Unless current+wake took your over the edge of the steep drops that are all over Patcong.    Those two things can cause a buoy to "nudge" a trap off the edge of one of those ledges and into the deeper water where the trap will either sink, or the buoy will carry the trap through the deeper water with the current/tide.    The drop offs are so steep that the back and of the boat can read 6' and the front end is @ 18'

Happens all the time there.     
have to agree with ron had several traps roll, and group together in the creek, when we left the creek
and crabbed the mud flats 3.1-3.9' of water we caught 75 in 2 hours in june.... and that was not luck
that was two years in a row on the same week, if it is true, it is true..
