I was at a tackle shop on my way to South River for my cousin Chrisís birthday party (he turned 3) getting two lures and my reel spun when a guy walked in started talking about what he caught on the Choptank River. He said that Choptank is slamming, that he caught 3 Bushels (also was talking about his usual lady that buys his crabs so I'm assuming has comm.), He said that he caught the first bushel in one run on a 1000' trotline. Then as we walked out he was outside showing his catch to some other guys. I personally saw 3 bushels of crabs on his Bass Tracker boat; he had a propstick made out of PVC. Just passing along the Information, I donít crab on the Choptank. Wink

the crabs are probably those little 2-3'' crabs that eat the [Sam Hill] out of the bait, you can catch 5 bushels of them easily.

I heard something about a boating accident on the Chester, and 11 yr old girl missing.  Part of river may be closed.

Blackfire,

Where abouts on the Choptank was he?  The DNR Policeman I talked to said that things have been really bad on the river this year. I can also tell you from experience that I haven't caught more then 30 there this year. Last Sunday we went and got 29. They were nice sized but the numbers sure were not there.

I hope you are right and things picked up since then.

Let's see.  The report said the guy was using a 1000' line.  To me that means the guy was a rec crabber.  I know of no commercial crabber that uses less line than what a rec can use and they normally buy their lines in 600' spool and connect multiple spools together.  Yet the report states that the person had 3 bushel.  Definitely sounds like another case of a rec catching over his limit and most likely selling the extra crabs.  Only my opinion.

Just one of the few bad apples that keeps wizzing in the MSSA's and TF's milk.  Not because I have violations (because I don't'), but because I'm catching the resources that they claim to own and have more rights to.

They were talking about that he should have used his two other 1000' lines, but he was complaining about baiting his lines. The worker at the store was older and called him by his name when he walked in so he was a regular. I have no Idea where on Choptank he caught them. Sad that the little girl went missing. Sad

Comm guy using a bass tracker, less line than a rec? if that is your income then why would you complain about baiting the line, thats what you get paid for - doing the work.... I agree sounds to me like a rec guy over his limit... let him get caught one time with that many crabs.. he wont do it again!!!!
