Set out at 400 am with captain Bubba (Dad) and daughter, 8-year-old master crabber Mikayla, to get traps in the water by 630 am.  Arrived to see 8 or 9 trucks at the landing, which is very unusual for this spot.  It was a sign.  I've never seen so many boats working one small area.  The good news is everyone must have been catching, because it sure seemed like a friendly bunch out there.  More dockside talk, on-the-water conversation, and waving than I'm used to seeing on that "other" river.   Roll Eyes ::)Spread the traps out in 3 lines of 10 traps each and moved them 10 at a time until we found some slow but steady action.  Finished up at noon-thirty with close to a bushel of big, but not so rusty, crabs.  Plenty of crab for the crew.  All in all a great day, which was made even better when my daughter, after pulling traps all morning, power-washed the boat when we got home and then helped clean the entire catch after I steamed them.  What a trooper.  She's been with me when I crab with Rapp, so she probably thinks doing all the work is part of being on someone else's boat.  laugh laugh laugh laugh Final count - 61 crabs.   Can't wait to get back out there.

1 - The crew.
2 - First mate working her butt off.
3 - The reward.
4 - Still smiling after a long morning.

Great job.  she's a real trooper and will remember these days for a long time.  Nothing better than a kid enjoying the spoils of the land and staying out of trouble.   Smiley

Crewstation: What a wonderful report and pictures.  That's totally awesome that you enjoyed a day of crabbing with your 8 year-old daughter. There is nothing better than enjoying a day on the water with those you love.  What is also great is that there were a lot of friendly folks all around crabbing. This was a memorable day for you on many accounts! My son and I enjoyed crabbing Chester River last summer and are excited to give the beautiful Chester River and Wye River another go next week during our vacation!

She did a pretty good job of it, too.  The pressure washer almost knocked her off her feet when she pulled the trigger.  Then she got right to it.  No "re-do" necessary.
