I dropped my five topless traps in the water off the smaller south dock at 2 pm right around the incoming tide start. One other crabber on scene. In 2 hours I got 4 crabs then I relocated to the larger main dock at 4 pm to give that one a try. I stayed another 2 hours and caught 3 more crabs. I was using a single chicken neck per trap and they were getting rather used up by the time I left. There was about four more crabbers at the main dock and space was at a minimum. All in all a productive trip and I was satisfied. I was using square topless traps with drop down doors. I was dropping the traps straight down alongside the dock. The rest of the crabbers were using the ring traps and throwing them out away from the dock. They were doing better than I was!
I also caught a lot of small crabs that were all released to grow bigger. I did catch two small Blue Crabs that were red in color but they had big claws compared to their body size. Unusual!I also caught one Jacknife Fish that was released.

Nice report. I had to look up the picture of a jackknife fish, very cool looking fish.
