Hubby wants to crab, so we're going to try. He does pretty good driving the boat with the dipper down. He still will miss the bouy now and again. He claims we need the practice. I do pretty well handling deck duties. I refuse to drive the boat. Thats his job. We trotline on a 24 ft pontoon. He has it set up pretty well. We get a lot of strange looks, and laughed at alot, but he says this is what God gave us and we'll use it till He says otherwise. Will let ya know how things went tomorrow night.

Good luck, hope you catch some. As far as the boat, with enough practice, any boat will get it done.  Your boat probably has a lot of space on it to crab and fish.
 We all know it's the dipper who gets the blame , LOL.

Just tell Al to leave his gun home tomorrow . The wind might be so strong it might blow the crabs off the line before you can dip them or the crabs might get seasick on the boat.

 Rooting for you to catch a crab or two, or more. Be safe, it looks like it might get windy tomorrow. Sure was windy today. But that sun felt great with the heat it provided.

Well, wind never slowed down last night. Hubby gonna wait it out. Wind must be 15 already and he said the toilet had white caps first thing this morning. Spring is a change season so we are gonna wait on the weather. If any of yall go today be careful, good luck and God bless.

 Maybe his paddle will also work for golfing. Definitely for putting.

Way to go.  Is that the result from just one pass?

Hey yall. This is Al. My bride told me she signed up here. Yes, that was one pass of 900 ft. We run two 900 ft lines. Today we had one line that consistently gave us bags like that. We moved the other line twice before we found a place it would catch. The bait was 5 day old chicken necks. They were fished Monday ad Tuesday and iced Wednesday and Thursday.  I have never crabbed this way before and am learning as i go. Because crab pots are everywhere here, we have a hard time finding clear places to set. Today we set near the mouth of little river and started in 4 ft of water and ran out from the hill through a line of pots. Now, even though those bags were ful of crabs, the highest keepers we had all day was 10 out of one pass. Still encouraging to see this work though. We got on the water at 0700 off at 1530 and caught maybe a bushel and a half altogether. But it was fun as could be to see Frans face when we pulled those heavy bags up. Thanks for all the encouragement.  And yes, we do have a 8x8 front section of clear deck to work on when the gear is set. Praise God for a safe day out and in and all the crabs and things learned today. Going to bed now. Gotta rebait tomorrow evening and repair some snoods.

Oh yeah, she missed the line twice, and i caught the bouy once and drove too far from it one time. All in all, the flintstone crabbing crew is improving.

Part of the day when things don't go perfectly. Still fun though when you catch the crabs and even better eating them. Always a lot of memories (good or bad) come from being on the water. Sounds like you and the Misses make a great team, that's quite a memory in itself. Your a lucky guy.
 Hope you have a great season of memories and thanks for sharing your trip. Crab On

Thanks 130. You are right, i can't count the times we sit and talk about when we fished the first time. Nor the looks and queries my wife gets when she tells people she helps me fish. Everything we've ever done has always been together.  Including living in a big truck for 3 yrs cause she wanted to take a ride after our kids were gone. Thank God for the woman He made for me. I don't deserve such a gift. Crab on, be careful and good luck.
