I went out for some solo kayak crabbing on Friday. Launched near Blackberry Bay around 1:30 PM on the incoming tide with six topless and three ring traps, baited with chicken legs. I headed for the area around the 38th buoy and found a few boats there working hard pretty close to each other. So I kept some distance and tried laying down a line in the general area of the 37th but came up with lots of cabbage and only a few crabs. I moved around a little until I found them, probably at around 3:00 PM, getting close to high tide. Once I was on them, I was pulling a crab or two (or three) in just about every trap for about an hour. I ended up with close to a half bushel--three dozen good-sized males, mostly around 5.5 inches but a few around 6.5. The pleasure craft boat traffic was heavier than I expected on a weekday in late October. So I was pretty busy keeping the kayak upright. But that's a small price to pay for a good haul of sweet and meaty fall crabs.

At the end of the day, it's not about how many fish or crabs you put in the cooler but about how many memories you put in your life and the lives of your "mates".

You won't regret it. Kayak crabbing is really fun. And good for the appetite.
