Couldn't take it any more; I wanted, no needed, some crabs!
I first ran down to the Canaveral Seashore at a good spot that has always produced except for today! Traps were in the water at 7:30. After two hours and pulling 5 ring nets baited with chicken necks every 15 minutes I had a skunk! Three necks were missing even with the bait clip I use so there is something down there but I saw no crabs.
I then ran up to Goodriches dock and traps were in the water at 10:00.  I got eleven crabs in three hours but the catch slowed down at around 11:00. Tide was slack during my time there and I didn't see the Gator but there were Mullet jumping everywhere! It was another hot day today and I am still waiting for the heat to break. The crabs caught were on the small side and all but two were whiteys. There were a lot of 2-3 inch crabs caught and returned. Hopefully they will all grow up to be good crabs next year. This year has been awful and the worst I have experienced.
While down on Canaveral Seashore I spoke with a fisherman who said he was down on Biolab Road (A well know crabbing spot) and said he saw no crabbers there and the water was green and stinky!
The water temperature where I got skunked was 81F so it has dropped 8F degrees.
Speaking with local fishing guide friends of mine they say that the seagrasses have been reduced by 85% in the Lagoon! The seagrasses are where the juvenile crabs and shrimp seek refuge from predators during their development. If there is no seagrasse the chance of their being consumed increases dramatically.  I am curious to see how the shrimpers do this winter? The Mosquito Lagoon is in bad shape right now and has been all summer. There has been numerous Manatee, Porpoise and Sea Turtle deaths in the Lagoon and recently Red Tide has also appeared in the area that they are "monitoring".  In our recent elections I voted for those that said they were interested in cleaning up the Lagoon. It needs a lot of help now!
