Not great but better.  Either way, it's good to see the numbers rise...

April 27, 2015 ANNUAL WINTER DREDGE SURVEY - VMRC, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Potomac River Fisheries Commission jointly released today the results of the 2015 blue crab winter dredge survey which showed moderate improvement in the health of the stock, despite a cold winter that killed an inordinately large number of crabs. The survey is conducted annually by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science and Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Although we truly won't know until the water warms up and we get out there and get the traps wet, I do like the way it looks on paper.  Here is a snippet of the numbers from 2011 up to this current survey...
