I've been going out and catching a few for the house.  My buddy wanted some so we planned a trip to my favorite spot in Pass Manchac.  Met at the launch for 0600 and dropped the first line at 0630.  1st run 6, 2nd 5, 3rd 2.  Plenty of little crabs 1-5 inches.  By 0900 we only had 2 dozen in the boat when we decided to move to Lake Pontchartrain.  After a 20 minute boat ride we arrived at an area I haven't been in 20 years.  Dropped the 1st line in then the 2nd.  1st run 12 nice crabs.  Then we averaged 6 per run.  By the time we decided to call its quits there wasn't much bait on the lines.  One of the 600' lines with 125 snoods only had 60 baited snoods left.  The other was missing 46.  The small crabs were eating me alive.  One run we counted 48 small crabs and that was with many empty snoods.  By the end of the morning we ended up with 66 crabs.  Mixed 5-7 inches males / females, fat / skinny.

Tide-  not much,  slow drift to a falling tide.
Water temp- upper 80's
Water depth- 5-6 feet
Air temp- Hot 90* PT cloudy,  no wind
1200' trot line
bait CN

Driving home I realized that yesterday 7-11 was my anniversary.  Then the scramble was on.  Usually my wife works from home but she had to go to the office for meetings.  By the time she got home I had flowers and a card waiting for her.  I do my best work under pressure. laugh

Nice catch, and nice save!
Yeah, the smalls will destroy the bait, seemingly faster than large crab will.  Maybe their little claws can get into the nooks and crannies of the necks better than the claws of the big ones... just a wild-assed guess  Cool

With the water temperature so high, glad to see you caught crabs. Where I like to crab, the water temperature is 88 degrees right now. And the water if very dirty do to high wind.

Thanks for sharing your report and photos.

BTW, good thing you remembered your wedding anniversary otherwise you might have been the one in "hot water" if you get my drift.  Wink

Crabbing, enjoying the water, meeting new people, making new friends, that's what it's all about.
