Cambridge Md, Little Chop Tank

Sat morning, on the water before 6am, only one other crabber out there.

Could not keep up with the crabs, there was so many on the line!

Lots of small ones and females, but was a very busy day working the line.

Caught roughly 2 1/2- 3 Bushels, but only a bushel of keepers.

Crabs were good, nice and heavy, a few big one's over 6".

Got home to steam them, and my steaming pot had a hole in it!  [dang] alum pots!

Luckly I had a spare, got'em steamed and they were great!  Nothing like the taste of the 1st crabs of the year!

Well, got me a Keg today to make into my new steamer pot. 

Stainless Steel, so hopefully no problems with this one!

Got to get it done before next weekend, planning on going crabbing again depending on the weather....
