If a comm. mentions a rec or vise versa, people come in from both sides and there is a giant dogfight.  All he said was there was a buncha recs up there.  Because there are more recs then comms, there is a tendency for recs to wrap up more of the river.  No disrespect, just a fact.  30 traps strategically laid can foul someone's plans of laying a trotline.

yea ray with the wind up i knew the creek wouldbe full. raven boy what's your problem?there's only 1 good lay in stoney outside the bridge whereni can fit 2 1200 ft lines. i usually avoid it because it doesn't hold enough crabs andi can do better outside. i only stated the reason i went in and i really don't like your attitude toward me or my post.

Sorry for sounding snappy.  I didn't mean to direct that at you personally.  But it is quite annoying for rec guys like myself working a small skiff or jon boat.  We have no other choice but to stay back in the creeks on MOST days.  The Patapsco chop is too much for small boats.  You guys with comm license have a huge advantage in that you can take your boats just about anywhere.  So when you see a comm guy complaining about "too many recs" in a small narrow creek, well then my reply is always going to be, "no shiat". 

I personally want to slap the guy who sent out the early June report about catching a couple bushels in the Stoney.  Ever since that report, every conceivable spot in the Stoney has been slapped with traps or trot line.

Not to get in the middle but rdbeard has a small skiff, not a big workboat.  I believe part of the reason he went in the creek was because of the chop.

Ray,

You've seen my piece of shart...

Me and Ravenboy2001 ventured past the big rocks one day and almost got swamped by all the boat traffic.  Turned back into the Stoney with my tail between my legs and about 20 gallons of water sloshing around in the jon.  laugh laugh thinking2

I'd ditch the boat and jump up on the rocks.

I agree with Ravenboy, ever since early June the creek has been packed.  Three weeks ago was the last time I tried to go out, 6:00am sunday morning from the Stoney Creek drawbridge to the mouth of Rock Creek I counted 21 boats crabbing.  It seems like things have really slowed up in the creek, out of those 21 boats I asked 2 of them how the were doing and they only had between 1 and 3 crabs.

I'm not blaming over-harvest just yet.  After all it did rain all day on Saturday in the dirty 'Dena.

This thread is simply about limited space and one group feeling more entitled than the other.  And its about to reach the old dead horse stage.  So I'm done beootching.

As an experiment, what if the mods were to close the "Maryland Crabbing Reports " section for a month or so and see if makes a difference in the amount of boat traffic? They could replace it replace it with "Maryland Boat Traffic Reports".

Shut down the reports section for 2 weeks, leave the honey holes section open.  Im sure the amount of supporting memembers will go up greatly.  Its a win both ways.
