Yep, deeper is the secret at this time of year.  I'm able to set my traps to 30' if need be, and usually is by November.

What was the water temp?  It's helpful for those of us who crab late in the season to know. Temp in just under 60 at Thomas point - that'll keep the bugs active for a while, just deeper.  Wink

Wye was mostly 54-55 degrees yesterday for locations toward the mouth.  No one we talked to on the water or ramp had any in the baskets.

You must know the spots at the Wye (bushel this time of the year is absolutely fantastic!).....but yes, traps are your best bet when the water temps start to get in mid 50's....

That is one serious rig on the side of your boat....you got to let us know how that comes out next year.

Johnnyboy,
Your dipper looks great for homemade.

I see some minor issues your gonna have, but Ill let you work em out yourself. Trial/error.

Looks fantastic though.

May not have been too late to use it.  I had a 600' piece of trotline (slipknots) in Prospect Bay Tue Nov 5th.  It caught 2 crabs on 4 runs while the 18 traps did zip.  Everything was in 18' to 22'.

I'm hoping crabs won't crawl out of your dipper while your running line. Couple years ago I tried holding a big fish net in the water during the whole run, ie. using the fish net like an auto dipper.  Saw at least 6 crabs go into net but when we got to the end it was empty.  No holes in net, they had to crawl out through hoop.  Usually run between 2 & 3 mph. Maybe we weren't going fast enough to keep em in? Don't know?  Good luck with it, looks cool.
