Just to spur some debate, I wonder how many of you see global warming/Global cooling as the cause of smaller and less crabs this year.  I have my own thoughts as I have watched the cyclic rate of reproduction of harvestable crabs change from year to year.  The alarmists are saying it is Global Warming.........the realists are saying it is just a cyclic change due to Hurricanes, cold temperatures, ice covering, etc. that are just seasonable.  No females, ban all crabbing, put in place a moratorium.  I have seen it all over the years and I am convinced that you can't couple the low incidents of bountiful crabs to anything else but "it is just one of those down years".  Many things have happened to cause the lower than usual takes this year.  I have seen it happen at least 7 times, maybe 8 times over the years when it was almost impossible to take home dinner, never mind a bushel.

For you people who are serious about crabbing, what are your thoughts HuhHuhHuhHuhHuh

the crabbing in NJ by me has finally caught up to just about expectations for this time of year.  The bay is 82 degrees.  The biggest issue we have is the south wind that cooled off the ocean about 20 degrees last week and shut the fishing part down pretty good.  The ocean temp doesn't change the bay temp to much and since the crabbing is done in the bay, the temp of the water isn't making any difference.  In my opinion, it is only hurting the fishing part that is done on the ocean side.  On a different note though, the cold water is keeping the colder water fish around a little longer.  Summer Fluke came to a halt but the seabass and ling fishing is holding its own

I'm curious, how does a south wind cool off the ocean?
