first trip of the year for me. went out of madison and headed to slaughter creek. didnt get the line in the water till about 10:30am. only caught 6 keepers but saw quite a few small juveniles. laid the line on the creek side of the bridge in 3.5 to 6 feet of water. pulled the line after about 5 runs and headed back towards madison. laid the line by cherry pt. and ran it 3 times and didnt see a crab! unbaited the line and relaxed with good friends, good food, and beverages Grin. then came the storms! Shocked Shocked Grin Grin! ran into 2 short storms while we were slowly making our way back to the dock. everybody piled in the cabin while it POURED for about 5 or 10 minutes during each storm. all in all it was a great day on the water for everyone especially for my wife because this was all she wanted for mothers day! Grin! not much to talk about when it comes to crabs though Undecided. probably be alot better next week. good luck everyone.

I also was on Slaughter Creek on Saturday(5/9) but not untill about 1:00.We layed our traps just outside the bridge.We crabbed for a while and picked up around 2 dozen,and then it happend.A thunderstorm hit , we tied up under the bridge and watched it all,got good pics of a rainbow,at one point visability was zero.Then we pulled a few more times and ended up with 39 keepers and around 2 dozen through backs and 1 softy.What a great day on the water!
