Got to Rolphs about 8 and headed to Southeast Creek with a greenhorn crabber.We laid 600 ft baited with chicken and got 1 whole crab on 2 runs.We decided to move onto the River and headed north,huge mistake.Relaid the line in 14 ft thinking deeper would be better,it wasn't.Tried to hunt them out with traps,we set 15 traps in different depths with little to no luck in any given depth.We relaid the line in 10 ft did a few runs and a few runs of the traps and ended with a whopping 18 crabs.Very disapponting,but felt SOOOOOOOOOOO much better when Crabman called to tell me they were busheling out on the Wye,where I should have went.Then to lift my spirits even more I got a nice busting PM from Finksburg,you guys are the best !!! Oh well I deserved it,zigged when I should have zagged.

Sorry to hear that my friend. You must have had some bad "MOJO". The crabs are still way up in the creeks. They are just now moving deeper.

The chester is cranking right now. 60-80 crabs a run on 1200ft of trotline. Culled out we after throwing back small, paper, and females, we still where getting @ 30 good crabs a run. Busheled out quickly. The 2nd one was a little longer. The depths are 10 ft -14 ft. I will be back down this weekend. I hope they are all black and purple.


Better luck next time.
