I Love Crabs!

« on: August 03, 2007, 09:07:38 AM »

I'm baiting up tonight and heading out early tomorrow.  1200' line and a couple pots is the plan... somewhere near Welsh Point.  I talked to a friend who went out last night and got a bushel in about 2 hours.  Apparently, all the crabs have moved north...  it sounds like the Wye and farther south is pretty slow. 

I'll post a report sometime tomorrow.

Headed out to Elk this morning with Bob-a-Bouy.  We were on the water at 6 and our first run we had about 8-10 crabs.  We were in 7-9 feet of water.  We crabbed for 4 hours and got about a half bushel.  Very hot and heavy early and slowed down about mid morning.  We took our sons and a great time was had by all!  It was my sons first trip and he got to see some nice crabs caught.  Most of our crabs were around 5 3/4- 6 inches but we had about 10 or so that are up around 7.  They look like they have some nice meat in them.  As we were leaving the boat ramp we meet Big Daddy and chatted with him for a minute.   Nice to see a fellow blue crabber.  Can't wait to get back on the Elk.  Heading to the kitchen to steam our catch.  Can't wait to eat em.  I will post some pics of our catch later I have to resize them.

I am not sure exactly how Biggest did, but i think he was about the same as us.  Sounded like he had about a half bushel.  We had never been down on the elk.  It was really nice, and very easy.  I bet it can get rough when the wind kicks up, and when all the boaters are out on the weekend.  Can't wait to get back down there.  It is really nice to be only 1/2 hour from home and catching crabs.  The boys had a blast they are both 7 and I am sure it won't be long until they will be pulling traps.

He hit the water at 6 and there were 3 or 4 guys running lines in the same area as us.  Set the line in about 5 feet of water and it was slow going.  Ran it for an hour, most the of ones we caught were big and heavy, but we were averaging about 1 keeper per run.  So I decided to move the line to another spot I knew of.  It was in 6-8 feet and was only a couple hundred feet from shore.  First run 8 keepers.  We started hitting them hard and were out of the water around 10 with bushel of males.  Most in the 6" range, but the biggest of the day was 7.5"

Where were you exactly and how deep of water? We have been pulling 2 or 3 keepers through each run of the traps.

2 or 3 is good?Huh I thought we were doing something wrong with 30 traps out. We have been tossing alot back but no real small ones, they are just under size but I thought I would be getting more. I guess my memories from younger days of pulling up tons of crabs must be exaggerated in my mind since everything is more exciting, bigger, and better when your a kid! SOrry.....before this season I havbe not really crabbed in about 10 years. Maye more. I got into going fast with high horsepower big blocks and forgot all of the fun to be had fishing and crabbing!!!!
