Wanted to get 1 more trip in, before the fat lady sings. Asked a half dozen crabbers if they were interested in sharing a boat, but couldn't find any takers. Decided to go solo, out of Oceanic. Glad I went! 2.5 hours of actual crabbing, filled the bushel. Nothing big, mostly 5.25- 5.75, with a few 6+, culled at 5". Ran a line of 9 low profile box traps, with chicken drumsticks, west of the bridge. Lots of doubles and triples, and 1 quad. Threw back several 4.5- 4.75" crabs and any females under 5.5. With all the crabs there, I could have been a little more selective with the size, but still not 100% physically, so wanted to bushel out ASAP. Not a veteran of running strings of traps and 1st time doing it solo. Took a couple runs to get it down, but smooth running once I did. Don't know if they'll be there after this cold snap coming in, but they sure were hungry today!

AWESOME job especially doing it solo.   I definitely struggle with solo crabbing.

tough going solo.  Its easy until you have a problem.  Picking up the trot line is hard by yourself also.  Crabs still running here.  Word here is the crabs are Thick near the mouth of the Mississippi River.  I've been catching 4 or 5 grey boxes (lugs) and one commercial guy came in with 25.  Still I'm having fun and enough money to pay for next years license.

GOOD LUCK GETTING ANY NOW.

I passed on Friday trip due to extreme conditions.  The water temps in the Sink and Shrewsbury are solidly in the 40's.  I'd be amazed at a half dozen if any right now.
