Met my buddy from Pittsville halfway and spent a pretty day on the river.  10 perfectionist rings and 10 box traps both with necks.  Nice mix of crabs, some smalls, a few doublers, some dark and pretty ones that make you say "that's a nice crab!".  Water was 86 degrees and we stayed between 10-14 ft.  Leapfrog the line and got about 4-5 keepers per run.  Picked up and tried some fresh ground and glad we did.  Ended up with 42 and got home in time to watch some of the O's game.

I was there at the Tred yesterday (Tue) in the morning and pulled out around 11:00 AM. Ended up with 36 crabs of mixed sizes. A lot of small crabs where I was laid out. The comm crabbers weren't setting the Tred on fire like someone was saying last week. They were saying that 3 bushels of #1's is a good day. DNR said it was going to be a great year. Still waiting.

Most commercial boats came in at noon.  Looked like most were coming in from the Choptank.  How deep were you?  You're right about 3 bushels...that was my observation of the ramp at noon.

My trot line was in 8 to 10 feet and I moved my ring nets any where from 15 to 6 feet and moved them all over the area that I was crabbing in. Seemed like the deeper water wasn't doing as well. Every day is different. I have used clam bags in my ring nets at times and they don't seem to make much different. Between the clam bags and the jelly fish it makes if tough pulling. I am happy with the amount of crabs I took home. There are really a mess of small crabs there.
