Crabbed the Elizabeth river today wit 2 commercial pots and 12 open top pots for 2 hours. Caught 15 crabs all not legal and 12 were males and 3 females, crabbed in 7-8 feet of water, water temp was 59 degrees.Talked to a commercial crabber said they are in deeper water and have not gone in the river yet, maybe a few more weeks. Took my boat out for a shakedown cruise 20 foot Chincoteague scow I think its going to be a fun boat with more room.

Nice looking boat. The look of it reminds me of an old Boston Whaler.

Thanks for sharing the photo of it.

That's a nice looking boat . Looks like plenty of room for crabbing gear and baskets. Do you run a trotline off of it too?
