That's so they can see if what is caught matches the results of the dredge survey.  Roll Eyes Grin

No, the reason they are waiting till August is as they said,  they want the results of the latest Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab Stock Assesment to be available.  This assessment has been completed and may have gone thru the peer review phase.  Results are due to be announced in the next month or two.  This is the assessment which recommended the 200 million spawning age threshold which the bay is operating it's management plans on.  This threshold number may go up as a result of the new assessment.
Remember that DNR said they would "un-freeze" licenses after 3 consecutive years of above threshold numbers.  This years, WDS showed above threshold numbers for the 3rd consecutive year, but I think they are looking for a higher threshold to come from the new stock assessment to allow them to keep licenses frozen, and other management plans in place.

Right on....  I was told by my source, "the threshold will go up significantly".

So, in other words, they will keep setting the bar higher and moving the goal posts so they can keep the same restrictions in place or make them tighter? Huh Roll Eyes
