This morning the Bush had a single boat out on it, same one I saw yesterday morning in the same spot crabbing. Maybe he has found a honey hole? As I  passed over the Gunpowder I counted 5 boats out there. All of them small john boats except for one that looked like a bowrider. They were all bunched up on the inside cove of Maxwell point towards Swaderick Creek. Seems the boats have been moving away from the back of the river and more toward the mouth of the river now.

That is all!

Nope I am already across the river and home before then. '

Interesting this morning (wednesday) when I crossed I saw a commercial guy out on the Gunpowder running a trotline. It was a white Parker boat and looked like he already had a couple baskets. Do those guys need a special lic. with the GP being federal waters?

What do you ride the freight train or something?  That's a lot of details for a train fly by.

Actually the train slows down some when it crosses bridges and you'd be surprised at what you can see when you are elevated and observant. Besides that com. guy wasn't too far and Parkers are pretty distinctive.

Another intersting point/observation there, if you are local to the area, you know [dang] sure that it is VERY difficult to see what's going on at Maxwell point from the train bridge never the less count baskets on a boat over there.  The point off #13 cuts off the view of Maxwell from the bridge for the whole Baltimore County side of the bridge anyway.  I wouldn't be surprised if the reports are a blend of fiction and a map showing the names of the points and the creeks in the area.  But, most commercial dudes are not going to run a Parker for commercial crabbing purposes.  Just an LCC if anything was even there...  As for federal waters, yes a comm needs a special license to crab fed. water... some members here that have corresponded in these threads lately actually have that license... not much of the area that you need to crab in is Fed. water ..... I been here a long time and fish the bridge a lot.  We always get the train drivers to blow the whistle as they cross (which they should be doing anyway).  But, never saw the Amtrak acela commuter train doing much less than 40-60 mph... pretty much never... and I see it almost daily... whaterver... wastin my breath again lol   blah blah blah

It has become sad state of affairs that those so obvious wanting to suppress freely shared information about crabbing the Gunpowder River will go to such great lengths to do so.

First they wanted me to put my reports in the private section lest some nonpaying person might learn something of value that they feel they do not deserve. When that failed they tried to have the reports themselves eliminated by crying foul. When that failed they tried ridicule and sarcasm in an effort to stifle that information. Then they tried to attach some sort of moral code to public reports where none genuinely exist. Now that badgering has failed they resort to discrediting my reports and insinuate I am lying. I am offended by their behavior. There is surely a zealous effort being put forth by some individuals to prevent me from reporting what I see on public waters and one must wonder why they would go to such extrodinary efforts to prevent it? Is it to protect you the reader from some nefarious plot or could it be to protect their selfish greed and protectionism? I think the later. It would seem some people feel because they regularly use a river or perhaps live upon that body of water they are endowed with special rights and jurisdiction over it, including information concerning such. And when they see something that might attractive others to it they resort to unsavory tactics to diminish that attraction. Those of such despicable character should be ashamed of themselves and reevaluate their behavior.

The Gunpowder River is a popular public destination for crabbing. This forum is a mechanism for sharing information concerning the pursuit of crabbing. Some people come here to share or glean information to help them make a more informed crabber, while others come obviously here to cause dissention and obstruct and offer nothing of benefit. I would like to share to help make your crabbing trip a better informed one and I am often in a unique position to do so. I can only pray that my detractors can rise above their petty inclinations.

Surely their life is not so shallow and they have better things to do than pick at me and my reports.

When observed from google earth, it is quite possible to see maxwell pt, from the train (fairly easily infact),   but maybe from the water it looks more difficult than it really is. Thanks for the report.
