Wow, very impressive. 50 pots by hand, all by herself and still enjoying a cold beer with her crabs at the end of the day. I too would love to meet her.

My mom is 77 and loves crabbing she uses 30 ring traps and goes 1-2 times a week. I try and take her out in my boat at least once a season. She pulls those traps in so fast a crab does not stand a chance, and she still gets really excited about it.

I am 74 and this lady confirms my belief that if you keep moving fast enough, then old age will not catch you.  LOL

 Guess I better start moving a little faster then. Maybe vitamins will help?   Or was it the beer the lady in the video was drinking?

Not me. I hope every female gets caught and the crab population disappears. Maybe then you will stop posting!

Per the video poster on youtube: "Charles Bercher Calvert bay near point lookout. It's a tributary of the Chesapeake. "

 Pretty sure if that happens, this forum is done. Not to mention folks looking for a new source of income.  Sure will miss crabbing.

  I'm 66 so need to hang in at least 15 more years. I may need to get a new outboard for the skiff, maybe not.

By the time I turn 81 I get the impression that the only crabbing that I'll be doing is as the bait.

My ashes will have been long spread over the Wye River by then. I will be down there trying to guide the crabs towards existing trot lines for my fellow crabbers.
