Spent the day working spots in Merritt Island, Sykes Creek and Ulmay, caught just a few nothing good to say about the action down there. Drove north to just above the Cape and worked both sides of SR. 3, Bio Lab area as well as Dummits Cove. Did better up there, mostly at some spots along Long Pond Rd. Water is as high as I've seen it. I'd like to be over there crabbing when they open it up and let the water start flowing into the river. I've always caught plenty when lucky enough to catch some moving water. Saw several gators, one of which would have gone 9' to 10'. Didn't hang around that spot too long. Not one of my best days, but not one of the worse either. All in all we caught enough for me and my crabbing buddy to each take home dinner and had a nice day in the outdoors to boot.

Thanks for the report and glad that you got some. What was the size on them?
Have you ever been on the Banana River? I've heard there are some good sized crabs in there but it's tough to get to.

I haven't seen any action here in the NSB area but I'm going out Saturday to give it a try. Will post a report.

They were kind of on the small size for that area. About 18 in the 5" to 6" range and another 7 in the 6" to 7" bracket. I've caught larger over there. Got a tip on a new spot that I was told has "some big'ums" will check it out on my next trip. No I've never crabbed the Banana River. I crab from land and off docks and have really scouted the are for locations. If you have a boat it may be worth the drive. Let me know how you make out up in Smyrna, I've caught good numbers there, but never with any size to them, in the Indian River that is.

Thanks for the reply. No, I can't say the size is impressive from NSB area.
