great catch and pics.  for such a long period of time - do you ice the crabs on the boat?  how do you keep them "snappy"....lol.  I'd get a hernia dunking that blue bushel basket into the water constantly... Tongue
I keep a wet towel over them and make sure the towel stays wet by dipping it alot. never dip your basket in the water, you will get more dead loss that way than just keeping them cool. Out of 68 crabs we didnt have a single dead one

X2. Also, especially if it's real hot, I keep frozen 2 liter bottles in a cooler. I'll keep one in the basket with the crabs just to keep them good and cool. When get back to the dock, I pull out 2 fresh ones to lay on top along with te damp burlap. Works great.

I watched a guy a few years ago dipping his basket full of crabs at the ramp at Wye River. The bottom fell out and he released all. He went after them and retrieved the one that got his finger. I tried not to laugh and walked away. His poor buddy was not impressed. Can't imagine that conversation on the way home.

I don't think the whole wet towel or burlap thing means much. I was out and dumped a teeny-weeny in the boat and the little bugger got under my seat. He was there for 3.5 days and was alive and clicking his claws at me when I went to get something out of my boat. This is on an aluminum boat that can scorch your butt. BTW I do keep them dampened while out.

Yeah, that's because he was by himself. If in the basket, there;s a whole bunch of other threats. The burlap or towel keeps them calm when bunched together on top of each other.
