Went on my final trip for the season today. Against my better judgement I let my crabbing buddy talk me into going to an area we used to go to alot but hasnt been that great this year. We dropped 21 traps baited with chicken in 4-6 feet. after an hour and half we had about 15 keepers and 75 or more toss backs. we had 2 foot waves with caps out in the deeper water but we pulled everything and went out into 10 feet and fought the wind and waves.My little skiff doesnt like waves since its not very deep but we gave it a shot, ended up with 36 keepers and more juvvies than should be there this time of year.
size of keepers was legal to 6 inches and all were rock hard. Wish I had just gone to Thompson like I have been the last few weeks but what is done is done, my work schedule wont allow anymore trips but overall its been a good season. now, come on spring.... Grin Grin

I could file the exact same report from today in an unnamed EB creek, except I brought home 32.  Going solo in a 14 ft McKee I hid from the 2 + footers.

Hey! I saw your Jeep in the parking lot yesterday, but didn't see you in your usual spot when I came back to the launch. It was a little rough crossing Eastern Bay in the morning, but we were able to find a spot out of the wind to lay our line. Where did you end up dropping your traps?

Hey Stoogeman, I was in my usual spot set off to the sides since someone else had the center of the creek. Also, I painted my boat blue this year, it was red last year,lol. After an hour and half we pulled up everything and went around the point out in the open area towards Eastern Bay but that was insane, 2 footers bringing water in aint fun, lol. Ran a bilge pump while we were out there. laugh laugh

Mystery solved. I was looking for a red boat, but didn't see one. It looked like there were three or four boats working in the creek. We were lucky I guess. There weren't white caps when we headed out in the morning...and the SE winds were behind us when we buzzed in. It was our best trip yet this season...about a bushel and a half of mainly muddy bricks. Another trip for next week may be in the cards. Too bad you can't get out again....work sucks!  Sad
