I just saw that on the news tonight. This guy was from Talbot county. Now you have to worry about every little cut that comes in contact with the water. Pretty scary stuff.  shocked2

 Remember the Wye landing is in Talbot county.

That's pretty scary stuff . I know that I usually end up with at least one cut or scrape just about every time I go . They did say it's very rare for this to happen though .

Idea for all- I keep liquid antibacterial soap on the boat at all times.  Not that it would stop something like this, but it sure couldn't hurt!

I think back over the years as to how many cuts, scrapes, fish-fin pricks, crab pinchers, fishhooks, etc I've cut myself with, seems like I always used a handful of salt water to wash them off.

I guess I better use something else from now on.  I certaintly don't want my internal organs liquified.  I don't want anything liquified come to think of it.

That's scarey stuff! it's not difficult to watch out for stuff you can see. It's near impossible to watch out for stuff you can't see.

When i got a cut or grabbed by a crab or poked by a fish gill i would wash it off in the water thinking the salt would do good, NOT ANYMORE!!!!!!!, The water is to dirty to do that anymore. They need to spend the money that these goverment people when they give there self BIG RAISES AND PUT INTO RESTORING THE BAY!!!!!!  JUST A FLUSH TAX,YEA RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FLUSH THIS YOU MONEY HUNGRY, WELL YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!!!!!    FRANK

I hear ya, Frank....tell us how you REALLY feel!!  All kidding aside, the dirtiness of the bay is no laughing matter..and now this happened to this poor recreational fisherman...I read it in the paper today..it was on the front page.  But they keep building and building and building and guess what?  Everyone wants to live near the water, but who is taking care of the water?  NOT the developers.  They will take the money and RUN fast to the next place. 

Anyways...I don't want to get started about the development...that's another post!!! 

But the antibacterial stuff is not a bad idea to have on board these days.

I saw the story also and I bought some antibacterial hand wash for the boat and dock box.  The water here in the upper Indian River is dirty, hot and in worse condition than the Chesapeake Bay.  Yikes! Shocked

What a shame.
I reckon I should keep some anti-bacterial soap of some sort on the boat AND with me while I crab.

Jeez! I can't count the number of times I've been scraped or cut while crabbing, clamming, fishin' or even just palyin' in the Gulf!
Guess I should consider myself lucky so far!

Life used to be so much simpler, didn't it?

 Undecided Undecided Undecided Hey not to scare anyone but I got pinched by a crab on Saturday night, got me across my ring finger on the right hand. Well I am going to the Dr.'s this morning at 11:30 to get my finger nail removed, somehow it got infected underneath, looks like my fingernail is ready to explode off my finger. I will post a pic later tonite. Be very careful with those critters!  Smiley

Good Luck Dave. Crabs are covered with bacteria and when they pinch, it enters the wound. Instead of just using bacterial soap like some have mentioned, iodine would be better to keep on the boat. I know iodine stings but it is very effective.

get better brother Dave.. let us know how you made out at docs.. was the bite under the nail? as you know the tissue under our nails is very soft and sensitive and makes sense that any kind of prick under there would cause a problem. especially, a crab bite given the bacteria as mentioned. i've gotten wood splinters under my finger nails and it got quite red and sore for a few days..

stay well.. keep us updated.

Dave good luck with your wound.. over the years 40 or so I have had 4 separate infections as a result of crabbing..  get pinched and the skin broken infection sets in the blood.. see red line traveling up your vein in the arm.. if you don't go on antibiotics the infection will get to your heart and kill you.. use heavy gloves or even better let someelse sort the crabs kids are old enough now so I don't get bit anymore or drive home.. yeh...
