Started at Riverbreeze park a bit after 6:00 am with 5 ring nets baited with chicken backs.  The bite was really slow.  I waited it out for about 2 hours and only left with 3 male crabs...2 measuring 6 inches the other 5.5.  I decided to stop by Goodrich's on my way home and dropped my 5 ring nets along with an actual trap.  I pulled up 11 decent crabs all in the 5-5.5 range.  I did notice they are starting to get a bit fuller.  Mixed in these 11 were a lot of smaller throwbacks.  I stayed at this location for 2 hours.  right before leaving I pulled my trap that had been soaking since I arrived.  It had two good size males in it.  I had never used one of these traps before.  I think I will bring this with me from now on.  All in all a good day.  The action is definitely not as good as it was last year but seems to be picking up a bit from the beginning of the year.

Thanks for the report and glad to hear you got some!
I took a drive around on Sunday 9-30-2018 there were no crabbers at Riverbreeze, Goodriches or the north causeway. I looked but didn't see any crabs either.
While at Goodriches I tested the water temperature: 88-89F. Crabs begin to die when the water hits 91F! 
I also checked the salinity but my cheapo meter didn't even register! Basically fresh water.
I didn't taste the water. I'm waiting for the weather to moderate a bit! It's been too hot for too long!
