Let's not get to excited here.  This fishery is cyclical.  It has it's peaks and valleys hingent on many different factors.  Let's wait til after this winter and summer are over.  Before you know it people will be scratching there heads wanting to know where all the crabs went.  Watch out for the finger pointing.  Roll Eyes
