Launched at crab alley and headed out into eastern bay this morning, right before sun up. Got to our spot and layed out 1200 foot of neck and 10 traps also necked ( like us western shore chicken neckers do). First run produced 16 keeper size crabs, a few real nice big doublers. Out of 16 only 7 were rock hard keepers. The rest went back for next time. Things continued steady for a while. Around 9 the big mumbos cruised through. Had some hooting runs, with some 7 and 8 inch bricks thumping the cull tub (after measuring they were a hair under Cool. Man, were they heavy and nice. Shortly after that we called it a day with all we could eat. Headed out with nearly 3/4 bushel of bricks. Their was a lot of papershells out there. Threw back lots of big papershells. The only advise I can give is look for drop offs. Weather today was awesome and crabbing was fun. That makes a successful trip. Enjoy the pics!

Nice CW! Had a few nice 7 1/2 Shipping Creek bricks yesterday myself.

Eastern Bay crabs taste awesome!

Still a slow and weird year for crabs. Have pretty much lost my loyal customers due to boat problems and lack of critters. Crab customers are about as loyal as hookers on New Years eve laugh laugh laugh

What beautiful weather and sunrises though, pictures don't do them justice, you have to be out there! Thanks for the nice pics!

Have a nice week.
