
