When Isabelle hit, did it kill the crabbing for the year? I wasn't able to get on the water after the storm, so I do not have first hand experience. With a possible hit from Florence next week, I worried about the rest of this year.

I wouldn't worry about it, Fastest bushel I ever caught was 2 days after a hurricane came thru. Water was dirty, but the crabs were still there.

 I recall a post earlier this season about "is the crab season over" after a storm.  LOL, no and no.  The Dam has done it's share to make the Chesapeake Bay look bad, along with a lot of fresh water.  Yet, from the reports I see on BCA, the crabbing is still there and getting better. I'd wait and see what happens, seems the weather men can be wrong with their predictions at times.

I remember back in 2004 or 2005 getting a lot of hurricanes. They pushed so much warm water this way, we were doing good crabbing through October.
